I have an idea for a dragon rider mod, just like in the Inheritance Series by Christopher Paolini. First of all, when you kill the EnderDragon, it drops a dragon egg of a randomized color (Or the old dragon egg actually hatches). Either way, you then craft an incubator, like so.
                   :cobblestone:    ::    :cobblestone:  
                    :obsidian:  :_:  :obsidian:
                   :cobblestone:  :soil:  :cobblestone:

:cobblestone: = End Stone
:: = Glass
:obsidian: = Obsidian
:soil: = Bucket
:_: = Empty Space

It should take a while to incubate the egg, (Like about two stacks of coal, or 1 lava bucket) but when you place the incubated egg, a small dragon hatches, about the size of a silverfish. You can then give it a name, and the name shows above its head next to a health bar and a level* sign. when you then left click it, it shows a menu showing skills**, (Fire, Flying, Etc.) Level, name, and health***. the dragon should grow as it levels up, until it reaches the size of the ender dragon, or possibly bigger. When it gets to about level fifteen, it should be able to breathe fire, and able to ride**** at level ten. Health can be regained by feeding it raw food, and (if possible) maybe the dragon can run over and eat the food when it is dropped?
It's controls should be pretty simple:

   W=forward, S=back, A=left, D=right, Shift=descend, SPACE=ascend, F=breathe fire.

Also, maybe the dragon could drop a couple of scales every "Month" in minecraft time (Moon Cycle).
These scales could be used with a stick in the same way as a normal sword, the scales would be the color of the dragon, and so would the armor and sword. The scales would be like ingots, so all of the crafting recepies would be the same.

(IF POSSIBLE) Maybe the dragon's hatching could give you a magic bar, much like in skyrim, you  press Control to pull up a list of spells (Unlock-able with levels, much like enchanting) like Fire, Lightning, Freeze, Break (No Drops), etc. you click on a spell to equip it, then use it by pressing F, and the spell drains at your magic bar, which refills over time. If ANYBODY could find a way to make this mod, or if it's even POSSIBLE, please tell me.  :)

*The Dragon levels through combat, hitting the level 20 max reaches full size, lvl 15 unlocks fire breathing, but you still have to buy it. lvl 10 unlocks flying. it grows with each level up.

**Skills would be things like DAMAGE: 10%, 20%, 40%, 50% FIRE: Place fire, Fireball, Flame Jet, Place lava

***Raw food should heal the dragon, while cooked food works just as well.

****You would have to craft a dragon saddle:

    :feather: :feather: :feather:  
    :feather:   :Iron:  :feather:
    :arrow:  :_:  :arrow:

:feather: = Leather
:Iron: = Iron... DUH!!!
:arrow: = String
:_: = Empty Space

Which you put on the dragon (Left click)

If this mod is make-able, let alone created, could somebody also create textures for the items? i could make them, but they would look like crap  :D  You will get full credit (OF COURSE) all i am doing is requesting somebody make my idea a reality.

Have a look at this page - it has an inheritance mod idea and some of your ideas could be solutions to a couple of problems

Also, I would appreciate a Multiplayer version, for a friend's server. He's probably a bigger Inheritance fan than i am.
