Let's talk horses

My Turk has the best temperament, followed by Criollo.

 

I have a Breton.... he is a massive pussy. He bucked me three times around wolves....wolves.... not even my gorram Arabian bucked me around wolves!!

 

Also, he is so friggin huge, he slams into every second rock, tree, twig, signpost and the smallest dip in the terrain can topple him and send me flying.

 

Also as he is so friggin massive, 3 shotgun blasts and he'll die because he's such a massive and easy target to hit.

 

Probably the WORST horse I've ever had and it's been labelled as the Bounty Hunters best option..... nooooo.... my Criollo was better and my Turk is better than that.

I always felt the Arabians's smaller size was an advantage for both horse and rider. My head isn't sicking out over fences & bushes for easy shots. I also feel that I can fit my Arabian into spaces I can't with the larger breeds of horse, sometimes a major tactical advantage for me in mounted combat.

Let me rephrase the question. Is it displayed anywhere in game which horses are more fearless?

I haven’t seen anything. Doesn’t bonding play a role in how skittish a horse is as well?

Probably. My knowledge of these horses mainly consists of "I think this car isn't handling right".

Sooo I think I'm in the market for a War horse. I've never had any complaints about my MFT's combat behavior, he's fine to shoot from, never bucks me due to gunfire and while he does run a short distance once I dismount I always considered his getting clear of the gunfire a good thing until I started taking on multi-target bounties solo. I try to run in quick, blasting all over and hogtying targets asap but when some decide to run and I whistle for him to go chase them he usually refuses to get anywhere near the fight and I lose targets to escapes.

 

So basically l'm looking for testimonials on breeds that are willing to run into gunfire after the fight has begun. I'm leaning toward a Turkoman mainly based on aesthetics (I prefer the leaner look over the thiccness of stuff like the Ardennes, Breton etc.) but my number one priority is a mount that will reliably run into an active gunfight and pick me up.

I've always thought the same, though taller breeds have some advantages too, like better lines of fire due to the higher platform and doing better in swamps/rivers because they can touch bottom in deeper water before they need to start swimming. Fair tradeoffs on both sides imo.

There's absolutely weird stuff going on with the horses today. Yesterday my Criollo died during a gunfight. Obviously, the game switched to my next horse when I called for one. My MFT came to the rescue and took care of my transportation for the remainder of the evening. Today, after login, my MFT was still the active horse. No problem there. I went to a general store to check out the new clothing. Rode into town on my MFT, went into the store, checked the clothing and came back out, to find my dead Criollo waiting for me........ Okay...., no problem. So. I rode on on the dead Criollo (I surely didn't pay for healthcare of it). Ran into the grave robber at the graveyard in Pleasance and while I helped digging, I got alerted about a camp raid going on. Sped back to the camp and noticed I didn't have a horse.........., called it and......, my MFT came running to me. So, that got me thinking. If the game switches horses like this, how are we sure they don't also switch temperaments?

Can someone, once and for all, recommend a horse that's not a complete coward? Ive had both a Strawberry Roan and Dutch warmblood lately who buck me all the time near gators.

 

My friends Piebald Hungarian Half-bred is barely started by anything, might just get the exact same one.

I'm in the market for a new horse and I'm between a MFT and one if the top tier Kladrubers. Anyone have suggestions on which horse to choose?

I would suggest you choose simply based on which one you like the appearance of the most. They are both really solid horses and I don’t think you can definitively say one is better than the other, for any purpose. I have one MFT and one top tier Kladruber, and I love them both.

Can vouch for that exact Hungarian. Sure, Herman's bucked me a coupke of times, but I'd probably do the same if a cougar or a grizzly is coming for lunch: You don't have to be fast, just faster than the other guy.

Other than that we get along fine.

I am in the process of breaking in an Ardennes mare, for variety sake. Level 2 so far and she seems like a good lady too, but we haven't really been in trouble yet, so no final judgment there yet. So far, so good, so what.

My silver/grey Turkoman has become unusable, It was a very good horse with good temperament but now it moans all the time throws me of at the smallest boulders wont jump anything and is scared sh*tless of gunfire and predators runs that far away it dont show on radar 

 

Paid gold for this and it looks like i will be deleting it shortly its a waste of space in the stables now

Tbh my Turkoman always acted like this. Same as the MFT which is so nervous when standing, it‘s really annoying. Always wondered why everyone hyped the sh*t out of them.

All of my horses from prior to the FP update are now scared of their own shadow, 3 Turks and 2 MFT that are useless (my Gold Turk has always been sh*t and still has permanently red cores). They all moan and get panicked by my gunfire while hunting, they run away from gun fights, buck me off at basically any opportunity. The Silver Turk and Amber MFT were solid horses before.

 

I've got a rank 20 Breton, Kladruber and Criollo. The Criollo started off fine, it now runs into the next State at the first sign of being shot at, but the Breton and Kladruber are as good, if not slightly more steady, than the Silver Turk and Amber MFT we're before FP.

Do you think R* are tweaking these to tease us into buying the new horses ? I have all 3 top tier new ones anyway and both my MFT seem to be fine as does both the white and black arabians 

 

Im convinced R* play around with the settings of lots of things in the background

Something has been altered, or is continuously altered. 

 

I've always maintained that horse temperaments and personalities are random within each breed, because that's the only way I could explain how my Silver Turk had a noticeably better temperament than my Brown and Gold Turks and how my Amber MFT was noticeably more reliable than my Pinto MFT.

 

But something relating to horse temperament has to have been changed, because all 5 are now equally skittish.

 

Even out of the top tier new horses, my Criollo was equally as good as my Amber MFT once I got to bonding level 4, good enough that I actually recommended it to others, but now it runs away and will buck under gunfire. One incident where, on a bounty mission, it bucked and ran so far that it wouldn't respond to my whistling, even after everyone was dead and gunfire had stopped. It hasn't been out of the stable since.

 

I would always have ended up with a full stable anyway, but it is more than a bit frustrating that I have 6 top tier horses in my stable, that's over $5k (including insurance) and 38gb spent, that are completely useless for hunting and missions.

 

I've little doubt that with the arrival of further additions my Kladruber and Breton might be destined for the same fate.

Got to agree there. My Criolla was as yours very good early on at bonding level 4 but has gone seriously downhill as well Thankfully my Trotters. Breton and Kladruber are ok at the moment 

 

I wish R* would leave things well alone there are lots of things im sure they alter daily and it really does piss player off,  When the game plays as it should its a great game but you get a couple of good days then a fortnight of crap

 I find that rotating through all my favorite horses seems to help. About a (real time) day or so apiece. A little stable time improved almost everything about my Arabian, save for running off from gunfights, something I'm not sure he used to do before the update. Then after a bit he got stupid again, so I switched him out for the Breton, until HE got the dimwit bug, & found rocks utterly attractive & then off to my Turk, & so on & so forth.

Horse behavior is defiantly changed-Most noticeable in BH missions.

 

It does seem though, Horses are taking more fire in those types.

Up to four now, I think they're somewhere earlier in this very thread, but I had the white arabian for a couple of months now, & never ever took it out before, even to bond.

So, the horses you unlock with the roles. There are 2 horses on the picture. Is this like an upgrade for your carriage or just a new horse you can buy and ride?
