I might be missing a cmd somewhere, but I just found stables and bought ponies for the party. But when I accidentally clicked on them directly, I dismounted and apparently the ponies ran off because I couldn't seem to re-mount.

Great port though - love the modern usage of the mouse and the autocombat.

When you're on horseback, when you click on yourself (or press X), you'll dismount them. You need to be on grass to dismount. The dismounted horse will stay put, but if you dismount anywhere but out in Sosaria, you mustn't leave the area or the horses will disappear by the time you come back.

In other words, dismounting your horse just within a town is a very bad idea. If you leave town and re-enter, the horse won't be there anymore.

You can safely dismount your horse just outside of town, enter the town to do your shopping, then leave and your horse will stay put.

I hope this explains what happened to you. If it doesn't jibe, please let me know!
