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.
2nd-3rd Scale mail barding (+4 armor bonus). 4th-5th Chainmail barding (+5 armor bonus). 6th-7th Splint mail barding (+6 armor bonus). 8th-9th Half-plate barding (+7 armor bonus). 10th+ Full plate barding (+8 armor bonus).
You can cast magic vestment or other spells that target a suit of armor on the golden barding.
