About this mod

Improves Shadowmere from the Dark Brotherhood. New improved eyes, all black skin and custom saddle.

Permissions and credits
Archet's Dark Brotherhood - Improved Shadowmere

This mod replaces the textures for the horse Shadowmere from the Dark Brotherhood.

There is no reason why this iconic horse should be brown with insane eyes. This mod will fix that.

No plugins, this is strictly a texture replacement pack



  • New improved glowing eye texture. (Optional no-glow version available)
  • New all black skin with the Dark Brotherhood hand symbol branded on the back
  • All new saddle. (Available in Red and Gray highlights)
  • Optional version available without the Dark Brotherhood hand symbol

Copy the Meshes and Textures folder into your Skyrim/Data folder. (Remember to backup before overwriting). I would highly recommend using Mod Organizer or Nexus Mod Manager instead.

Should be compatible with pretty much everything that doesn't alter the Shadowmere textures and meshes


I would very much like to thank maximluppov and 92DemonKing for the inspiration to make this mod. They have similar mods available for Classic and you should definitely check them out below:
