0011268: Mount controls direction of the adventurer after fast traveling while mounted
If you fast travel while mounted, and stop, pressing any direction will instead advance time by one turn. All movement is controlled by the mount. If it wants to stay still, pressing a direction will do nothing. If it goes somewhere, you go with it, regardless of any buttons pressed. Dismounting puts you back in control of yourself, but re-mounting does not resolve the issue. This problem began to occur after some time was spent playing. It does not happen immediately after creating a new adventurer.

After a random number of directional inputs, you regain control of your mount.
In the case of the save included, simply fast traveling while mounted will cause the issue reported.

I've had similar experiences.

I've had this experience as well, however I don't think it's an issue. The mount (horse in my case) is perfectly responsive after travelling, unless it is panicking. Upon, i.e., seeing a hostile creature.

If there's an issue, it would be if increasing the Riding skill doesn't reduce or remove the instances where the mount gets out of your control. Or if acquiring some kind of trained mount (or training it yourself) doesn't reduce that reaction's frequency.

Upon more play time, I have noticed that when your mount is panicking and out of control, the color of the mount's speed text will be blue. This is not the case with this bug.
