I am starting an empire knight based army and was wondering how to store cavalry in a GW box. can you get 2 horsed (without rider) into two normal slots. is it wise not to glue the rider to the steed. any feedback welcome!

You've got it right, as far as I'm concerned - I don't typically glue the riders to the horses. Much, much easier to transport that way. For a GW case, I'll cut the trays so theres a horse, then its rider, then another horse, then its rider, and so on...
Someone else might have a better notion, but that's the best way I've found.
I don't glue the riders to their horses either. When I was assembling some High Elf Silver Helms I noticed that the riders' legs are slightly wider than the base, so when you rank them up it doesn't really work too well. If I'd glued the riders down one or two might have had to be tilted to one side, so that their legs didn't get in the way of the guy either side so I decided not to glue them and just sit them on the horses. Some still have to end up tilted but at least they aren't stuck that way.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

Don't have to worry abgout it so much as I play dwarves now, but I used to cut foam layers to fit my dark riders and cold one kights back when I used to collect dark elves.
aut viam inveniam aut faciam / I'll either find a way or make one.
You can either cut the foam that comes with the box or buy some from Figures in Comfort as they do a tray that holds 16 cavalry and fits into a GW box. I have found them to be highly useful as you can just swap the trays in and out according to what army you want to transport.
