In this episode of 'Wasting Time with Phill', we take a look at how mounts and riders interact with their saving throws.
How does a mount interact with its rider in regards to Reflex saves?
- If a mount has a better Reflex saving throw, can the rider use its save instead of his own?
- If a mount has evasion and the rider does not, does the rider gain the benefit of it?
- The opposite: If a mount doesn't have evasion and the rider does, does the mount gain the benefit?
- Is the relationship between rider and mount important? E.g., animal companion, special mount, familiar, 'bought the mount with gold', 'raised him from a pup', etc.

Edit: After some insightful words from Jonathan Hobbs, I rephrased my main question and included subpoints as specific examples of the kind of things I am questioning.
