    Go to Plugins -> Horses -> Scroll down. You can change the speed, jumpstrength, etc.

    Just save it and there you go.

    I just downloaded the plugin it's great everything works fine adn everything. but I have a major issue, I'm currently using the plugin on a cauldron server for 1.7.10 the problem I'm having is that I haven't quite setup my economy system, how do I regulate how mutch I wan't the horses to cost, and what plugin is recomended when buying horses (economy plugin) I have vault but how do I proceed from there, how can the players see there currency

    Best Regards, Beefchicken

    Move to Zhorse.

    Active Dev pretty much same features.

    This is Dead as far as Im consirned. The developer does not have time to even know what has happend to bukkit etc. Also Zhores is on Spigot and Bukkit. I suggest the move to it for any Horse user. Good luck and happy modding!

    Thanks for the work on this plugin while it lasted.

    I believe us over at Spigot are now on 1.8.4. I think I will have to say good bye to this plugin.

    I hope you do good with the support I sent. An fairwell Horses!

    @TNTUP: Go

    I know it "works" if by doing /h s is supposed to spam your console. I get what you mean but I don't call that working. An yes I know you can just pull that warning out of the code and recompile it. I just want a working version not a will work for now version. :)
