These spurs got their name because their owner invariably becomes a footman, or a soldier who fights from the ground rather than from horseback. The spurs look like masterwork-quality gold-chased silver spurs, and have images of horses engraved upon them. But anyone who looks closely (DC 25 Spot check) notices that the horses do not look happy infact, with their wide eyes and frothing mouths, they look terrified. Anyone wearing these spurs terrifies any horses within 20 feet of him the animals must make a DC 20 Will save to avoid running for their lives. Any horse actually touched by the spurs (even accidentally, as will happen with anyone riding a horse while wearing such devices) begins to buck like mad, and does not stop until the rider has either been thrown or has dismounted. Any Handle Animal or wild empathy checks made against horses by the spurs’ owner suffer a -15 penalty
