Horse Tack Fixes



jore666 pointed out to me that all saddles in the game only have a durability of 1 and asked if I can provide a fix. While i was investigating the horse tack items i noticed that more values on various items should be fixed. For example, it is not very realistic that a saddle with 4 bags is as heavy as one without bags


This mod fixes most of the horse tack items so that they are more viable. See the list below for details.

  • Weight increases in steps of 0.5 from 1.5 to 3.5
  • Adjusted conspicuousness and visibility

Head Armor

  • Weight increases in steps of 4 from 7 to 19
  • Adjusted conspicuousness and visibility
  • Changed armor type for all items (they are not bridles and therefore shouldn’t apply the courage buff)

Plain Saddles

  • Durability adjusted to 30
  • The weight increases in steps of two from 30 to 38

Hunter Saddles

  • Durability adjusted to 40
  • The weight increases in steps of two from 25 to 33

Fine Saddles

  • Durability adjusted to 50
  • The weight increases in steps of two from 20 to 28

Noble Saddles

  • Durability adjusted to 60
  • The weight increases in steps of two from 15 to 23

I will also incorporate these changes in my other mods, which provide horse tack items.


If you have installed the latest version of my other mod Smooth Riding don’t install this mod! The fix is already inlcuded.


It’s recommended to use Vortex Mod Manger with hard link deployment for installation. All mods are optimized for this purpose.

  • Save the file to your desktop or your preferred location for downloaded files.
  • Start Vortex Mod Manger and choose MODS in the menu on the left.
  • Click on the button install file.
  • Choose the downloaded Zip file when prompted.

If Vortex Mod Manger is properly configured, you have completed the installation. No further steps required.

If you need help with the mod manager visit the Nexus Mods Discord.


Unless otherwise noted, all my mods are compatible with each other as tables are patched but not overwritten.

If you use my mods in combination with older ones that completely overwrite tables, you should pay attention to the loading order. However, it is not recommended to do this!

Patched Tables

  • Data\Libs\Tables\item\pickable_item.xml
