The horse is a model I created myself in Sketchup and the animation are all custom made by viewing films of horses frame by frame and moving the joints to match the movement of the horse. The coat of the horse is tintable and can take an image. The eyes, hooves and nose can take an image to change the texture. The model is not as smooth as I would have liked it to be because the one I made that was very smooth and detailed was too high poly to be animated for use in Moviestorm. This is the first of the animated animals I am creating from my own models.

This horse is animated and can gallop, walk, canter, graze and idle. The default animation is standing with just the tail moving and it is very short. The horse is also mobile. first you select the animation from the menu and then you shrink it to make the legs move faster if you wish and then you do the path to match the length of the animation. It is not easy to get rid of foot sliding but with practice you can learn how. It is probably easier especially with a rider involved, to use a green screen and have a moving background instead of having the horse and rider move. The rider will sit on the horse if you first place a chair on the horse's back and then have the puppet sit and then hide the chair.

This addon is free and royalty free for you to use in your movies however, I would like credit under my full name, Lucinda McNary.
