There are quite a few balancing issues related to it, and from my point of view, the effort needed makes it a waste.

In general, there are more important things to worry about.
I'm suppose I'm a bit slanted as I used a Battle Mage who gets to use pretty much all his heavy artillery from horseback and is more effective/faster with his sword chops to boot.

It's a tough call on whether it's worth it. Obviously, I have no idea what percentage Ascaron spent on honing the horse riding, but I can say that I found it an important element in setting Sacred apart from it's action-RPG competitors.
