The Horseman's Reins teaches you to summon the Headless Horseman's Mount which serves both as a flying mount and a ground mount. It was the first flying horse mount in the game, and the only one to do so without wings.
Be it into the flood, or into the fire, this one will go where you require.
It functions as a ground mount in no-fly zones, in the water and in areas where you don't have the appropriate flying skills (Outland without Expert or better riding, Northrend without and Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms without ), it functions as a ground mount, while in other areas it functions as a flying mount.
Prior to Patch 4.0.1, it was not possible to mount flying mounts while swimming. Because the Headless Horseman's Mount functions as a ground mount in the water, unlike regular flying mounts, it was possible to mount in the water prior to 4.0.1 then take off by jumping out of the water.
As of patch 3.0.2, this mount was usable in combat, although it must have been channeled without interruption like any other mount.
Obtaining these reins will reward the Feat of Strength .
