All of the rules I can find on mounts and how they work deal with what happens when I'm riding my mount. I assume I can move normally based on the mount's speed and makes attacks with the mount and use it's abilities. Let's say I'm dismounted though. Can I give it basic commands like "Attack that creature" or "move over there" sort of like a ranger's beast companion or does it just stand and defend itself until I get back on? Can it make skill checks and follow me or use it's abilities while I'm dismounted?
Depends on the DM.
As a DM I would say it depends on the mount in question.
If you are riding a riding lizard then I would say it retreats to safe distance and waits for you. If you are riding a dragon then I would say that it gets its own turn of actions, but would make the encounter harder to compensate.
An adventurer and his mount have separate sets of actions on turns they aren't mounted, starting on the turn after dismounting.
