I have one big gripe with this - the mount bond skill/perk. It's right in the middle of the tree and required to go forward into some juicy stuff.
But it just so happens that I already got a quest to find my mount, so I already got my horse.
And on top of that, I don't even want the horse I got, or any other. I want my sovereign/champion to go on foot.
So why is then the horse forced upon me? A total waste of a level point.
IMHO, it should be moved into a optional branch or something.
