  • This trinket works on flying as well as land based mounts
  • It gives approximately 1.5% more mounted speed than the  [Riding Skill]/ [Mithril Spurs]/ [Carrot on a Stick] combo (and saves two bag spots). This has been tested with visual comparison to other players with varying degrees of speed enhancing items as well as with speed measuring in-game mods.
  • This trinket does NOT stack with other mount-speed increasing items such as [Carrot on a Stick] or spells such as [Crusader Aura].
  • This trinket does NOT work with any druid flight form.
  • [Skybreaker Whip] is a quest reward that does the same thing as the [Riding Crop]. The quest requires Honored Netherwing and Epic flying.
  • This and similar trinkets are often used with Wardrobe addons for quick equipping when mounting.
  • As of Patch 3.0.2 this trinket is only useful for two levels: it requires 69 to use, and does not affect anyone over 70. This item is likely only desirable to level 69 PvP twinks.
