It is less however, when the horses are dispatched by volleys of arrows and lances set to receive the charge. This spell gives the mounts of a charge a mean of protection until they actually enter in the melee. It may also be used in numerous occasions such as leading a mass of mounted warriors into a fast flowing stream while enemies fire arrows from above, or jumping over a dangerous chasm.

10 horses/caster level are immune to extra damage from weapons that are set to receive a charge. During their charge, all horses receive DR 4 against ranged attacks. In addition, all Jump, Ride, and Handle Animal checks made during the charge gain a +4 circumstance bonus. Otherwise, the casting time is a full minute as the caster must give a rousing speech and then lead the charge!
