Steed of the Rune-Keeper! It's the one I've ridden the most. It just seems natural. I like the Galadhrim rep horse too. I like the Nimble Black Goat too, at least the decoration (red cords, etc). I wish there was a horse like it.
While you burn at the stake, I dance with the flames. I take what you love and leave you in tears. I am relentless, unpredictable, and waiting for your last breath.
I actually like the steed of the Hunter too, I bought it for my Hunter. Was going to buy the steed of the Guardian too but there was no point since I don't just get horses to say i have them...i only want ones i'll use and I preferred Algraig.
Hmm, hard to say. I'm an avid pony collector. I have 58 steeds, so it's hard to choose between them. I'm riding the Prized Isengard Great-Pony at the moment, mostly because it's my latest acquisition and it's relatively rare. I also like the Steed of the Hunter; it feels just right as an everyday mount. I like the Steed of Minas Ithil for formal occasions.
I see your Descendant and I raise you Legimbod (if anyone knows what horse this is I'll give you an imaginary cookie)
Dusk Watch is nice but I only got him on one character, I think my favourite would be the "new" Angmar steed. But if we're talking steeds in general I might be inclined to pick Forzunk, the great black warg from the Grand Stair.
Of course, we have yet to see the Steed of the Captain.

As if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns. In dark Mindolluin's sides they dimly echoed. Great horns of the North wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last.

I'm actually digging the Noble Grey Steed that came with the Steam Starter Pack right now. I'm using it most often over the festival drop mounts I have.
Yeah, that's my favorite right now too. Great looking, 168% run speed, 250HP, no flag, what's not to like about it? Algraig looks great, but if I ever get it will probably not use it much since it is only 162%.
I've been riding the Mathom Society pony for as long as I remember.
I typically use different steeds on different characters depending on the cosmetic outfits/background lore of each character.

I ride the Dunedain Great Horse (metadeed mount) on my RK and Mini, I like it (even the zombie eyes) and it actually took a bit of effort to earn. It's too bad Turbine has decided that mounts you earn through effort can't be used for warhorse skins, only store-bought ones.
My other two favourites are the player-designed Smokey Black from MW (cappy and champ ride it) and the very old Autumn Fest pony. It's not as refined as the newer ones, but my scruffy hunter looks right at home astride it.
Occasionally break out something else for variety, like the Eriador Horse.

I like my World Renowned horse because it's the only horse that feels special to me because of what I did to earn it. I also really like the Algraig horse. In fact, if the devs let me play as a tattooed Algraig woman riding an Algraig horse, I might have an algasm. Am I allowed to say that?
Aesthetically I like the Eglain steed best. It's one of what I call the "proper" mounts as in it looks ready for a proper days work not all frilled and fancified. Its appaloosa coat is really quite striking. I'm also a big fan of the Algraig mount too.
Mounts I ride though tend to be the higher statted ones that I've aquired from various sources. The Lossoth one I'd wanted for my warden since I saw the screenies months ago so I'm delighted to have that . I ride the World horse on a couple of alts, the Dusk horse, Jester pony and my lottery won Runekeeper Steed and Steed of Night.
Gosh, there are so many great looking mounts it is hard to pick a favorite. I keep several on the quick slot bars and rotate them often. I tend to like those best that were earned via in-game achievements. I look at them and fondly remember the effort it took beyond luck of the lottery or laying down RT dollars and cents. But, that's the role player in me speaking who prefers in-game gains to those purchased outside of normal in-game activity. My characters could never accept the "outsider" Steam, Mithryl or Store Exclusives into their stable.
So, that being said, my favorites right now are The Elf Ambassador, Galladrhim and The Rivendell horses for, not only their aesthetics, but for all the work it took to earn them.

try out the plugin kragenslots!
you can set up a quickslot so you have one icon on screen, with several horses added to it in a config dialogue. you can set the icon to change to the next item in its list, so you can ride a different horse each time you click on it.
My main only has maybe 5 or a couple more than that [e.g. a basic one bought in the Bree-land horse fields, a Thorin’s hall kindred rep goat, the one you get for completing the first volume of the epic quest, a Mithril edition one,…, one or two other kindred ones] but my favourite by far is my Evendim kindred rep one. Really nice brown & white markings.
Of the ones I’ve seen but not got the Eriador horse looks great.
I wish that there was a way in-game to preview mounts, sortof like how you can "try on" cosmetics. Is there a web site that has pictures of all the mounts, by any chance? (Or at least all of the non-festival, ones?) Because I don't generally buy mounts, and one of the reasons is because I don't know what it looks like before I buy it.
So, all that being said, my favorite one right now is the "basic" dark brown one. I bought it because it matches my hair. >.>
It's one of the plain, boring ones that you can ride if you get a ride from the stables in-game. ; D
I was thinking of getting the Mathom one for my Hobbit.
I love my Inn League Mount! It looks great and it carries all the ale and beer an adventurer needs on it's back. The only drawback is it's drinking behaviour, more than once I found at least one of the kegs empty...
(on a serious note: I think the dev's do not like hobbits as much as they should. I mean, why would the stinking ale association goat not have a drinking problem...)
