So far we have not had a single traditional static battle in a dungeon corridor. Every battle has been outdoors and been impacted by terrain, elevation, speed of movement, surveillance, concealment, and position. The enemies fight smart.

Well, my "horse" has a 50' Speed, but cannot travel faster than that (no x2 or more running).

I gave fair warning about smart bad guys. I figure if they have high int they are smart enough to figure out 'hey this is how I lose, let's not do that.'

Don't worry however the mindless hordes and fun smashing will come. Just wanted the first adventure to make a statement about baddies actually trying to kill the party.

true but I already mentioned how you guys were left out because you did not have the movement to keep up once.

The inability of all party members to move at the same speed seriously cut down on the options available.

One time I would like to confer with a party prior to character creation and background to ensure all needs are met in composite and each member have similar qualities *such as movement speed* so that the party can work in concert.

That's called being a DM. If you give it a go, I'll submit a suitable pc!

Also, I've never seen a properly organized party in 10+years of roleplaying. no matter the system, players are gonna play.

No, it is not being a DM. It is teamwork amongst the players. However, for a play by post experience with competitive recruitment, the DM would need make it possible for selected players to coordinate prior to character creation.

I've got to say. If the players make a plan, such as a downhill charge and an open plains combat against mounted foes, and fail to calculate for their own differences in movement, I can't do much there. I gave choice of terrain, party decided and I don't take over party decisions.

Btw, just saying it because there might be more people incoming, Small characters can ride horses, the rules say "at least a size larger" but it's not mandatory that a ride can only be a size larger. Otherwise WotC wouldn't be able to explain humans on elephants. You just need a specialized saddle, but it's doable.
