Let's talk horses

Recommended Posts

HockeyMike24

Anyone purchase any horses yet? I'm curious about the benefits of the non free horses we get with various editions of the game. I'm currently weighing my options as I would like a new horse soon to stand out from the rest. Any tips would be appreciated

Not yet, the free Arabian on PS4 basically gives you no reason till the 50 ranks when better options start to unlock. I've been tempted to get a proper war horse but the speed/stamina of even the free Arabian is too good to pass up at the moment.

I'm riding the free Arabian. I called it Snotrocket, because that's basically what it is. It goes real fast and then splatters all over a rock.

Granted, I tend to go off road a lot.

 

If I may just hijack this topic for a bit, so I don't have to clutter the place up with another post: What about selling horses? I tried a stolen horse, but no go there. Just broke a wild horse and that didn't take either.

So the game is gonna have none of that?

About Horses...

My bonding lvl keeps resetting at random moments, over and over again.

Sumtimes when im at lvl4 but also at lvl3 sumtimes, this is getting very annoying.

Anyone else got this bug ?

Yeah im lovin this horse, i also like the Mustang breed war/work is a very good combo, had one for a long time in SP (broke a wild one early, the white one cause i didnt like the brown colored ) untill i bought the black arabian very late in the game, after the epilogue i bought the best Arabian Horse ( Rose Grey Bay )

I can't see myself buying another horse, the Thoroughbred from the ultimate edition has the same specs as the high dollar brindle thoroughbred and that one served me well all through single player. I was worried that a thoroughbred might be easily killed by other players but so far all of his deaths have either been his fault or mine.

It's a bug. I've had my horse go to bonding level 1, a total of three times in one session.

 

Also, one time my horse spontaneously changed gender and had testicles. She's a mare named Ebony... So that was a weird bug.

 

As far as horses go, I'm grinding for level 36 so I can get the Andalusian War Horse. Good health and stamina with a good temperament.

 

While the UE thoroughbred is nice for speed, it's very stroppy when in combat, hunting or going long distance. So I'd like the Andalusian for combat/missions. I'd also like to get a Dutch Warmblood, but the rare coat as it'd be good for long distance rides and hunting.

 

I don't like the Arabians, even in SP I wanted to turn mine into dog food and glue. The turkman was great for racing, but too excitable.

Are you sure that's what it identifies as?

 I like the Arabian horse because it turns fast and control is very good, i dont mind to put some effort in it to keep him (yes its a he) under me when he's gettin skittish, it keeps me on my toes as well hahah

Also its fast (acceleration) and i really like the colors (chestnut)

In real life i'm a quarter horse person, strong legs and neck, easy going and not frightened easily ( a bit like the Mustang ingame )  ;)

Got the UE Thoroughbred. It's one of the fastest, if not the fastest thing in the game. It can get rattled, but not as easily as the Arabian. I won't be buying anything else for awhile. Not until I can get a Turkoman, anyway...

I bought the black American Standardbred for £130. It was just solely for looks initially but she's a beast. Big horse but never been caught by pursuing posses (of which there have been dozens and dozens) or anyone in a mission and she can land some pretty high jumps. Definitely earned a permanent place in stables

Re: selling horses. I remember Clive saying something about bringing horses his way once he was set up. So maybe its coming later, or it unlocks at a higher level?

How does that work exactly? You have, like, three regular limbs and one horse leg?

Exactly. That's what he says before he shoves you off into the stable to get your horse insured. The cutscene and that which followed heavily suggested we we're going to be handing in horses like they were blue sentinels.

Based purely on the speed/stamina/health stats, Turkoman seems to be the best balanced choice overall. I'm not sure if any other factors play into this.

Turkoman is constantly stroppy is the trade off. A good race horse, if you spam 'calm horse' but for overall use it can be annoying. 

 

'Oh look, wolves!'

Got myself an American Paint as soon as I unlocked it. The free Arabian is a b*tch and gets scared too easily by anything.

 

Also, EVERYONE has it so I wanted something different.

1899, not 1699. No pounds sterling in the US then, only the good ol’ bastard lovechild of the Spanish Real and Dutch Daalder

Thank for laugh 😂

 

I'm torn between black arabian and that foxtrotter something horse. I prefer very fast speed and high stamina, so... but black arabian is unique. Not many have

one of the first missions you have to go steal a horse wich is then given to ou for free right, well, in that conversation the davies guy tells you, you'll be able to sell STOLEN horses to him WHEN they get the stable all set up.

 

so there might be another dlc that ads this,to continue the storyline

What options do we have online to improve the stats of the horse? In singleplayer we could add different types of equipment to make it faster and better stamina or whatever,  haven't seen the same options online but last night I saw someone with more regular horse with almost the same stats as my Arabian horse. Is that because if max bonding level?
