Hello! I think it's pretty dumb that horses can only run at top speed when you ride them. I think that when you click forward once, they should walk slowly. When you click twice, they should trot: a brisk, controllable pace. When you click three times, they canter: also known as slow gallop. Four clicks would be gallop, the horse's maximum speed
Going along with this, you should also add stamina. A horse can walk for an infinite amount of time, trot for a long time, canter for a medium time, and gallop for only a few minutes. When the horse tires, you should dismount, and they will lay down and sleep, and will wake later with full energy. The more you ride your horse, the better stamina they will have.
With this stat, add saddles. The English saddle would increase jump a little. The western saddle would slow the horse a little and add stamina. The racing saddle would boost speed and make the only gait be gallop.
I think this is needed to help us navigate tough terrain and not hurt our horse accidentally. It would also help with, say, playing games with friends.
