With a successful skill check, the rider is able to move the mount into a position just behind the target's shoulder where it can then be used to direct the animal or monster to a particular place or in a specific direction; the target is allowed a morale save to resist, with a -1 modifier per skill point in Mounted Combat. Additional skill checks may be required if the target tries to flee. The effect is broken if the target is attacked or if the target makes three successive morale checks. This skill is ineffective against intelligent animals or monsters.
