Make sure that you do not have your spyglass in your hand when hopping on the Equus. If you do, it will make you auto-look through it and you won't be able to put it away. You won't be able to see the feed prompt and will be kicked off. This just happened to me on a 150 Day is during x2 -_- Please upvote so our fellow survivors know!
You can feed it then use a bola (which doesn’t lower effectiveness) and after that use fence foundations and walls to keep it in place and ride it for the duration of the tame. No need for it to run around randomly.
Feed it then mount. You won't be able to control it until the tame is done, dismounting appears to lower taming effectiveness so make sure you have a good supply of carrots (preferred food) on you. When it starts to buck you off you have to hit enter to feed it again. If you pay attention to the bottom left corner of your screen there will be a tool tip that will pop up when you can feed it abs just before it starts bucking.
These guys are easy to tame low level but a 150! The tame percentage drops as the horse runs do good luck ever taming a high level one. Unless! You knock it out build a box around it wait for it to wake up and the tame to your hearts content. Vote up to help others!
