♥ If you end up liking this mod then a thumbs up would be very much appreaciated ♥

Please join the Discord if you have questions or wish to speak with me:
This is where i am the most active and will be posting upcoming content and other mod updates.

This mod adds an array of horses that vary in type and strength. This is my first mod and first public release, be aware there may be bugs or complications. The mod should be compatible with other mods, as long as they do not directly alter equus primal tags or spawns.

The horses have different spawns and can be found in beaches, mountains, grasslands, redwoods and in the snow. They do not replace any creatures. If you are using a normal unmodified ark, as in you have all dinos are spawning on the map, The horses will be as rare as an equus on the island in terms of spawn amount. They are somewhat rare

As of now there are 8 horses in the mod:
Destrier - Visually based off the Friesian horse, one of the two strongest warhorses.
Siglavy - Visuals are based off my IRL horse, which was a shagya Arabian with some Lipizzan features. This is the second warhorse in the mod.
Courser - All-round good horse, can be both used for fighting and travel. Visual and mesh is based off the English Thoroughbred
Rouncey - Also an all-round good horse, with the same use as a Courser, but is based off a mix between Pint paint horses.The pattern style was chosen by the community created around the mod itself.
Kehilan - The fastest horse of them all, visually based off the Arabian horse.
Dray - The heavy lifter of the horses, visually based off the Clydesdale horse.
Garron - Back to my roots this is a horse I would grow up with, so I decided to add a horse based on the Fjord horse. Can carry more than all the others but not as much as a Dray and is comparable in versatility as the Courser and Rouncey.
Pony - Lastly, the cute companion to any horse herd. [Not the greatest swimmer]

Other additions in the mod are:
Horse Saddle - A sturdy normal horse saddle [Atlas model]
Padded Horse Saddle - Same as above but with more armor.
Two seater Horse saddle - A saddle made to fit and hold two people. [Tweaked Atlas model] - Used with Siglavys, Destriers, Coursers and Drays.

future content
- Horse carriage
- New saddles and functionalities
- New animations and horse functionality
- Several horse Mesh TLC

*Next major update ETA is March/April 2020 due to Genesis release, content updates and Wildlife release. Please join the discord for more information*
Additional info
The horses utilize modified model of the Atlas horse and its sounds on top of small additional custom sounds and animations.
It is based of the equus, so it will be compatible with other mods that adds costumes or saddles for equuses such as “Saddle Emporium” [Highly recommend using the mod]. Though be aware there may be varying clipping issues, but they should not be major as i have made some adjustments on the models itself.

Special thanks to Bongosolos, Synestra and Drocks for helping me test and support me through the modding process ♥

This mod has been made to be a required DLC for The Known World map project!

OMG i really love this Mod. but it doesn't work with the map genesis yet. at least I don't see horses, just equus. or can the horses only be found at certain points?

I just wanna say that your mods - horses, wildlife - are absolutely amazing. I'm picky and not very easily impressed at all. I run a ton of different mods and I experiment and try out even more, but usually I'm only impressed-ish. However, these mods really did so absolutely impress me and I love them to death. Never have I ever enjoyed taming or roaming around on a horse so much, never before did I ever consider actually building a barn for a collection of horses, but now I am doing all those things and I look forward to go out on my horse friend every time I log on. The animals are so well done and feel so natural that I can't even xD

So thank you, kind modder, you brought a love and excitement into the game that I did not expect I'd ever feel. All praises! ^______^
