YOU HAVE TO BUY YOURSELF A ANOTHER HORSE FOR RIDE
Hyper Jul 15 @ 5:27pm 
If you dismount your horse, will your companion do the same?

I can buy a horse for my companion, but he does not want to ride it. Please help?

I too am having the same fast travel issue with the follower's horse, does not fast travel, but will appear after I wait. Also had Player's horse do the walk back home thing, but that stopped after reloading a previous save. It is No Big Thing, but I thought Spudgunner might want to know that Ventuswift is not only one with this. That being said, this is an outstanding mod, always felt bad when the follower had to run behind.
Thanks for a great mod.

Hey just letting you know I'm really loving this mod but I'm having a few issues with it. My follower can mount/dissmount/follow normally, however the horse i bught for them constantly tries to return to the stables, it's not a big issue untili fastravel, and, then the follower horse dissapears. I will point out that I bought the horse in Solitude, and that my personal horse was Frost. Keep up the good work man, thanks for the mod.

if my horse is Shadowmere, can i buy regular horse for my follower? Will it work?

Update: i found the correct ledger and was able to buy a horse but it was no where to be found and the follower would just follow on foot. i tried teleporting follower horse but nothing came

Hello. Thanks for making the mod. i am not able to buy horses on characters that already had horses before i installed the mod. dont know if it is important that the owned horses are shadowmere and frost. i was able to buy for a character that did not have a horse, and i bought one for him from the stables. i tried reinstalling but did not help. using the ledger only gives forging option

I can't get this mod working correctly. I donlt have have better improvements installed. I can buy a horse for my follower but they will not mount the horse. The horse just follows us. I am using Argis the bullwark. I tried to unscribe and then subscribe again and still the same thing. I also tried to bill a new bill of sale and same thing happens follower will not mount horse

I have the same problem as the last three people who commented; there is no Bill of Sale anywhere, so I technically cannot buy my Follower a horse to begin with. Only for myself, as it's always been.
ChaKal~ May 7 @ 5:47pm 
didn't work here
lost_link May 4 @ 5:03pm

Hmmm. All I can say is that when I got this mod off of Steam I had wall to wall problems too. As soon as I got it off of Nexus it worked perfectly the very first time and has continued to work perfectly ever since. Go figure. I mean, there has got to be some differences between the Steam and Nexus formats that can work to the good or as a detriment either one to any mod. For example, when I get the Prince And The Pauper mod of of Steam it works perfectly. But if I get that same mod of of Nexus, it crashes my game.
Adiuvat Jan 15 @ 6:33am 
I dont like the mod anymore everytime i log in message pops up i even unsubscribed because of that but still message pops up HELP
Dickbutt Jones's Sister Jan 14 @ 3:00pm 
Pretty buggy. My follower's horse keeps running back to the stable I bought it from whenever we stop anywhere. But such a great idea to give your follower a horse.
Old gamer Jan 11 @ 11:13am 
@jcruger21. Get rid of HORSE ARMOR and get INVINCIBLE HORSES. It's what I did, and my stuff works like a miracle now.
Lumenaria Jan 10 @ 7:22am 
I gave up and am using AFK now which works perfectly.
zKrieg Jan 9 @ 12:30pm 
Sounds like a great but in the description yuo list too many bugs and work arounds.Skyrim is already buggy. I'll wait for the mod to be completed before i try it out.

My follower doesn`t want to mount his horse. I`ve got bill of sale and horses for followers dialog for my follower (Benor). My only horse is from Whiterun. Pls help :c
Electrode Jan 6 @ 5:50am 
My followers will not mount hourses. I have a few differant mods that affect followers such as Multple followers lite, and horse armor, and at present have one none vanella follower and 5 housecarls following me. everything works as far as purchaseing the hose but none of my followers will mount the horse. the only thing I have done is subscribe and then selected the file as last on my load list. do you have any sugestions on how to correct this issue.
Lumenaria Jan 1 @ 10:10am 
Hey, I'm having some issues. I have Lydia as my follower. The Ostlers don't give me the dialog to buy a follower horse, but I can get from the ledger. I have the bill of sale. I have the Horses for Followers dialog, but Lydia won't mount up! I really would like to use this mod, any suggestions?

