The first mount I ever bought from the crown store was my Senche Lioness and I always tend to go back to her if I switch mounts for any reason on my main char. I use my flame atro Senche a lot, too, but my Lioness will always be my fave. I use a wolf for my Khajiit's mount, though, something about her riding a big cat seems... off, lol.
One of these days, if it comes back, I'll get the Dro'mAthra Senche, I LOVE that one and can't help feeling a bit envious when I see others with them.
On PC I have the black senche and the dwarven spider mount which I really like especially the sounds and animations. On PS4 which I've been playing lately I got the Guar flame mount and the Bear frost mount. Both are really cool.
I prefer interesting mounts, so the choice is inapropriate for me. And I do not like the look and movement of hexapods. (dwemer spider, aphis (nix ox))
From the crown crate apex mounts I liket the elemtal ones, dwemer ones and stormacallers, I didn´t like undead ones, of the green ones other I am udecided.
I don't have a specific favorite as I like different mounts based on the character I am pairing them with. I like the flame atronach horse with my Dark Elf magDK, the new frostbane senche with my Khajit stamblade"thief", my orc stamplar "crafter" rides a camel of ill omen. I just like what ever seems to fit them best, it is the same way with the rest of my characters. If absolutely forced to pick I would probably have to go with piebald destrier as I have used it the most of any mount I have had.
Despite of their sick look and silly animation, I prefer horses. Regular horses without shining/decaying/sparkling effects. The only exception for me so far is the Storm Atronach Horse, which I don't posses. Seconds for me are guars. Kagouties, Nix-Oxes and camels are also good looking. Dwemer animunculi mounts (robospiders) are great as well, but it's not my style. Cats, bears and wolves are just weird. If I were 6 years old, I'd probably love to ride a burning panther, a red eyed wolve or whatever, but I'm not.

The Witch-Knight Charger is still my favorite mount that I’ve ever seen in the crown store or a crown crate. I’d love to see more gorgeously detailed and culturally unique ‘mundane,’ non-undead, non-Daedric mounts.
That horse is the one time I regretted not making an impulse purchase. And I totally agree, more detailed, cultural regular horses.
I keep saying it everywhere: I want a broader variety of horses! Someone earlier in the thread mentioned that they'd like to see the horses' models brought up to the quality of the other mounts, and I agree with that wholeheartedly. As for the kind of horses, I much prefer the ones that look organic; mostly the natural looking ones, but I'm broadly allowing for things like the nightmare courser, fang lair courser and zombie horse in this category. The elemental ones do nothing for me.
