 Getting started

  • To get started, claim a horse by taming it and giving it a saddle. Then, while riding it, use /h claim.
  • To level up your horse stats, ride for long distances for a Swiftness increase. To increase it's health, wrath, or agility, let your horse take damage.
  • To heal your horse, give them sugar, apples, carrots, golden apples, or golden carrots.
  • To view your horses stats, use /h stats
  • To protect your horse from damage when you are not riding it, use /h protect
  • When you disconnect from the server, your horse will despawn to protect it. When you join the server again, use /h summon to summon your horse again.
  • If you wish to rename your horse, use /h set name <the new name>

For Server owners:

Currently, I am planning on making most of the features in the plugin configurable, so this plugin can fit on any server. All global variables to configure the plugin can be found in the Horsedata.yml file. Here is a list of all the variables:

savetype: 2

 Savetype controls how the server will save horse data. By Default, it is set to 2, which will save all data to the horsedata.yml file. If you wish for the server to save data to an SQL database, change the savetype to 3. If after saving the data to a database you wish to return to a file, change the save type to 1.

disable_banishment: false

Disable banishment disables the banish command. This is useful if you do not users to be able to temporarily remove horses from the world. By default, this is set to false.

banish_on_disable: true

Banish on disable will banish all horses in the world when the server reloads. When this id disabled, it is useful for removing the plugin (if you ever want to) without losing the horses. By default, it is set to true

banish_on_player_quit: true

Banish on player quit controls if horses should be banished when a player leaves the server, whether it be by logging off, kick, ban, or joining another server. When this is disabled, horses are persistant to the world, allowing other players to interact or even damage the horse (Which may be good for faction servers). By default, this is set to true


As a quick overview, there are only two permissions that you need to know about:


This is the permission given to all default users. This is what allows all players to claim, summon, level up, banish, and buy horses. A list of all of it's child permissions can be found below:

-Players can use the command "/h help" 

-Players can use the command "/h me" to show all of the user's stats

-Players can use the command "/h stats" to show all of the horse's stats

-Players can use the command "/h skills" which shows the skill stats for their horse

-Players can use the command "/h claim" which claims the horse the player is riding 

-If Enable-Economy is enabled in the config.yml, players will need to buy horses in order to claim them. This command allows users to buy horses.

-Players can use the command "/h sell".

-Players can use the command "/h summon" to summon horses

-Players can use the command "/h banish" to remove horses from the world, which can be summoned using "/h summon"

-Players can use the command "/h kill", which will kill one of their horses.


This permission lets the player control the database, and gives them permission to addXP, change their horses appearance, change their name, and even protect their horse against damage. All of the child permissions can be found below:



-Allows players to use "/h protect" to protect their horse from damage.

-Allows players to use "/h unprotect" to remove the protection

-Allows players to use "/h addxp" to add xp to a specific stat

-Allows players to use "/h delxp" to remove xp from a stat

-Allows players to use "/h set"  commands 

-Allows players to use "/h set name" command to change the horse's name

-Allows players to use "/h set color" command to change the horse's color (can only be used on default horses, not donkeys, mules, llamas, or undead horses) 

-Allows players to use "/h set style" command to set the horse's style(can only be used on default horses, not donkeys, mules, llamas, or undead horses)

-Allows players to use "/h set type" command to change their horse's type (Can be set to Donkeys, Mules, Llamas, Skele, or Zombie horses)

-Allows players to use "/h breed" command to create a new horse 

-Allows players to use "/h save" command to save all horses on the server to a database

-Allows players to use "/h db" command to view the database

-Allows players to use "/h reload" to reload all the horse data.
