Riften Stables is a stable in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The Riften stable offers a dapple-grey-colored horse. Upon taking care of Shadr's debt to Sapphire, or by defeating Hofgrir Horse-Crusher in a brawl, the stable's horses can be ridden freely by the Dragonborn, but they will return to the Riften stables upon dismounting.
