With a flash, a glowing, golden suit of barding for your special mount appears.
You create a suit of barding for your mount to wear. The armor appears on your mount, fitting perfectly. The golden barding you create has no armor check penalty and has no effect on your mount’s speed. The exact nature of the barding depends on your caster level.
