A full charge of riders on the battlefield is certainly an impressive sight. It is less however, when the horses are dispatched by volleys of arrows and lances set to receive the charge. This spell gives the mounts of a charge a mean of protection until they actually enter in the melee. It may also be used in numerous occasions such as leading a mass of mounted warriors into a fast flowing stream while enemies fire arrows from above, or jumping over a dangerous chasm.

10 horses/caster level are immune to extra damage from weapons that are set to receive a charge. During their charge, all horses receive DR 4 against ranged attacks. In addition, all Jump, Ride, and Handle Animal checks made during the charge gain a +4 circumstance bonus. Otherwise, the casting time is a full minute as the caster must give a rousing speech
and then lead the charge!
