Getting Gold for your Mounts will be one of your biggest concerns when are you are on your road to level 60. Getting 100 Gold on level 40, and 1,000 Gold on level 60 is not something you simply get while leveling up casually, and only a few players can afford it right away. There are a lot of ways to earn that much Gold, and it's not impossible. The easiest way is to simply pick two gathering professions, but except for the high income, they will give you less direct bonuses and end-game additions, so it won't work for everyone. Below we will briefly present the most basic ones and redirect you to more detailed articles we have on the subject.
5 Best ways to earn Gold for Mount in WoW Classic
Gathering Professions - obviously the easiest and the most effortless way. Pick two of the following: Mining, Herbalism, Skinning; gather resources with those and dump them on the Auction House. Unless you are spending stuff on something silly along the way, you should have Gold for both the Mounts if you invested some extra time on exploring Areas and collecting materials. You can also make money on every other profession, however, crafting ones will require significant investments and expensive Recipes to give you sufficient income (something this may even exceed the price of the Mount itself). You could also go Fishing if you have decided to learn different professions, though I have found fishing to be the most boring activity you could possibly do in WoW.

Mats Farming - there are plenty of enemies that can be farmed for valuable items including crafting materials, Cloths, reagents, and more. This is somewhat similar to Gathering Professions, as your goal is to collect materials used by other players to level up their Professions, so depending on the market, they can be quite valuable.

Grinding Dungeons for "Bind on equip" Rares - some BoE Rares can be very expensive, as they give lower level players a big boost during their leveling process. You will usually want to grind Dungeons slightly below your current level to make the runs go smooth and fast, as BoE Items are not guaranteed drops and you will also have to roll for them with other Group members (unless you make it clear before the run that you are basically carrying the team solely for the BoEs and see if they accept your terms)
Farming for Pets - this is a very good way to earn a lot of Gold with low DPS/Gear-wise requirements from your character. The two most popular Pets that can be farmed by low-level characters are Hyacinth Macaw - dropped by all Bloodsail Pirates in Stranglethron Vale, and Whelpling Pet that can be looted from any Whelp (various Whelps can be found in Wetlands, Swamp of Sorrows and Badlands). Keep in mind that the drop chance for both the Pets is lower than 0,1% so it will require a lot of luck
Sniping deals on the Auction House - if you are lucky enough, this method can bring you a lot of Gold in a very short time. Basically you are aiming at buying underpriced items and sell them for their normal prices shortly after. Occasionally you may find BoE Epics listed for way under their regular value as a result of type for example, but remember that a lot of people will be also looking for those so you need to be extremely fast
