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!

    It seems to be related to the permission manager you are running.
    Are you running without a permission manager or one that is not supported by the plugin?

    Do you think you could hook into a plugin like this one?

    Sure, I'd love to include my server IP here. But it's under construction, and I wouldn't want to get sued for players wandering inside and getting hit by a random beam of steel floating about. And no, I doubt plugins would make very good lawyers either. I've never seen a plugin that forced you to sign a contract do so well.

    Any chance you'd be willing to put this project on github so that others can help fix issues when they arise?

    That issue should fixed in version 0.1.8 which is currently awaiting bukkit approval.

    I'm receiving an NPE when using /mh claim

    Here is the error from console:


    I hope this helps. This plugin stands as the only offering the features I'm looking for! (Players selling/buying horses from other players.)

    • Default config as substantiated by the plugin at launch. Ver, 0.1.7

    This is a great idea. I'm running into massive problems though.

    When I use /mh comehere, a newly generated horse comes and replaces the old one, still tamed but has no equipment on and sometimes a new name or just null.

    Once you fix that, it'll be a great plugin.
