While your mount enjoys the benefit of this power, its speed increases by 20 feet. Furthermore, you can make a Ride check to negate a hit on your mount as though you had the Mounted Combat feat. If you already possess this feat, you receive a +10 competence bonus on your Ride check when attempting to negate a hit on your mount. When you attempt to negate a hit on your mount (whether successful or not), the power ends.
You can augment this power in one or both of the following ways.
- If you spend 6 additional power points, you can manifest this power as an immediate action.
- If you spend 6 additional power points, you can increase this power's duration to 10 minutes per level.
