NEXT BREED: Dutch Harness Horse.


In this mod, I will exclusively work on exotic or modern horse breeds, especially those I love. If anything is wrong let me know. I can try and make personalized horses if anyone wants to make a request, those will go to Miscellaneous. I can change the model of the horses, their height and shape, as well as create new coat patterns and textures.


My mods work as skins for the already existing horses in your game, so they will spawn as normal horses do. I usually change the Tiger Striped Bay Mustang by default, but you can change it to whatever horse you want by changing the name of the .ymt files. For example, by default you get a_c_horse_mustang_tigerstripedbay.ymt, but you want your modded horse to appear in the white arabian instead of the tiger striped bay mustang; then you have to name it a_c_horse_arabian_white.ymt.(Link to full list with Pedestrian Database to change any horse down below the Installation instructions)
Yes, you can mod your entire game and change every single vanilla horse for a modded horse from this or my other mods, it won't impact your performance and there's no limit to it, my entire horse population is changed and it's okay, have a blast and explore new breeds and coats, your NPCs will be happier too.

Download and install required mods.

Once you have properly installed Lenny's Mod Loader in your main RDR2 directory, where your .exe is (should be something like Program Files/Rockstar Games/Red Dead Redemption 2 in whatever disk you installed the game), create a folder inside "lml" folder and name it "stream", then put my .ymt and .ytd (in case there are any) files inside. If it wants you to overwrite any .ytd files already inside with the same name, do it to get the new coat pattern.

You are now ready to play, enjoy!

(You can change the name of the file to substitute any other horse if you prefer it, I used the tiger striped bay mustang by default. You can look at how to name each horse here: RDR2 Pedestrian Database. Type and search a_c_horse. You can also edit the size inside the file looking for <scale value="x"/> x being the number, and changing it to make it bigger or smaller.)


Can you teach me how to mod my own horses?
Read the sticky post.

How do I install it?
For real, there's an exclusive and detailed guide just above.

My modded horse is invisible.
This can happen with online-based coats. It means that you don't have the latest version of the game (including online) or your trainer isn't working properly. Try updating, making sure every required mod is working or trying another trainer, like Rampage.

Can you make an All-in-One Pack?
I'm well aware that many people want this, and as much as it's convenient for you, I'm sorry to say it isn't for me right now. I'm constantly adding new horses and I try to make packs with them but it would be insane to update the All-in-One constantly. This mod is growing as of now. One day you'll have your AIO, but right now the current packing situation would have to do.

Can you put x coat in x other horse?
If I have the time and that horse is on my list, then maybe. If you want it for personal use open a personal message and I'll do it for you.

Can you change this mane/tail? I don't like the colour/length?
First of all, ouch. Second, read the sticky post.
