Collecting horses in LOTRO has long been one of my favorite aspects of the game. So, naturally, when I learned that he upcoming November update was to have new reputation mounts available, I was all over that!
These new mounts did not disappoint and I can’t wait for this update to go live so I can enjoy these new additions to my collection!
The prices listed are what I saw on a character that already has the mount discount. I do not know if the price would be different on a character who has never purchased a horse.
I’m including pictures of interesting details and what the horse looks like from the rear. Hey, if you’re going to be staring at it while riding, might as well know what it looks like before you buy, right?
Note: These mounts were originally listed as allowing you to block, evade or parry. Unfortunately, that feature will not be making it into the November update.
Horse of Esteldin
Mathom Society Horse
Thorin’s Hall Goat
Note: Currently this mount is classified as a horse in the mount skill tab. At this time it cannot be ridden in Moria. Hopefully this issue will be addressed before the update is released.
Update 11/30/10: This mount has been confirmed to be usable in Moria!

Additional picture: Detail
*Note: These pictures of the Rank 12 Horse are not mine; they were originally posted by yossalu on the official Bullroarer forum.*
Update 11/30/10: My original assumption that this mount would be 168% speed has been found to be incorrect. This mount is the standard 162% speed.
Update 12/1/10: Found a dev post stating that the Rank 12 horse having only 162% run speed is a bug (no time frame listed on a fix, though).
