War-steed Appearance

Barding is Armour for Horses.
In LOTRO, distinctive Barding is available for your War-steed to allow you to customize its appearance.
Note however, that none of these barding items change any War-steed Stat. War-steed Stats are only modified by points applied to War-steed Traits and Legendary Bridles.
