If you forget to bind close to the dungeon and you die... well prepare for a corpse run... but atleast you can store extra gear on your horse's saddle bags (portable bank basically)
I think riding a horse/mount across a huge continent, with a few encounters mixed in, is boring. Especially if you have to do it more than once. Seems like an unnecessary timesink, and in MMORPGs, timesinks are money-sinks.
