IMPORTANT: Spigot Builds > #1521 currently have a bug which corrupts PortableHorses! Do *NOT* Use this plugin with spigot > build #1521

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.
  • Can optionally require a special 'portable horse' saddle in order to function. Normal saddles will work as they used to.

    My reloaded version of this is now available. It's 100% original, that is it doesn't use 1 single piece of code from the original plugin, while still maintaining the same functionality and adding more features. You can find it on MC-Market. I am not allowed to post links here, but you'll easily find it after a google search with this: "PortableHorses-Reloaded McMarket"

    To all those looking for an updated version of this, heads-up! I'll soon release a new plugin based on this, version independent, that will be available for download on the spigotmc website as a premium plugin. It wil be based on this, however it won't use any of it's code and will also add many new togglable features. It will most likely be available for 5$.

    I am not sure how long ago this happened, but the replacement plugin: Horsestore appears to no longer be in development and actually deleted from the website.

    We are in dire need of an updated version of this.

    Just came back today to check if there has been any progress. Is someone working on a fork of this plugin or are you working on updating this?

    The only other plugin that does this is "premium" and is very clearly half assed. We could really use this plugin once again.

    Also, are there any plans on porting this over to sponge?

    @thinkofdeath: Go

    that definitely wasn't the case in the past. the whole reason this plugin used ProtocolLib was because both nbt data was being wiped by the server as well as the client during creative mod e. do you have a link to the relevant changes or some discussion about it?
