Oblivious Horses - Various Versions Collection
8 items
Another mod for Horses with one special feature unlike all others! Player owned horses will not only not attack but will be completely ignored by all hostile creatures and NPCs!

This version is not for use with Dawnguard. See my Oblivious Horses collection for other version that are.


Horses will no longer fight anything and will only run a short distance away when they are near danger. No more having your kills stolen!

Horses will no longer be attacked by anything. Fight your own battles without your mounts being killed constantly!

This mod effects all player owned horses including horses purchased at any location, Shadowmere, and Frost, but will not effect wild or stolen horses.


This mod only effects the combat AI and the friendliness of normally hostile creatures and NPCs towards player owned horses. This mod will not effect any of the horses stats or abilities. Horses can still be killed by normal means such as falling or AoE damage.

Update Notes

Version 1.0 Please report any bugs to the author.

1.1 - Fixed the issue where this mods features were not being properly applied to Frost and removed unneeded form edits.

Other Notes

No longer supported. I do not plan to purchase Hearthfire due to a personal distaste for the product and so cannot mod with the new content. This mod should still work with unexpanded Skyrim (and Dawnguard if noted as such). Sorry for any inconvenience but with this game being almost a year old I feel it's time to move on to newer modding horizons. Thank you to everyone who downloaded and enjoyed my Skyrim mods. I hope to see you all again in other mod workshops. Best wishes!

I just lost a horse because I fast traveled to some place without sitting on my horse... And it just RAN for it to attack a pack of wolves!!! I faught an ice wraith before I could come to my horse's rescue... and it died from friggin' wolf-bites!!!!!!!!!!!!! STUPID HORSE! And I get emotionally attached to my companions, being it animals or men/mer... *sigh* So I looked for a mod like yours! Thank you! :D

Perfect. There's really just no way to have a horse once you start getting into dragon encounters if you don't get a mod like this. Works exactly as intended, no problems.

THANK YOU! I never use horses purely because they're a fricken pain in the ass. Attacking things, or running off, getting in the way. JUST STAY STILL AND SHUT UP.

Very nice mod, thanks! I use a couple other horse mods, and needed to put this one last in the load order to get it to work: Gryphian's Pack Horses, Faster Horses, Oblivious Horses.

finally, I get sick of wasting 1000 gold on horses and watching them get killed by bandits.

Thank you so much! I hate it when my horse is like "Ima go suicide by running head on to this huge freaking dragon."
Also, I have Heathfire and it still works okay.

I dont know why, but this mod has the effekt, that in the not english versions of Skyrim the name for Forsworn is changed to the english one.
I hope you can fix it, because it shout not be needed vor a mod that changes horses.
