Every time I encounter a wolf or a bandit, my horse insists on joining the fray.

I would much prefer if the horse just stayed out of it unless attacked, and/or ran away (and came back later).

Is there a way I can do this?

  • This doesn't answer the question, but if you do the dark brotherhood quest line in the mission after you kill the wife at her wedding , if you do the bonus you get the leader of the dark brotherhood's horse which is invincible so it could actually help. May 24, 2014 at 15:47

You probably want a mod like Cowardly Horses. There are many such mods on Nexus mods.

  • Thanks! For some reason my googling did not reveal anything.

  • You can also set the horse's aggression level via console. But the mod path is usually a good idea overall.
