The saddle was meant to be a gift to the king of T'ien-kuo. It was selected by Master Wu. However, Li Kwang lusted after it, and swapped it for his own saddle. Once he did, he couldn't control his horse. His horse carries him to the Lady of Fearful Awakenings, and he and his men are turned to stone.
