The Nether is a really unpleasant place to travel largely because it is both rugged and filled with lava. A regular old horse in the Nether is also a horrible form of transport because, unless you specifically build a nether highway your horse will either burn alive in lava or is simply incapable of moving through most of the terrain. Therefore, I have two suggestions, tailored to (1) the lava problem, and (2) the ruggedness problem:
- A new horse that can run on lava and not be hurt by fire. To keep them from replacing the use of regular horses they would move slower on land and get hurt by water (including rain).
- Skeletons can ride spiders, but why not us? Introduce a rare type of spider found only in the Nether that can be tamed and mounted. Since spiders can climb this would allow players to navigate the more rugged parts of the Nether more efficiently without having to pillar everywhere.
Both of these mobs would go extremely well with the Nether update, since they would allow players better access to the new biomes.
