Convenient Horses seems to have an issue with too many prompts. I'm going to try Simple Horse as a replacement. [2021-06-22] That fixed it! Like 'Simple Horse SE' much better.
67

There is one texture bug related to CBBE (I think) which appears on occasion. I'm working out how to address that. For now, if you strip the offending lady naked, it fixes it. (Not even joking, haha!) / [2021-06-22] Fixed / [2021-07-10] Replaced old CBBE link above (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/2666) with the SE one for better compatibility.

Coins of Tamriel appears to introduce a $ sign in front of several text menus. This doesn't bug me a lot, but if it does for you; find another coin mod. There are several options.
