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.

I used to walk everywhere, as it hardly made a difference with the horses being so slow. Don't get me startet on sloooowly dismounting while being mauled by multiple sabrecats. Now I am enjoying riding and outrunning to local fauna without interferring with the immersion.
Also, I was finally able to catch up with the headless horseman

THIS MOD COMFLICTS WITH ARMORED HORSE MOD YOUR HORSE WILL NOT HAVE ARMOR.

this mod is so true to its word, it feels very nice to control and it aint overly powerful, I love this mod and I use the horse much more because of it, instead of taking the "taxi" from point a to point b, I use the horse, its much MUCH nicer.
The only gripe is the fact that the game cannot load at the speed, leading to small freezes lasting a tenth of a second at most. this is probably the reason the horses were not to fast to begin with. However I truely do love the mod, and even though it may seem overpowered on paper, (outrun anything) it is the most balanced mod ive seen yet, and its perfect, just make sure you dont use this mod on a computer that can berely run skyrim to begin with.

This mod looks cool and you have my subscription. Horses don't exactly go at ferrari speeds but they're not as slow as in vanilla Skyrim either. If horses were really that slow, I doubt the lance would've been invented :P
