My female characters sometimes get "man voice" when spurring their horses!

I might be going crazy, but my female characters seem to experience sudden voice drops when they are attempting to make their horses go faster. It's both funny and disturbing.

    My character doesn't always whistle when he summons the horse either. Sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't.
    If I wanted a Signature I would have a Signature --- but i don't want one so I don't have one.

    I thought I was the only one having this trouble. My female Khajiit's voice turns into the male's voice sometimes when she yells to get the horse to sprint.

    My male Imperial sounds like a chick on his horse. Definitely not on the priority list for fixes but maybe someday :P

    I can't comment on your mental health but my female characters show the same infrequent hormonal imbalance ...

    In my experience, yelling "graaaaah" at a horse to get it to move faster (whether the pitch is high or low) only tends to happen in movies or other fictional settings. I used to ride horses frequently and don't recall making any such noises, in fact one nervous horse I used to ride would have probably been quite disturbed by any similar vocal outbursts.

    Yeah, but I bet you never had to get those horses to move faster OR ELSE THE SIEGE OF ALESSIA WILL FAIL, right? Big diff. ;)

    I think you are mistaking a horse for a motor-vehicle - if you "graaaah" at some horses you'll not make it to the siege at all, just end up looking like a war casualty because the horse startled and you ended up getting trampled and kicked in the head or something. The horses in ESO have a reliability that is not shared by many of their IRL counterparts!!!

    Well, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one. Maybe it's just that one of the character voices that you can pick from is out of sync.

    Perhaps the voice changes help the horse perform better in some way?

    I make sounds like "Graaaahhh", "Giddyup" and "You %^&*$%£ dumb %£$&!!!" while driving all the time, especially when I am late collecting the twins from my mothers, which I can tell you is far more adrenaline inducing than charging to any siege.
