Horse mounts are largely Alliance only mounts. Horse mounts, in this case, includes those horses that are summoned from another plane (Felsteeds), and those that are embodiments of spirits (Paladin's Chargers, Death Knight's Deathchargers).

Stormwind Horse Breeders Quotes

Neutral non-human
Sorry, but I am not disposed to sell horses to any individual who is not considered to be at least exalted to the Kingdom of Stormwind. These steeds are the finest you'll find anywhere, and we certainly wouldn't want them in the hands of our enemies.
Not saying you're an enemy, of course... just earn the trust of Stormwind and then we can do business.
Friendly and above non-human
Years of quality breeding techniques and plenty of care allow me the privilege of showing you these horses! Please, take your time as you consider them for your mount. A horse is a companion for the ages, friend. Don't sell yourself short - get your steed here today!

Factional mounts: Apprentice

You can purchase these mounts from several vendors:

You must have riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a human, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Stormwind City.

Factional mounts: Journeyman

You can purchase these mounts from Katie Hunter, Katie Stokx or Gregor MacVince, so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40). They are reputation restricted like the apprentice mounts.

Gilneas Mountain Horses

In addition to the horses of Stormwind, patch 4.3.0 brought about two new horses for the people of Gilneas, purchasable from Alliance Astrid Langstrump <Mountain Horse Handler> in Darnassus, just outside the Howling Oak.

These horses have several differences from that of the Stormwind horse mounts. Mountain horses are slightly larger than the other horse mounts, and do not rear up and neigh for their mount special. Instead, mountain horses lean down to graze. They do not have saddles, and have slightly touched up model skins.

You must have riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20) to purchase the Mountain Horse. If you are playing as any race other than worgen, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Gilneas.

As with the normal Mountain horse, you can purchase the Swift Mountain Horse from Astrid Langstrump so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40). They are reputation restricted like the apprentice mounts.
