Anything in the MM that says Cohort in the Level Adjustment can be trained as regular mount. To buy a mount find the NPC level (14th or lower based on lowest party Cohort level) and look up the NPC Character Wealth and divide by 4 for the cost to train that mount.

NPC Character Wealth by Level

1st 900 gp 11th 21000 gp
2nd 2000 gp 12th 27000 gp

For a Paladin special mount, you are limited to Heavy Warhorse if you are medium.

We will have a special house rule for alternate mounts of equal ECL to that of the special mount. This will take away powers if you use something with higher than 4HD or a LA.


The Giant Owl is a 4HD creature with a +2 LA (cohort). Make him your mount at a loss of 2 bonus HD and use the chart from paladin mount for 11-14 for paladin mounts.
