IMHO, they should implement a 'Collar' space for your mounts, in which you could attach a trinket, or going with the theme, a 'Tag'. Something like that would work just fine, and wouldn't change the mechanics of the game at all, as far as I can see.

Sorry for the double post, but I actually just thought of another reason they should do 'Tags'. Why not have a 'Decrease the chance you'll be unmounted when struck by x%' tag, or possibly a boost to health/mana regen when mounted? Just a few more ideas, but I like the possibilities, myself.

That might be cool for other things, but I'd prefer a passive personal ability in this case. Blizzard's old idea to enchant each mount wasn't going to be fun either. I don't want to have to scrounge up yet another Primal Might to make a new Riding Crop every time I get a new mount. This will get even less fun as we move past Outland.

Wow...I actually like that idea.Added bonus if the 'collar' lets me name my mount/minipet.Not really needed, but "Netherwhelp" isn't exactly the name I'd give my pet. They have the ability, i.e. hunter pets, so i think it'd be nice.Also, more pokemon? :P

Tags is a great ideai'd like to see something like an interface similar to hunter pets where you could buy 'talents' or attach enhancements and trinkets for your mounts. Slots where you could attach items like saddle bags or the riding crop, or even some cool abilities such as being able to perform attacks like a talon strike or fire breath on other mounted people ala dogfighting. that would be great for pvp places like halaa.how about a stealthy trinket for allowing sneaky flying over opposing factions cities?i'd also like to see a 'homing pigeon' trinket in which you could click a location on the map and your mount would take you there similar to the flight paths.there are a ton of things that could be done with mounts and enhanced abilities.

i like this idea. i was thinking the same thing, why don't they just add another trinket slot that is specified for your mount trinkets? one thing i'd want to put there is the preserved holly. i dislike how the item is now, you click on it, ,your riding a deer, and you either dismount or get dazed and auto dismount and you loose that item. i'd like it as a permanent item that makes your mount a reindeer, or to keep it more of a rare item, you equip it in the mount slot, and right click it to activate it and the enchant lasts for an hour. no matter if you dismount or die. like the way oil enchants work. items like this could add more vanity fun for your mounts! hm, maybe we'd need 2 mount slots. one for practical items - riding crop - one for vanity/fun items.

This is what I believe the best option would be. Not because it would be super awesome and cheap and easy like the Passive Ability idea, but because it requires thought and effort without being tedious like gear swapping.
