Everyone loves horses! But sometimes, do you ever feel like some things could be improved? Do you feel like the horses’ animations and behaviors seem a bit, might I say, too blocky? Don’t you want smoother more horse-like animations? Then this is the mod for you!




Many original horse animations that looked choppy (tail swiping) have been replaced with slicker, more stylish animations while other new animations have been introduced to make the horse seem more natural! The animations are listed below:

  • Walking animation
  • Galloping animation (when you’re riding on it)
  • Take shaking animation
  • Grass eating animation
  • Head shaking animation
  • Rearing animation
  • Jumping animation






How to install:

  • Download and install Minecraft Forge.
  • Download and install AnimationAPI
  • Download the mod.
  • Go to .minecraft/mods folder.
  • Drag and drop the downloaded jar (zip) file into it.
  • If one does not exist you can create one.
  • Enjoy the mod.

Before uninstalling, follow these instructions:

A .cfg file can be found in .minecraft/config and can be opened with a text reader (notepad, etc). Inside the config, you’ll find one line that says this:


If this is true, then the game will use the modded horses. If this is false, the game will use vanilla horses. Before uninstalling, change this to false like this:


Then, run Minecraft.exe and open each world once. Now, you can uninstall the mod or update Minecraft. Remember to do this, because if you don’t, you will lose all your horses.
