It depends on skill for me.
Make saddle to help improve Horsemanship.
Make Saddle.
Enchant it.
I could see a form of the Attribute Effect formula.
Books not handy and other pc with rules off.  So I'll guess..

EL4 Horsemanship.
Formula is what (El+1)x10%
+50% improvement.
So EL4 is now EL6.
We can rationalize this by saying saddle supports via balance and such.
But it has to be taken on a case per case basis.
I don't see a generic one rule fits.
For example a Whip hide/handle to help with Whip.
So let's say its a +2EL.
But issue is how? If person is untrained it 
shouldn't just make them a EL2 expert.
So rules like training must be involved.  Min of eL0 or spell has no effect.
Use the daily limit or always on/
I'd have to allow it for a use per day thing.