@pigwing Happy New year!
pigwing Dec 31, 2015 @ 9:26am 
Hey Spudgunner Happy New Year!
And, please do carry on, this is a phenomenal mod, & it is modding that keeps this game fresh and fun to play for years now.
Thank You!
Spudgunner  [author] Dec 31, 2015 @ 7:04am 
@Old gamer Thanks! Comments like yours gives me the heart to carry on improving it into the New-Year.
Old gamer Dec 30, 2015 @ 4:19pm 
Yeah, mod followers like Sofia, Arissa, and Recorder come with their own horses. But, this is the best for vanilla followers like Faendal. Awesome awesome mod. High five.
Old gamer Dec 30, 2015 @ 4:07pm 
ALRIGHT!!! Went and got this off of Nexus and it is awesome. WOW!!! Now I can even tell my follower to ride point if I want to. Thanks for this awesome mod, Spudgunner. Rated up and favorited.
Spudgunner  [author] Dec 25, 2015 @ 4:23pm 
NP. If your follower is non-vanilla, modded or a special follower like Serana (Vampire) then your out of luck. Non-vanilla need to provide their own horse riding unless the creator made a master file. You can make a master from a esp plugin btw. Modded follower may clash unless my esp is last in the load order. Special follower have not been added yet because I have no way to test them yet. Same is true with the players horse. Also, if the Players horse died and your current horse was a respawned one (incl. Shadowmere), you need to use the Bill of Sale to refresh those horses so my mod will "see" them. Another thing you can try is dismiss your follower, wait 15s, then recruit again.
PRIMALUS Dec 25, 2015 @ 2:45pm 
I finally managed to get the Bill of Sale, but my follower does not ride on the horse. I followed the instructions of the bill of sale, I disabled the mods that alter the horses and followers. Friend, excuse my ignorance. What am I doing wrong?
Spudgunner  [author] Dec 24, 2015 @ 8:29am 
@PRIMALUS The Unofficial update has nothing to do with my mod. You said earlier you wanted to create your own seq file. Maybe on some setups thats what you need to do although I doubt it. Download the Creation Kit from Steam from the "Tools" section and follow the instructions I gave my last replay to you. As I already explained, the Bill of Sale only appears under books when - and only when - you buy the companions horse (not the players horse) using either the ledger or stableman's topics. If it works for me, and others it will work for you. You can also try lowing the load order of my mod in case another mod is affecting mine.
PRIMALUS Dec 23, 2015 @ 7:29pm 
It's not working for me, and I did everything, I installed a unofficial update 4.0.2 downloaded from the Nexus, but the Bill of Sale does not appear in any of the menus.I restarted the game from the beginning, but does not appear the item. It has a code for, who knows, try a spall on the Bill of Sale?
Spudgunner  [author] Dec 23, 2015 @ 4:13pm 
@PRIMALUS
One is already provided in the bsa file. Although, you can make your own if you think it helps. You'll need the creation kit (available on steam) and these instructions: Skyrim Dialogue Bug Fix
PRIMALUS Dec 22, 2015 @ 8:20pm 
How I make the archive .seq?
Spudgunner  [author] Dec 22, 2015 @ 12:53pm 
@Artie : The Bill of Sale is a book in your inventory which you get when you buy a horse for your follower. If you can't get the topic to buy a followers horse, use the Ledger (book) inside the paddocks. If your follower is a mod in itself, and not a vanilla follower, there will be problems. They need to provide their own horseriding solution. Also special followers such as vampires will not work at this time.
@Lorek Nhuvasarim : You may have a corrupted save. Make sure you have the plugin + BSA file. Or try the Nexus files. As a experiment, store your current saves, reboot & restart the game from the beginning, grab the follower bard from Riverwood, console the cash to buy your horse. See if you have a problem. Don't use the coc command to speed things along.
Iorek Nhuvasarim Dec 22, 2015 @ 9:41am 
@Artie I'm still having the same problem, using the ledger book in the stables doesnt work either. I don't understand why the guy doesn't let me buy one for the follower, trying to spawn the followers horse also fails, but my horse spawns fine. If you figure it out, let me know, for now I give up, I'm no expert modder.
Artie Dec 15, 2015 @ 8:29am 
I have been trying to get this to work for so long, but the topic"Bill of Sale" never shows up when I talk to an Ostler! Just the regular prompt "Can I buy a horse?" and then they tell me that they sold the last one to me. Maybe I have an interfering mod, but nothing I have (off the top of my head) affects horses, NPCs with the stables, or my current follower. Advice, anyone?
funny little green ghoul Dec 6, 2015 @ 6:35pm 
Is this mod compatible with "Multiple Followers Lite"?
Iorek Nhuvasarim Dec 1, 2015 @ 10:20am 
@Spudgunner Okay, excellent thank you for the advice, I'll give that a go! Just to say, my copy is in English though.
pigwing Dec 1, 2015 @ 6:28am 
FWIW
In my games (where Horses for Followers functions properly), the Horse Armour mod does not interfere with Horses for Followers
Spudgunner  [author] Dec 1, 2015 @ 4:11am 
@Iorek Nhuvasarim I can't think why the Armored Horse mod will cause a problem. Some people have problems if their game is set in another language. If there is no topics to buy your folower a horse, then try the leger book in the stable paddocks. Usually on a bale of hay or a barrel. Don't confuse it with the Theives Guild quest ledger. You will also be given a Bill of Sale (Books) which doubles as a horse utility when read.

