In the grand scheme of things it's a small request. I understand there are many more important things to address. But sometime in the future please redesign Horse saddlebags. Make them look roughly the same as Cat saddlebags. Or at least give us the option to hide them :)

GOOD

    Yes Please.

    These ugly (and lazy) saddle bags are the reason I don't use a horse mount.

    Completely agree. I don't use any of the nice horses I have in my collection due to this one issue and won't be buying that nice looking frost mare due to the ugly saddlebag art. Change the art or better yet give us the option to hide any or all of the mount upgrades.

    Seconded!

    The saddlebags on the horse are a result of laziness, just reusing an existing mesh and plonking it on without giving it further thought. The result is ugly, sloppy and not at all streamlined for the poor horse. Have your guys ever seen a saddlebag? They're flatter, closer to the horse's body and much tidier-looking, even when full.

    Cats and guars both have properly-done bags, so why not apply them to the horse as well?

    Definitely agree, at the very least give us the option not to see them.

    Or, if development would like to make an effort: Log on to Lord of the Rings Online, and see what they do with the Warsteed mount cosmetic options in that MMO.

    Oh god yes. Everything about the horses is designed as if the devs never saw a real horse in their lives. Saddlebags don't look like this!

    Even better, maybe they can let us customise the look of the mount. eg. various saddlebag designs, dyed etc.

    Would be pretty awesome to add to the game.

    Some of us actually like the large saddle bags, but agree should be some size options for accessories as not everyone likes the same thing.

    What im looking for is option to pick what "mount improvement" should show atm.

    There is better saddle for speed, saddlebags for capacity and armor for stamina but you can have visible only 2 at once. And apparently right now there is no option to pick which you want to see if you have all stats above 30

    The option to hide individually each part of your mount's visual upgrades will be coming in a future patch, subject to the will of Sheogorath. Like the Hide Helm option, you'll be able to Hide your Mount's Stamina Visual Upgrade, Speed Visual Upgrade, or Carry Capacity Upgrade. It will not change the performance of your mount, just the visual appearance, and like hide helm, your selection will be visible to other players.

    This please.

    I like LOTRO's warsteed cosmetic options and their cosmetic system in general (and cosmetic weapons/shields are coming really soon). My real money spending on LOTRO's cosmetic stuff, character and warsteed, is (barely) second only to my spending for storage.

    I haven't found anything here to spend money on yet... And I'd actually like to.

    The horse saddlebags look like a pair of old #@&% sacs draped over the horse. They don't even animate when the horse jumps. Ugly, lazy, sloppy design.

    It's good that they are going to implement an option to turn the saddlebag and other horse visuals off. But isn't it a sad day for the art department when players would rather toggle your artwork off?
