I was browsing through the list of breeds and realized that EA hadn't made a trotter of any kind. (Ok, there were a couple that can be trained as trotters IRL but nevermind them.) I decided to create one of my favourite breeds: The Orlov Trotter.

Orlov Trotter
The Orlov Trotter (also known as Orlov; Russian: Орловский Рысак ) is a horse breed with a hereditary fast trot, noted for its outstanding speed and stamina. It is the most famous Russian horse. The Orlovs emerged as the result of crossing various European mares (primarily of English, Dutch, Mecklenburg, and Danish breeding) with Arabian stallions.
The Orlov trotters are in general taller and more robust than Standardbreds. In appearance, the Orlovs are characterized by a big head, large expressive eyes, a long and naturally arched neck set high, prominent withers and broad croup. The body is muscular. The legs are strongly built, with prominent joints and clearly defined tendons.

I present you with Tsar. My version of the Orlov Trotter.

I can't do anything about body length or height, which irritates me to no end. Still, he doesn't look bad compared to the original Orlov Trotter, called Borzoi =)

I hope you enjoy him as much as I do.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
