MyHorse let's your players have more control over their horses!

Simple, easy and lightweight.

  • Name your horse
  • Protect it from stealing & inventory theft
  • Protect it from dying (Owned horses are invulnerable)
  • Protect it from being unleashed by others
  • Simple transfer of ownership of horses (great for buying/selling!)
  • Put your horse for sale (Right-click to buy it)
  • Keep a list of your owned horses
  • Teleport to your owned horses
  • Teleport your owned horses to you
  • Option to allow putting a chest on any type of horse

Select your horse

Simply mount your horse to select it as your currently selected horse.
By default, only the owner can mount his horse.


To name your selected horse simply use the command:

 /myhorse name <horsename>

When your horse has a name, it is only ridable by you

Anti Theft

After taming your horse, the horse is "locked" and can only be used and accessed by its owner. To allow others to use your horse, use the commands:

/myhorse lock
/myhorse unlock

Come here!

After selecting your horse, you can summon it to you with the command:

/myhorse comehere

My horses?

See a list of your owned horses with the command:

/myhorse list

How cool is my horse?

Check out the info about your selected horse with the command:

/myhorse info

Goto my horse!

After seeing the list of your horses, you can goto any of them with command:

/myhorse goto <id>

Note that this command is disabled in config.yml by default

Set a new owner for your horse

After selecting your horse, you can set a new owner for it with the command:

/myhorse setowner <ownername>

Go away!

Set your selected horse free with the command:

/myhorse goaway

Sell that horse

Set your selected horse for sale with the command:

/myhorse sell <price>

Any player with the permission node can now right-click to buy the horse.
(Note that Vault is required for this feature)

Spawn a horse

Admin can spawn any type of horse with the command:

/myhorse spawn <normal|mule|undead|skeleton> <baby>

Multiple Worlds

Set the worlds you wish to enable MyHorse in the config.yml file:

  - world
  - world_nether
  - world_the_end

Damage Types

Configure the types of damage which owned horses should be protected from in the config.yml file:

  - FIRE
  - LAVA

All valid damage types and their descriptions can be found here

Permission Groups

You can set certain values for MyHorse for your groups in the config.yml file:

    HorseNameColor: WHITE
    MaximumHorses: 3
    HorseNameColor: GOLD
    MaximumHorses: 10

All valid colors can be found here

Note that MyHorse will automatically detect your permission groups and write default settings in your config.yml.


Not happy with the text of the plugin?
Just change the file /lang/english.yml to whatever you want!

Note that MyHorse auto-downloads the language file from my server at
This can be disabled by using the DownloadLanguageFile setting in the config.yml.


Put the MyHorse.jar file in your /plugins folder and you are ready to go!

    Here is a link to the updated jar. It's working on my server. Whenever an official build comes out, please switch to that.

    @cricketcricketcricket: Go

    It doesn't load on 1.9.4, so no commands would work either. I did submit a pull request on GitHub for all the updates (it's not hard to update really unless there's API changes, which I don't think this smaller update has that would break this plugin). He hasn't been online in a few days according to his Bukkit account. If he doesn't come online and compile a build in the next few days, I'm going to compile a jar myself and I'll comment a link to download it. The only changes it would have compared to 0.3.3 would be change in the version it works on and it would contain the fix for the bug that allows anyone to select any horse no matter who owns it.

    Would like to be able to ride my skeleton horses. I was able to until I placed the plugin on my server. Can this be enabled somewhere in the config? I see that I can spawn them with this plugin but mot claim or ride them.

    Hi, I wonder if I can give a player a horse that I specifically want? For example a black without him not control face?

    Hello! I'm running a 1.8 Spigot server (git-Spigot-29dbaa7-262c777; MC: 1.8; API version 1.8-R0.1-SNAPSHOT) and I get the following error when loading:

    [MyHorse] Enabling MyHorse v0.3.2

    [MyHorse v0.3.2] * Your server is not compatible with the MyHorse plugin

    [MyHorse v0.3.2] * This MyHorse plugin is only compatible with a v1_8_R2 server

    Could you release a version of this plugins for my snapshot? Your plugin seems to be the best horse plugin in here and would fit perfectly in my server.

    Thank you!
