Ride is the skill needed to ride an animal. This also includes knowledge of general care and use of equipment. This skill can be shared amongst animals that have a common form, to be determined by a DM, like a horse and a mule. But a horse and a giant beetle will require that this skill is bought twice for each. A Horse and a camel may require a DM to decide if it is close enough for one skill to share or not.
Ride checks are made during any stunts performed (such as jumping a fence), during combat, and to notice health changes in the mount.
- Simple stunt (jump a fence, hard turns, etc...): Fair
- Difficult stunts (riding at a odd angle or underneath for example): Hard
- Mounted Combat maneuvers: Moderate
- Mounts health: Fair