Once your follower has a horse, The lead to city ... activates soon after you mount your own horse.
Iorek Nhuvasarim Nov 30, 2015 @ 9:46pm 
@Spudgunner I could not get this to work unfortunately, might that be because I have the armoured horses mod? But in any case, the option to purchase a horse simply didn't show up in any of the dialogue options of the stable masters. The dialogue in each follower (asking them to lead by road/off-road to a certain city) did show however.
Spudgunner  [author] Nov 27, 2015 @ 3:27pm 
@The_Only_Zac (...continued) One thing you can try (no guarantees) is Make a back up the mods esp file. 1) In the Creation Kit, tick the plugin under File>Data and make it the Active File. 2) Click OK to load data (click 'yes to all' for warnings) 3) in the object window, navagate to the horses (Actors>actor>actor>HorseRace). Locate the horses I created. They have names like <City>FollowerHorse. 4) Double click the horse and go to the AI Packages tab. 5) Doubleclick the AI package called FollowerHorseWaitInPaddock. 6) Go to the Conditions tab and double-click GetInFaction. 7) Change the faction to CurrentFollowersFaction. 8) Click OK, and ok again to get rid of the forms. (Repeat 3 to 8 for other follower horses if you wish.) 9) Then save the esp.
Spudgunner  [author] Nov 27, 2015 @ 3:13pm 
@The_Only_Zac I meant gather your current saves in a zip (to resume your real game). Then start a completely new game, new character. When you confirm the mod works, you can be sure your save file has a slight corruption. It's quite a common problem. The reason the horse goes back to the paddock is because the base horse has an ai pack that works if the statement: FollowerHorseFaction == 0 is true. This faction is added by the mod but I have no way to access it via console. (Continued...)
The_Only_Zac Nov 27, 2015 @ 1:10pm 
@Spudgunner Sorry for the delayed response. That console command to add the horse to the follower's faction works to make Erandur mount the horse when I mount mine, and makes Erandur able to lead me to cities on the horse, but when we unmount our horses, the follower horse always just walks back to the Whiterun Stables, no matter where we are. Also, the Bill of Sale continues to not work for the console-added horse. Additionally, it doesn't seem to be a save file issue because I console'd "coc riverwood" from the main menu, did the quest to get Faendal as a follower, ran to Whiterun, and the mod still behaved exactly as it did on my regular save file.
Spudgunner  [author] Nov 24, 2015 @ 6:23am 
@MacTireLass The followers horse only goes back to stables if they detect that have no followers. This means the follower count is 0. You might have another mod changing this number. Try dismissing your follower, wait a while then recruit again. Or experiment with one of the other followers, hirelings & post-quest companions. When you point to the follower's horse, what do you see? At default settings, there should be a red 'steal' hand and the words "Companion's horse".
