Maybe any character classes that can handle specific typical steed mounted weapons, such as a horeseman's flail or mace, composite bow, lance, etc. gain warhorse 'proficiency' when selecting this type of weapon proficiency for their PC?
So fighters and their subclasses, as well as clerics, would be classes that could handle a warhorse effectively into combat? That just wouldn't have the special additional abilities specific to cavaliers and Paladins.
I'm thinking that thieves, magic-users, Druids, monks, bards, and their subclasses as applicable, would not be able to effectively handle a warhorse in mounted combat?
I handle it like Gene; if you're an adventurer you can ride a horse. If you're a small adventurer you can ride a pony. If there's a cavalier in the group I might break it down more than that, but otherwise that's worked well enough for the past 35 years.
