Benefit: This strange collection of leather straps and bindings will cause any animal placed within its center to grow large enough for the current owner of the magic item to ride. Land based animals now move at 150′(50′), flying creatures soar at 180′(60′) and swimming creatures move at 120′(40′). The chosen animal must be of animal intelligence or less and once harnessed will understand and obey the commands of its rider. Any attacks the mount makes do 1d8 points of damage. This magic item does not affect any mounts that the owner of the magic item could normally ride.
Usable by: Anyone.
