HorseTools! A simple plugin that allows you to lock your horses to you so no one can take them! And if you have Essentials, you may use Essentials warps while riding a horse!

HorseTools is simple and easy to use. You can lock your horses, and so can your users. They can also use their horses on Essentials Warps too! The plugin is simple to set up, just put in the plugins folder and it's good to go! No config required, but you can configure what you like! If you want it to be configurable, but it isn't, drop a comment or file a ticket and I'll make it so you can configure it!

Current Version: v7

    I've been on a hiatus for a long time...

    I plan to add UUID support, and begin to go through some of the bugs and feature requests to fix everything.

    Works great but any way to take the warping with the horse a bit further to all essentials warp/teleport commands? Such as /home or /spawn or the /tp and /tpa? That would be amazing c:

    @rnoa: Go

    It is working perfectly with 1.7.2 snapshots.

    Does this still work with 1.7.2?

    Hey, I think the protection is not very good at all :/ It prevents the horse beeing hitted by another player, but bow+arrow are a very deadly combination for the protected horses :S

    Does this protect the horses armour?

    People cannot kill horses unless they're OP...
    Even non locked wild horses are not kill-able. I believe this plugin causes it. Fix?

    In config i change true & false the protection (prevent dmg if locked)
    If its true (to prevent damage in locked horses) you cannot kill any horses but if its false (to allow damage in locked horses) all horses are able to die again...
    There is bug in the plugin which needs to b fixed please
    Also the projectiles are able to kill horses no matter wat
