PLEASE NOTE! April 3rd 2021, 1730 London time: Capita announced fix for horseshoes. Old horseshoes did not protect hooves and still do not protect hooves. Please buy new horseshoes to protect hooves.

Page name

I propose disambiguating this page from Horse and make it more findable by renaming it to Rideable Mounts. If rideable camels are significantly different in the future, further breakdown of Rideable Horses and Rideable Camels may be useful. Venia (talk) 14:28, 2 April 2021 (EDT)

I was thinking to rename it as Mounts later when camels came in... I suppose we could do it sooner rather than later.
Rideable feels like such a clunky word to me.
