As you can tell by the glowing eyes, Shadowmere is kind of a badarse. I've seen him go head-first into a dragon's breath, come out the other side on fire, and start kicking all sorts of dragon butt. There's another talent Shadowmere has, however... one that's much more valuable.
That's the only way I can come up with an explanation for his ability to emulate a mountain goat, or a 4x4.
Maybe he's part-spider. Or perhaps his horseshoes are covered with crazyglue. Because there's no other way you can make sense of this:
He's an odd one, my Shadowmere, but he's great to have around all the same.
True story: I lost Shadowmere. I rode him to a city, dismounted, and entered. When I came back out, he was gone... since he's such a badarse, I assume he went off and cleared a bandit haven on his own. It took three weeks of real-time for me to find him again, on a completely different part of the map from where I last saw him. Complete and total luck... and I'm glad I did.
He's a Bad Horse.

The people in Skyrim are, by our measure, no more than an inch tall. Your horse has teeny tiny hairs on its feet like a gecko. And while a sixty-foot dragon couldn't lift its weight off the ground even with a JATO assist, a six-inch one could do aerobatics like a hummingbird.

Mounts do that in Everquest2, also. Even if it's something like your stairs picture, but only the edge of a carpet on the ground. Mount sits at a 45-degree angle with his hindquarters sunk into the ground.
Which is an improvement over what the graphics engine did a couple-three years ago, when any mount would always be perfectly level (no pitch or roll) no matter what he was standing on...
