This is an hilarious question if one does not know what you are talking about and take it out of context (i did) – Ben Feb 8 '11 at 1:59

Ridden pets level up as normal - by killing monsters. Note, however, that ridden pets are more docile. They will not attack a monster unless attacked first. Since monsters will randomly attack you or the pet when you are mounted, this may mean your pet gets fewer kills (and thus experience) than it otherwise would.
