As I understand it, there are several species of riding animals present in central Genertela, but some are only ridden by particular tribes, whilst others, such as sables and horses are common riding animals. I am assuming that whilst a Sartarite might be able to buy a rhino, only a Praxian could train it and ride it as a war mount successfully... Some mounts can be trained to carry their owner into a conflict, but do not fight themselves. Cavalry mounts are trained to stay calm in battle and carry their rider where they want to go amidst the noise and hubbub of a battle. They are not trained to fight in battle and because of this, they cost less to train. War mounts are trained to respond absolutely to the demands of the rider and ignore outside influences. Some can be trained to enter a battle and fight for their rider, using their natural weapons: kicking, trampling, biting, goring. This requires expensive training so that the mount can coordinate its attacks with its rider. The Praxians share a powerful relationship between rider and mount, and a member of a Praxian tribe can ride the herd beast of his tribe with ease, in peace and war, for they ride almost before they can walk. They will only ride another animal if they have no choice (this is a matter of great shame) but would never touch a horse, not even to eat it.
