Who would like to battle on horseback?

It seems as though the team at Bethesda has been quite busy since the release of their multi award winning game. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's first DLC (Dawnguard) has been announced, they've introduced Kinect integration and, today, right from the horses mouth, we learn of the inclusion of mounted combat. Keep reading to find what else patch 1.6 will bring.

With all of the stuff they're putting into these patches for free (mounted combat, additional combat kill-cams, Kinect integration, etc), I have to think Dawnguard will be pretty badass.
Oh, they love us American boys.

They patched that months ago. All pieces of the Thieves armor can now be found at their HQ.

This may not be completely related to this, but if you have this game on Steam you can try the patch out through beta participation. Tried it for a few minutes yesterday and it works.

So Mounted Combat was clearly in the game right from the start but was disabled until now because they couldn't get it working correctly.

That's too massive a design feature, and far too much work (especially when you consider animations), to have been added in a patch. It's something that was always meant to be in the game but is only showing up now because its only now they've got it working.
