I also once had a halfling ubercharger that rode a cheetah. He traded his paladin mount ability for an alternate class feature and purchased a warbeast cheetah. I highly recommend the template though as a medium creature, I don't suppose the cheetah would be big enough.
Warbeast is on the last few pages of either the MMII or MMIII iirc. It gives a number of boosts including barding proficiency and +10 to base movement.

"'There aren't any beginnings,' Burton said. 'Nor any ends.
It seems to me that man has engaged in a blind and fearful struggle out of
a past he can't remember, into a future he can't foresee nor understand.
And man has met and defeated every obstacle, every enemy except one.
He cannot win over himself.'"
