If you've been watching this space, you've probably already realized that this mod has become derelict. Each of my other mods has suffered the same. However, it is with great excitement that I announce my intent to return!

As you read this, I am working on re-writing my most successful Skyrim plugins, both refreshing the old stuff and implementing some new! I have many ideas in mind but have not forgotten that much of what ended up in my mods started out as your requests and suggestions. Although I will not be able to return the many PMs that I have received while away, my inbox is open and welcoming once again. If you have any requests or suggestions regarding content that you would like to see in my mods upon their re-release, please contact me via PM or E-mail. Credit will be given should anything you contribute make it into the final pieces.

A special thank-you to those who have encouraged my return.


Better Horses is an overhaul plugin for the horses of Skyrim, inclusive of features such as
saddle storage, whistle commands and trampling as well as many configurable stat tweaks.

Better horses aims to make Skyrim's horses how they always should have been, useful, while
leaving as many changes as possible down to the individual player's preference.

Before you begin using this plugin, you should read up on each of the included features and
get your head around what, exactly, Better Horses will be changing in your game. Full
documentation on these features can be found below or in the in-game manual, "How To Train
Your Horse", which can be found lying around at any of the major stables in Skyrim.

This is hands down my favourite mod in the game. If you practice the "no fast travel" alternative to travelling around (which creates a much more immersive experience in my view), this mod is for you!!! Fantastic job.

This needs to be fixed soon. Realized too late that because it's abandoned it messes with your save file and for me that includes a sudden bout of CTDs minutes after getting on my horse. It's nice but until its updated/fixed/whatever, I'd say its a waste installing this.

This mod is killed my save. Don't use this. If you're using the BOSS, you can check this.

I can carry more than a 1.400 load of material with various backpacks and pouches, but my horse can only carry 100? That doesn't seem right? Please make the amount of carryring capacity of the horses at least 1.500 to 2.000. That would be more realistic.

Shadowmere is still stuck to me like glue if I run around without riding him. Makes it dificult to do things since he get in the way.
