Wings, Horns, and Hooves, the Ultimate Unicorn Mod

Now with Jousting!

See more here.

Wings, Horns, and Hooves, the Ultimate Unicorn Mod is a mod for Minecraft 1.8.x and 1.7.10. It puts into your game 4 new magical horse types (Unicorn, Pegasus, Nightmare, and Destrier - see below for details) and many new items, including magic wands, horseshoes, horse helms, pegasus wingtips, and more. Some of these items can be equipped to the different magical horses and give them extra magical abilities (and believe it or not, some they can use themselves)!

These magical horses are more than just your ordinary Minecraft mobs. They come with extra behaviors (just try to tame that pegasus without thinking, and see where it gets you), they have extra equipment and inventory slots, they can fight with or without their rider, and they can interbreed!

And this isn't just your simple interbreeding - these magical horses have DNA, and can pass on all or some of their traits to their children! Want a flying horse with a unicorn horn? Breed a pegasus and a unicorn! Want a huge horse with flaming hooves? Breed a destrier and a nightmare! Want a horse with ALL the traits?! Well, you can get that too! Just keep breeding... but you might want a DNA tester to make your job easier.

And if you're a master breeder, maybe you can find some of the secret mutant magical horse breeds... otherwise known as Ultimate Unicorns.

Lastly, you can create your own custom unicorn (a new colored magical horse skin with optional magic powers) that all your friends can see! Click here for more info ( Custom Horse Powers are described here.

Magical Horse Purebreeds

There are 6 magical horse purebreeds: Unicorn, Pegasus, Destrier, Nightmare, Hippocamp, and Kirin. Find out more about them at the Purebreeds page.

Common Traits

All magical horses can kick creatures when they rear, and any magical horse equipped with a helm can perform a charge attack with the 'F' key, even if that attack may not be as effective as a unicorn's charge attack.

All magical horses can wear a chest and gain extra inventory slots.

New keyboard controls are summarized here.

New Equipment Slots

There are four new equipment slots for magical horses:
  1. Horseshoes slot
  2. Self-explanatory - horsehoes, including magical ones, go here. Better horseshoes give better bonuses to kick power. Magical horseshoes like Power Horseshoes, Ice Horseshoes, and Gentling Horseshoes have extra effects.
  3. Helm slot
  4. Helms for your magical horse go here. Slotted helms open up the horn slot for magical horses that don't have a horn, and allow for more eqipment options in the horn slot for horned horses like unicorns.
  5. Horn slot
  6. This slot is for items that attach to a unicorn horn. Slotted helms open this slot even for non-horned horses.
  7. Wingtip slot
  8. This slot is only available on magical horses with wings. Magical wingtip equipment items can improve buffetting power and cause other effects.
  9. Chest slots
  10. All magical horses can be equipped with a chest, opening up extra inventory slots.

New Items

DNA Tester - The DNA Tester allows you to check a magical horse's DNA. With it, you can see if a horse you intend to breed has recessive genes or multiple values of a dominant gene you want it to pass on. It is a great help when trying to breed exotic horse types (including the mutant Ultimate Unicorns). Just hit a horse with it, and hover your mouse over the DNA Tester item. Next to its name you will see the horse's DNA.
Horseshoes - Horsehoes give your horse more kicking power, and some magical variants give your magical horse extra abilities.
Horse Helms - Horse helms help protect your horse's head, and allow him to charge your enemies. Slotted horse helms can hold items, either for decoration or for extra attack abilities. Slotted helms also do more damage, since they are fitted with an armored horn slot.
Wingtips - Wingtips improve the effectiveness of your magical horse's wing buffet attack, pushing enemies and items farther, and possibly even hurting them and throwing them into the air.

FAQ and Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble, or just have questions, read the FAQ and Troubleshooting Guide.


  1. Replies
    1. I tamed the unicorns and hippocamps by mounting them over and over. Eventually they tame and you can saddle them. The destrier I found already tame and saddled. Beware, putting them in a pen with or near vanilla mobs like cows is dangerous. When they rear they can kill the other animals and hurt each other.

  2. I was able to name a unicorn, but cannot name a pegasus. It just puts me on the horse, or puts me into the inventory screen. Help!

    1. Which version of the mod are you using (in particular, for which version of Minecraft)? I'll see if I can reproduce the issue and fix it.

  3. I'm trying to talk to the Oracle, but it doesn't answer. ??????

    1. Try typing "what is your name?" and hit enter, or the Speak button. Does anything appear in the Response box? Other things that you can type that give you responses are "oracle" and "new". Often, these will lead to other topics you can ask the oracle about.

      Let me know if it works!

  4. everytime I load minecraft I crash! please help I really want this mod!

  5. is it possible to have the fireTick gamerule off and still have the fire trails left by nightmares despawn?

    1. At the current time, no. This is probably something I can change in a future version, though. I think it is a good idea to make the fire independent from other fire types in how it works.

    2. looking forword to it hope you add it for 1.8.9 when you do add it thats the version i use

  6. I got a zebra/kirin from a pegasus/kirin and a hippocamp/kirin, and instead of the inventory saying "Magical Horse Inventory" or whatever, it says "I voted for you, Kevin"
    Easter egg? :P

  7. How do I get the extra inventory slots when you equip a magical horse with a chest? When I rightclick one with a chest, it uses up the chest, but when I press the inventory key when riding the horse there's no extra slots. I also tried putting a chest on the horn slot but it didn't work xD I would expect that the space beside the slots for equipment would open up if I equipped a chest on a magical horse!

  8. Is there any way to disable the wands?
    I have kids spamming lightning! :-(

    1. You can disable wands in the in-game config I believe

  9. If you ever think about adding any bosses you could try the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Famine, Pestilence, War, and Death.)

  10. Can you think about adding Kelpies?

    1. I want to add Kelpies, too. When I add a new poll for the next unicorn breed, they will be an option!

  11. Emm how do i get my unicorn in the game? i tried naming it what i did and its not working ;-;

    1. Restart Minecraft (if it is running now), and try again. If it doesn't work, let me know what your unicorn is named, and I'll help you figure out what's going on.

    2. Also, are you running the newest version of the mod? Versions older than 1.5.7 will not download custom unicorns. Also, the custom skins don't work on normal Minecraft horses (i.e. it needs to be a unicorn, pegasus, or a kind added by my mod).

      One quick way to test if your custom unicorn is working, without having to use a nametag, is to get very close to a unicorn in creative mode (or another mode that has cheats/commands enabled) and enter the command /ch ~ ~ ~ YourCustomHorseName

  13. Hm, I tamed a unicorn and my friend tamed a Pegasus, so I bred them, however, when the alicorn grew up, I couldn't get on it's back to tame it. I had an empty hand and it was an adult.

  14. I would like to add this mod into a sponge forge server but receiving a error crash report.

    any idea for tackling this?

    1. Thanks for sending this crash report. This is in the 1.10.2 version, correct? I'll see if I can replicate it. Is it the latest version of the mod (1.5.10)?

  15. i named a destrier brownie, and it changed color, and i can't find anything on it
