    Depends. If the horde only has S4 or less it's not like your going to lose many demigryphs. I would happily charge the demigryphs straight in while later charging a halberdier bus to engage corner to corner (breaking their steadfast without being in much danger).

    FAQ version 1.1 says

    "Q: Do a Warrior Priest’s Righteous Fury and Battle Prayers affect
    his unit’s mounts? (p36)
    A: No."



    The best support for Demigryphs is Hurricanums and/or Heavens magic.

    The riders will get Hatred, for what it matters. Psychology generally does not translate down to the mounts like that though, so the Demigryphs themselves will not get re-rolls. Because of that, I'd say that it's not worth adding a Priest to the unit - the Gryphs are the ones doing the majority of the damage, the riders are just there to point them in the right direction and yell encouragement.

    I'm suprised about the battle prayers as they are spells. i use the spells on them (namely the ward and re roll wounds) i think 4 is the best i have tried halberds and lance and i think its better to have the 1+ armour save and in my 1000pt list i run 8 of them and i haven't lost yet 4 games 4 wins (this is a new army)

    Some recent experience for me shows that Life is also an excellent lore with gryphs. Regrowing D6+1 wounds of gryphs back (with throne of vines then regrowth) is game-changing. I held up a massive block with three demis all game as they went down to one wound then came back repeatedly. All in all he killed 9 demigrphys and didn't get points for a single one because I flank charged and broke them.
    Honey badger don't care.

    I use a level 4 light now thats carnage asf WS10 I10 extra attack their really is no one in the game that could withstand that and I think hordes are less and less frequent now people are going more for depth than hordes as most armys in use are the elite ones with generally only 5 wide so the opponent is getting 18 of their 30 possible attacks. so i find when i play my 4 bosted by light very quickly make there way through units so i am very happy to slam them in even without magic they are pretty tough and will often carry several rounds of combat
