The warlord’s saddle is a finely-made masterwork military saddle, typically adorned with symbols of its creator’s homeland, a military crest, or a holy symbol of a church (though it does not function as a holy symbol).
When placed upon a creature suitable for a mount,the creature is immediately adorned in masterwork barding of the rider’s choice, appropriately fitted for that creature and engraved with the same symbols and crests the saddle itself has. This does not function if the creature is already wearing barding. The rider upon the warlord’s saddle can speak a command word to hide or bring out this barding. Furthermore, the warlord’s saddle can be enchanted like a set of masterwork barding, using the cost of the saddle as the cost of the masterwork item.
