I can understand being upset with such an obvious statement but that is as close of an answer from Zos as you will get and their still not going to update old mounts, outside of what I already stated.
Sorry to bring such bad news.
Zos changes the skin then sells them in the crown store. There not going to do it for mounts er already have.
I’d buy a whole cavalry of reskinned horses to get flashy new armor if only they’d go back to the sturdy warhorse model and stop releasing these skinny freaks. The Silver Dawn horse looks too crippled to carry its own armor let alone a rider.
That would be my take on the question as well.Mounts need complete overhaul. Saddles dyes, option to change style of saddle and upgrades, etc.
We have classic saddle style, atronach style and psijic style right now. Some mounts have unique.
Option to customize all of them would be nice.
The saddle bags no longer look like goiters and the saddles are much more realistic. I'm not sure I like the style of the new facial mask, but the modeling is definitely superior. The only thing about the new tack I'm not fond of is the straps on the legs. I wish they had just modeled a better version of the barding from the old tack. The bums look a little sparse for decoration now.
