Portable Horses

[ Français ]

Portable Horses allows for players to store their steeds in their inventory. By removing the saddle from a horse or donkey, the animal will vanish, safely stored inside the saddle itself. by clicking the saddle on the ground again, the horse will respawn ready to ride exactly as you left it.

You could even store a donkey in a saddle in a donkey in a saddle (donkey-ception?)

NOTE: This plugin requires ProtocolLib


  • Pickup/Spawn your horse anytime / anywhere just by saddling it.
  • Option to store (or drop) Horses armor, and donkey's inventory.
  • Horse details are displayed on the saddle's lore for easy identification.
  • NO DATABASE - All data is stored in the saddle. There is no database or flatfile to worry about.
  • [0.1.4] Can optionally require a special 'portable horse' saddle in order to function. Normal saddles will work as they used to.

    There are already 2 config settings designed to avoid the extra storage space. 'store-inventory' and 'store-armor' when these are set to false, the horse/donkey will drop it's inventory and/or armor before it goes into the saddle.

    I recommend adding a permissions or something in the config to disallow donkeys. People can store lots of stuff in a donkey's chest then basically compress their inventory into a saddle.

    Don't have to update to 1.7.5, many many versions: http://www.spigotmc.org/threads/arrayindexoutofboundsexception.14826/

    @metalhedd: Go

    Hello, I use this and would strongly encourage a 1.7.5 update even if a beta build isn't out. A major bug in Spigot was just resolved in the last few Spigot dev builds. Most spigot servers will be forced to update, causing a large portion of servers to be running on a 1.7.5 dev build of bukkit.

    Sorry, no plans on adding anything non-horse related.

    @Tallcraft: Go

    Sorry, I didn't realize 1.7.5 was released, I've been a little busy. I'll look into it soon, but I generally don't do official bukkit releases until there's at least a beta for the current bukkit version.
