I love horses and noticed, there were no wild horses on Skyrim like there were on Oblivion! So I added them. I added herds of horses big and small around Skyrim. I added stallions, mares, colts, and fillies. Yes you can ride them, but they just run away if you get off of them. I have made some wild horses that used to be domesticated and are used to humans. So you can ride those and they won't run away. :D


To make other horse mods work like Better Horses, change the load order. Set other horse mods to load AFTER Wild Horses.

If you don't know how, open Skyrim, click on Data Files, check Wild Horses, then check the other horse mods. :)

Update 6:

Wild horses finally move around! I finally figured out how to make the horses move around like normal horses would instead of standing there like statues!

Update 5:

I am currently making two seperate mods for the ponies and special horses. (nightmares, ghost horses, etc.) I have removed them from this mod in this update.

Update 4:

Hopefully made shadow horses non-aggressive.
Added a map marker for shadow horses/ponies. (you'll have to find them yourself though)

Update 3:

Removes saddles from shadow horses and ponies to make them look wild.
Makes shadow horses and ponies faster than wild horses. (Which is VERY fast)
Makes special places for shadow horses and ponies.

Update 2:

Ponies (rare!)
Shadow horses and ponies (Only four in existence) I'm not showing any pictures because they are special. :)
Added herds in Falkreath Hold

Update 1:

Added herds in The Rift
Added geldings
Added formerly domesticated horses
Added fillies
Made stallions and geldings a little bigger than mares
Sped up wild horses ALOT

Horse Genders:


(Geldings are always formerly domesticated. Stallions and Geldings are a tiny bit bigger than mares.)

Kinds of Horses:

Grey Horses
Paint Horses
Brown Horses
Black Horses
Palomino Horses

Herds added in:

Whiterun Hold
The Rift
Falkreath Hold

If you want me to add anything I would be happy to. :)


When you create a new character, the horse pulling the carriage goes crazy and starts walking into a mountain. :/ Just uncheck this mod the data files before you make a new character.

Future Plans:

Someone to do new horse textures for me
More horses

I hope some day you or someone could create unicorn mods. Make them essential so they can not die. I know and I read your Q&A. Just saying. Just as the dragons have reappeared. I will never give up hope that I may finally play a role playing game were unicorns will be in that world. Next to that I hope to see fairies or fay in the future. I guess the closest thing to that would be spriggons. I'll take what I can get for now.

One more thing, I have an idea on the wild horses. They are wild, so they run away from you. How about being able to break them. Have a quest where you go to a stable to purchase a horse, but he has very limited stock. The proprieter can the offer to hire you for the procurement of wild steeds. I've never built a mod, but I've given some good Ideas for them. The Elder Scrolls have been a part of my life for a very long time, since 1995. I'm fairly educated in the history and lore. My resources for info is pretty much unlimited. So, if you want help for script writing or character creation/info let me know. I'm glad to offer help in anyway I can. If interested, shoot me a message.

Hey, got an idea for you. Would you consider doing Imperial Horses? Horses with saddle and armor that compliments The Imperial Army. Also, a brand on those that are officially owned by the Empire. A brand of the Red Dragon Diamond,(skyrim's logo) Having The Empire's coat of arms branded on the horse would be something very unique. I think it would get some attention.

What a terrific idea!I might consider this one in the future.

I loved the wild horses in Cyrodiil. (OBLIVION) I think the reason for no wild horses in SKYRIM is because there are more predators across SKYRIM'S tundras, compared to the grassy hills of Cyrodiil. The predators in SKYRIM are also a whole lot more agressive, and a shat load harder to kill. Also you could obtain armor for your horse(s) in OBLIVION, so why not SKYRIM? You would think that horse armor would've been added. None the less, I'm still going to add this to my game.

You do realize that there were only like 2 herds in oblivion right? And the funny thing is I made a mod just like this one except it was for oblivion. :D
