Faster Vanilla Horses

Description
Like many, I found Skyrim's horses to be unrealistically and unreasonably slow. Travel by horse was hardly faster than by foot, making it unrewarding.

Horse speed and gallop-time has been given a significant -yet balanced- boost, for a more realistic (and fun!) experience. You'll find yourself riding more often, fast travelling less, and overall feeling like the mounts are more enjoyable and worthwhile.

No known bugs at this time.

Enjoy!

---------------------------------------------
02/08/2012 - Updated to Version 1.1:

After user feedback, and many hours of tweaking and playtesting, horse speed has been ever-so-slightly reduced to be a clean 30% faster than default. It feels really natural and balanced, without sacrificing the fun or feeling that you're moving at a full gallop. While speed has seen a reduction, your horse's stamina (gallop time) has been slightly extended. Like a real horse, yours wont need to take a breather every few seconds. As always, your feedback and suggestions are welcome; Please feel free to e-mail me at ByJovMods@gmail.com

Change log:
-Horse 'Run' and 'Sprint' speeds reduced to +30%
-Turning speeds restored to normal due to the Intro's horse trip becoming slightly quicker, causing a minor timing mismatch in the dialogue.
-Horse stamina increased.

This mod hilariously broke my game intro. 10/10 would recommend trying once.

horses back then were faster and stronger and youd think they would be really strong in skyrim but nope but this mod fixes this

Yup, it's best to not have any mods running in the intro, especially this one.

Awesome mod. It's not overpowered and it adds a much needed boost to the ridiculously slow horses. I could stealth and do a silent roll the whole way and get there faster before. Not anymore!

Finally turning into a werewolf/vamp lord is not my primary method of travel (which is why i am always one or the other since travel in skyrim is grueling......)

This mod is amazing, but there is a problem, due to the horses running too fast, the game most likelly will cause problems spawning enemies, or showing npcs, and cause the map not to remove the lod mode of objects and building if you are running in the same direction for long.

Aye, the horses now are running "realistic" faster, thxs.
