Really good for early game, it's how most good players start, simply spawn on Ragnarok in the Highlands and near the lighthouse you will find a natural garden of carrots to tame the horses.They are a common spawn in the Highlands. Slightly different and more complicated to tame then normal Dino's so I would check that but one tamed they can be ridden without a saddle(you have to be LV 10 to tame one). With the saddle there inventory acts as a mortar and pestle as well as the only way in the game to craft a lasoo. Lasoos are useful for taming as if you knock out Dino like a pteradon you can lasoo it and drag to a more convenient location. They also harvest berries, thatch and wood well. They have normally around 400 weight which is good and they are fairly fast. All round good mount for early game...ffs why do I have the time to right that I'm sad lol.
Use him to drag unconsious or consious players, and creatures smaller than the horse, with the lasso, use it only as a travel tame with the addition of its mortar and pestle on its saddle, if you want add points on Melee damage for more torpor with the kick attack, spend points on weight, health and movement speed, -stam is pretty easy to regain, use rockaroots to tame press green triangle, Y, or E depending on the plataform once it starts going crazy while riding it.
I have a level 200+ with 300% melee and it can easily knock out a lot of creatures, including carnos, troodons and scorpions, but is still relatively easy for a level 50+ with 150% melee. Plus, their stamina is excellent if fleeing(with no bucking). So for this reason Equus are brilliant for early-mid game travel and taming. HOWEVER watch out for raptors with their new pin attack, spiders and other trapping creatures. To escape you must repeatedly jump. And finally IN ATTACK WATCH YOUR STAM BRUTHA
Maybe the best thing for knocking things with tamed me a tapejara 3 dire wolves an argy a pteranodon a raptor a rex an anky couple parasaurs a bronto and a lot more 11/10 for knocking put most points in stamina weight health movement and damage
