|I was and am a big fan of the Creature Handler that unfortunately was deleted a while back. I enjoyed taming animals and fight along with them and the possibility to make mounts.
Now in NGE you can try to find a mount on the market, buy either RoW or ToOW, or do the 3 quests that grant you a mount as reward.
Below you will find the information that was posted by Barndamascus on the SWG forum --> http://soe.lithium.com/swg/board/message?board.id=gameguidesht&message.id=16322&view=by_date_ascending&page=1
I was sitting around thinking about the excitement we all had when patch 7 came out, and Creature Handlers could tame Mounts.
Not wanting new players to miss out on all the excitement I thought I’d write a short guide to getting a mount now that Creature Handlers are no longer
The easiest way to get a mount if you don't have one, is to buy either the ROTW or ToOW expansions. You get a mounted varactyl with ROTW and a mounted lava flea with ToOW.
The first and most obvious way to obtain a creature mount is to find one for sale. You could try your trade forum, or spamming in a popular cities such as Theed. Another option on the purchase route is to check vendors for old BE crafted pets that have yet to be sold.
Purchasing pets aside, there are currently 3 quest’s I’ve found that give creature mounts as rewards.
Quest 1. The Legacy Quests. (Carrion Spat)
Bikerkid has an awesome guide to the Legacy quest’s, so I wont rewrite the whole thing here The following quest is where you obtain a Carrion Spat mount.

He sends you back to Professor Hudmasse to complete the Quest.
