Due to their odd body shape they receive a -4 on all Ride Checks).

Magical Traits
Petrifying Gaze
Gorgon no longer have the abilities their ancestors once held to turn those who gaze apon them into stone, but they still retain the ability to slow them down for a time. For a number of times per day (based off their intelligence Modifier), as a standard action a Gorgon may cause a person looking at them (or who has them within their field of view) to make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 Character Level + Intelligence modifier). Upon failure, the person and its gear take on a stone like appearance, and are unable to move (as if under the effects of Hold Person). A Gorgon can not effect the same person with their ‘Petrifying Gaze’ more then once per day (although another Gorgon can attempt to do so).
