This mod adds various saddle upgrades to improve the abilities of your horses, as well as some minor subtle tweaks aiming to reduce horse frustration. Upgrades can be applied to saddles by crafting a saddle along with the appropriate items (check JEI).


Info for SevTech users: The upgraded saddle recipes get removed by CraftTweaker (along with the normal saddle recipe) right now. You can enable some of them in the config to work without the upgrade though (or just grab the items from creative mode). There is also a CraftTweaker script by wooby_6 that will fix the recipes in SevTech. Download the file and place it into the scripts folder.




  • Swimming Saddle
    Allows horses to swim - this means you will not get dismounted when entering water on a horse, however, they do get quite slow while in water!
  • Leafwalker Saddle
    Allows horses to walk through leaves - very useful for passing through dense forests! At the same time it's still possible to walk on top of leaves as normally.
  • Frostwalker Saddle
    Enables the frost walker effect for horses. This means you can quickly ride on top of water as it turns into ice below your horse's feet.
  • Firewalker Saddle
    Take your horse to a stroll through the Nether with no worries over a burnt tail! Horses will create crumbling magma blocks below them as they walk across lava and be immune to fire.
  • Jump Assist Saddle
    Removes the charge-up bar for jumping and makes all jumps be at full strength by default.
  • Thorns Saddle
    Enables the thorns effect for horses. Enemies attacking the horse directly will get pricked by its deadly butt cacti, and incoming damage will be halved.
  • Feather Fall Saddle
    Enables the feather fall effect for horses. This negates the fall damage for both the horse and the rider.


  • Leads return to your inventory instead of dropping to the ground
  • Right-clicking a horse with armor or a saddle will apply it directly, instead of opening the inventory
  • Unmounting a tamed horse will set its home position, preventing it from wandering off too far from where you've left it
  • Saddles with upgrades will have durability that gets used up as the abilities are used. This can be configured.

This mod was developed for ModJam 2018.1.
