Um, what's up with the Riding skill? It's not explained in the list of skills. Both Skald and Galdr have it on their boards, once, but nobody else, not even the Crusader, who has Active Powers pertaining to attacking from the back of a horse.

Does the Riding skill even exist, and if not, what's supposed to be on the Skald and Galdr boards instead. (My money's on Sneak for the Skald...)

The riding writeup makes an appearance in DotN- please sub in anything you find appropriate until then! :)

What do you mean "sub in" - substitute Riding with another skill, or make up our own definition of the Riding skill?

Riding
[Difficulty +0, Physical]

To simply ride a horse, there is absolutely no need to perform a ride check. However as the circumstances get more complicated, the Norn may require the players involved to perform a check. Good reasons would be to maintain control of a mount as an ambush is sprung, or to carry an extra rider while navigating a dangerous mountain pass during a blizzard. Without any ranks in riding only weak attack and defend actions may be performed from the back of a mount. Spells with adjacent range may not be cast, only with an ability or meta that extends that range would spells from a mount be possible. As more ranks are gained, some of these limitations go away.
Rank // Benefits // Combat Bonuses
1 // Can perform attack actions and spells with no penalties // Mount gains a +1 Movement bonus
2 // No more skill checks needed when on horseback and performing challenging maneuvers // Physical damage dealt while on the mount gains a +1 bonus
3 // Can ride a monstrous quadruped // Mount can synchronize initiative automatically (free action) within 1 position of rider’s initiative
4 // No more skill checks needed when on a flying mount // Can perform attack actions and spells with no penalties while on a flying mount

So shouldn't Crusaders have the Riding skill at least once?
