Description
Hate your over-confident, easily killed, dragon fodder horse? This mod adds a "Conjure Ethereal Horse" spell which allows the player to summon a rideable, mystical, lemony-fresh steed! Read on for more action-packed details!

==========================================================================
Details

The Conjure Ethereal Horse spell tome can be purchased directly from the Tuning Stone behind (north of) Whiterun Stables (see screenshot/map). I set the $5000 price to help keep this mod balanced so new players could acquire an appreciation for the fleshy, easily lost and murdered run-of-the-mill horses.

Plus, Ethereal Horses have the following advantages over their counterparts:

1) Customizable
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Ethereal Horse Tuning Stone allows you to not only adjust the horse's speed (normal, medium, fast), but also gives you the option of PIMPING OUT YOUR RIDE: You can now flame on with a smokin new Fire Steed! Or cool off that crotch with a Glacial Grocery Getter! And due to popular demand, introducing the swanky new SHADOW STEED!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EXCITING NEW FEATURE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(...let's say this is in "beta" right now - see Known Issues below)

You now have the option to spawn an additional horse for your follower! This feature will DO NOTHING unless you have Spudgunner's "Better Follower Improvements" mod installed, which is available at (please remember to favorite/endorse):
- Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=13711
- Nexus: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=11193

Simply select the follower option on the Tuning Stone (you will be prompted to pick a type for that horse too), cast the spell once (both horses should appear), and hop on yours (you wont be able to ride the other). Your follower "should" mount their horse... when they feel like it. They're very reluctant... maybe they're a little nervous. I mean, a horse did just appear out of thin air.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2) Convenience
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have a horse anytime, anywhere you want. Even in your own house (assuming you're in to that kind of thing). They expire immediately after being ridden or about 30 seconds after being summoned and neglected. No more worrying about where you left your real, flea-infested horse, or what dragon it has decided to chase down and commit suicide in front of.

3) Built to last, not to fight
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If not being ridden, Ethereal Horses are ghostly, spineless cowards that will vaporize instantly upon the slightest touch from an enemy. I was always annoyed when my flesh-bag horse started tanking dragons for me, so I crafted these babies to get you from point A to point B, not help you kill point B. So, conjure a familiar or something and see how that works out for you.

The trade-off is you can now base-jump off a 3000 foot mountain top! Yes, your horse is completely invincible when being ridden. Incidentally, you are also somewhat invincible when riding an ethereal horse... But hey, if you can't fight from horseback, should you be able to die on horseback? That's my justification, and I'm stickin to it.

4) Speed
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ethereal horses walk and run faster than normal horses. They also don't run out of breath, since they technically don't have lungs.

5) Sex Appeal
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Everyone knows that <circle one: dudes | chicks> love a nice ride. What says dragonborn better than a mystical, glowing steed that you summon from thin air? It's like the horse-version of a mystical, glowing DeLorean that you summon from thin air! And there's no poop to clean up.

==========================================================================
Future Updates & Known Issues:

1) Flashier summon/banish effects (this takes a surprising amount of effort to do correctly, and I'm going for functionality over form for now).
2) I'd really like to remove the "squealing" sound effect the horse makes when falling from high places, however, that may be impossible to do on a single horse.
3) "WaterWalking" is more like "SinkSlower" - there doesn't seem to be much I can do to fix it at this time... the sinking is a little strange, though somewhat effective, so I'm leaving it for now.
4) Glitchiness/crashing issues when running/sprinting are most likely a function of Skyrim's massive outdoor areas trying to load vs your computer trying to keep up. I'm fairly certain this is why they dumbed down the default horses in the first place.
5) At some point, I'd like to adjust the Tuning Stone to work more like an Enchantment Altar, and allow players to not only select MULTIPLE special effects, but also possibly select the base horse that is summoned (i.e. you could summon Shadowmere/Frost/etc)
6) When jumping, the horse slows down. Not sure if there's much I can do about that one... maybe some sweet rocket hooves.
7) When you dismount, your follower may not dismount in time before their horse is banished. Temporary fix: point and laugh.
8) Attacking your follower's horse may have unforeseen consequences. Name-calling is acceptable.
9) Fast-traveling, or leaving your follower in the dust will cause their horse to disappear.

Hey this sounds great, exactly what I was looking for!
I had this idea myself and put it on my Mod Creation ToDo list (after learning to use the CK that is - lol) so I guess you've saved me a load of trouble :)

Thanks!

P.S. I'd be happy to share some of my ideas along these lines if you're interested?

I found the tuning stone but I can't activate it, I tried going to the mages that sell items and they didn't sell the book! Please help :(

Cool looking Horsie : D

I actually bought Skyrim back on release, but never really got into it....with the mods now though, Im totally hooked, things that were a bit annoying in vanilla are now FIXED and improved (Horse behaviour being one lol)...it also looks like the game gamw out this month, not years ago (same goes for il2 and HSFX...another amazing game improved with a brilliant modding community) : D

Thanks to the community for the work...one day hopefully they will figure out a fair way that you can get paid for all your hard work (I for one wwouldnt mind paying a few quid for some of these amazing mods...but ofc only if they are stable)

Hearthfire and DragonBorn?

Great job man love this mod.

Walks on water, scales the UNSCALEABLE, and can be summoned and dismissed nearly instantly. Plus different looks and a co-horse for my cohorts? It's the best. This has been my favorite mod since it came out, and has never failed me.
