I was tired of not being able to find a good horse online so I made this. It's fully rigged. I have included Walk, Trot, Canter, and Gallop animations. I used the NLA to show how this can be combined for the horse to walk a path. It has particle hair for fur, mane, and tail as well as hair dynamics. And 4 materials that will generate random horse patterns everytime. Includes saddle, reins, bridle, and all. This is fully ready to go. Just plug and play. Free to use. No need to credit me, etc. I don't really care. Enjoy.

    The body doesn't move right. Look from the top and the rear should be moving from side to side counter to the front. Otherwise the leg movement and head are fine.

    @fdoss001 You are legendary! Thank you very much for sharing this model! When working for clients I have very few chances to properly credit you :/ ...but on something personal, you shall be credited every time I use this horse! :D

    It looks really awesome, but how do I switch between the available gaits?

    Try using the NLA to switch between available actions

    thank you for your amazing work! I hope to understand topology like you do and nodes. Animation not bad either. I am using it in scene spooky ride in theme park, needed a horse walking with glowing red eyes. Made it transparent and blue purple lighting for a ghostly effect. I normally make all my stuff but a horse! I thought I need someone else! I will give credit! But seriously I think Blender Market would take someone like you in a second! You need a portfolio but people charge a pretty good price for stuff like this.

    A nice approach for keep the saddle in place while taking the body deformation into account. Nice. Thank you.
