Arkhal Horses

I've never been happy with the basic horse colours and markings in vanilla minecraft, so I made some more varied and realistic versions. This texture pack is intended to be vanilla friendly. Every base colour and marking has been changed to some degree, from slight adjustments to fully custom body textures. Tack has not been changed, and donkey and mule textures are not included.


Base Colours:
  • "brown" re-coloured to be palomino
  • "creamy" adjusted to have a dun stripe and darker legs
  • "dark brown" is now seal bay
  • "chestnut" no longer has a flaxen mane
  • "white" now has dark hooves
  • "black" is less blue and less saturated for a truer black colour
  • "grey" is now a more varied dapple grey colour
  • "black dots" redone as the splash white marking
  • "white" adjusted to fully reach to the hooves
  • "white dots" redone to look like a near-leopard appaloosa
  • "white field" redone as a more accurate tobiano

If you would like just the markings or just the base colours, simply delete the relevant png files in "assets\minecraft\textures\entity\horse" inside the resource pack folder.

Hey I found this texture pack and downloaded it, I didn’t realize that it was only for Java, all the textures on bedrock are just messed up, I’m probably not the only one who’s asked this, but if it isn’t a lot of trouble are you able to make this texture pack for bedrock, only if you want to.!

The current version is technically compatible with all versions that use the current horse model - including versions before and after the one it is currently set to (1.17). Minecraft will warn you that it may be incompatible but you can just use it anyway ^^

That said I will be updating this soon, as I try to keep it compatible with the latest minecraft version!

Ive been using this texture pack combined with optifine, and im noticing some issues with the textures. I cant seem to see the appaloosa textures. I know its an issue with optifine, do you know anything that might be causing the issue and how to resolve it?

After some testing i realized that its the shader im using (sildurs) that is causing the problem, not optifine, which is good!

I've not encountered this issue before with Sildur's. If it continues to be a problem and you are using the latest version of Sildur's, Optifine, and Minecraft, please let me know and I will look into it!
