Re: can anyone tell me how to get the riding skill???
Hengstacer farm, north of bree, is all about horses for players. I'm a little concerned tho, that you think horses are a way to avoid dying. Not true for player-horses. Stable rides are immune to interception ( as long as they actually work - i.e. not stalling half way forcing you to dismount into the middle of a mob pack), but player horses just get some hit points which mobs blow away first, forcing you to dismount when they are all gone. You can re-mount after sorting out whatever trashed your horse, just don't assume player horses grant safe passage across high level areas. That's stable rides only.
