Well. If you already are running through the list of players to update
their points, whey not just have a pointer in char_data for what mob the
player have mounted ?  So if the pointer is not NULL, update the points
for that mob too..

  Maybe insert it in the player_special_data structure:

   struct char_data *mounted; /* 

And then ofcoz when mounting:

   ch->player_specials->mounted = mob;

And in unmount:

   ch->player_specials->mounted = (struct char_data) 0x0;
