When I'm scaling steep corners of mountains with my horse, it becomes sometimes inevitable to take a fatal leap, even when I steer backwards using the "back" key.

Is there a way to rear my horse, so I can "undo" the distance from the point of no return back to safety?

I am playing on the PC.


When pressing the jump button while standing (i.e. without moving), the horse will "rear up", and back off a bit. If you do it a couple of times, you will have enough room to make your turn safely.

  • No problem, before finding it I also had a lot of moments of standing on the edge of a cliff and realizing: "Oh, well... I'm dead. Sucks. :/". I understand your pain. Feb 11 '12 at 15:07
  • Yes, the spacebar on the PC. Edited my post accordingly.

  • Well, horses have the same behavior on pc and consoles, so... should work the same on both? How is your horse dying if you are standing still? Feb 11 '12 at 21:58
