Regretfully, this mod has been abandoned. It is extremely buggy and I cannot recommend anyone install it.
However, thanks to the efforts of other mod authors, it's also no longer significant!

If you're a fan of what Better Horses has to offer, I highly recommend Alek's Convenient Horses. It does everything Better Horses does PLUS everything I had ever hoped to add to this mod including horse armour, follower support and more!

Q: I have a suggestion for your mod, would you like to hear it?
A: No. Sorry, but I am no longer updating this mod. Perhaps your suggestion would be better sent to Alek.

Q: I am experiencing a bug with your mod. Can you fix it for me?
A: No. Sorry, but I have been away from this project so long that I am unfamiliar with its workings and have no idea what could be causing you problems. The best advice I can offer is to stop using it and look for a less buggy alternative.

Q: Your mod broke my save game! What do you plan on doing about it?
A: Nothing. You chose to install this mod. If you didn't make back-ups, that's your bad. I don't believe your data is my responsibility and doubt I could do anything about corruption even if I did.

Q: Can I make and upload a translated version of your mod?
A: No. This mod has been abandoned. I would rather it wasn't spread to other languages.

Q: Why did you stop modding? Will you ever come back?
A: I stopped playing Skyrim. And I am already back, but I am working on other smaller projects and have no intention of returning to this one.

If you have any other questions, feel free to message me on the nexus forums. If I have not got back to you yet, please be patient. I don't visit here every day.



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 in the README among the links 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.
