I am playing an alchemist character in Carrion Crown and asked my GM a question he was uncertain how to answer. Perhaps the answer can be found on these forums! If an alchemist prepares a potion of spider climb, then makes his horse drink it, does the horse gain the benefits of the extract and can it then be used to ride up a vertical surface?

Sounds cool, i think someone would have to communicate to the horse.
To explain why it should drink something that doesn't taste as good as toxic waste. To explain that it should just accept the strange feelings it would experience while the potion is taking effect to avoid having to make a fort save. To explain to the horse that it is now able to run up walls etc. Oh and then having to deal with all the problems involved in upside down horse riding. I think you would need an oh-so sympathetic druid (and a Large Roll of Gaffa Tape).

I would treat it the same way as you would a mount when giving it the spell air walk. You can train your mount how to make use of that spell, so you should also be able to train your mount how to use spider climb... you got to teach your pet the trick of spider climbing....
