Isabeau Bienne

Isabeau Bienne is a Breton ostler who sells Bay horses at Bay Roan Stables outside Bravil.

With her employee, Antoine Branck, in charge of tending the horses and luring potential customers inside, Isabeau primarily takes care of the business and never even leaves the stables. She gets out of bed every morning at 6am and starts the day by wandering around for two hours before unlocking the door at 8am. For the next twelve hours, the stables will be open and Isabeau will be available for a transaction at all times, even between noon and 2pm, when she is having her lunch. At 6pm, she sits down and enjoys her dinner until closing time at 8pm. Once the stables are locked up, she relaxes for two hours until 10pm, when she goes to bed. Isabeau will sell horses 24 hours a day, but the door to the stables will be locked outside the regular opening times.

She wields an iron shortsword and wears lower-class clothing, a stitched green shirt with green felt linens and clogs. She only carries a small amount of gold.

Outside the stables, Antoine will tell you to head inside if you want to do business: "If you are looking to buy a horse, go inside and talk to Isabeau." When you approach her, she will get right to the point: "This is the Bay Roan Stables. Are you interested in a horse?" If you ask her about her city of choice, she will start to advertise her own business: "You MUST have a fast horse! Travel quickly to ruined forts and caves nearby! It will pay for itself with precious time saved!" On the subject of horses, you will get the full sales speech: "We have some of the best Bay horses in Cyrodiil. They are hardier than the Chestnut and faster than the Paint horses." Should you change your mind and decline her offer, she will say: "How unfortunate. Don't be a stranger. We have a fine selection of Bay horses if you change your mind." Should you choose to accept her offer, she will point you towards Antoine with the words: "Excellent! Go out to the corral. Antione [sic] will have your new Bay saddled and ready for you." If you instead tell her that you cannot afford it she will say: "What a pity." If you ask her for a horse after purchasing one from her she will say: "We don't have any horses for sale right now. You bought our last Bay horse."


  • An additional greeting for Isabeau was recorded, but it will never be heard in-game as her stable dialogue takes precedence: "Welcome, my friend! I am Isabeau Bienne, the ostler of Bay Roan Stables. And today I can sell you such a very fine bay [sic] horse!"
