Run run run, crouch when close still approaching at an angle, when close enough,(stack of carrots in zero slot) click three “e” three times; one to feed, one to mount, one to start THE RIDE! Each time you get the feed prompt, hit “e” and pray it gets stuck in a corner and doesn’t run off a cliff, or into carnivores. Ignore everything but the prompt, hitting “e” without hesitation. (You cannot control the run at all). That’s it.
This stinking thing!!! So annoying!!! I was taming it on a cliff and I was a bit slow and it knocked me off. RIGHT INTO A SWAMP. I swear, while everything was eating me, sarcophagus, titanoboa and mega parana, I saw it laughing at me.
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.
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.
They are mostly found ( in my experience ) Where Carnivores are ( Raptors, Carnos, terror birds etc. ) So you really have to make sure the area is safe enough so you can hop on the equus and feed it. I hope this helps!
