Let's talk horses

I only bought the Red Arabian since months, and i want to take advantage of the discount, but i really don't know what horse is  it worth it, i hear the Missouri Fox is really good, but also others told me the Turkeman is better,  btw my personal favorite is the Kladruber Cremello because it looks so close to Buell, but i think his stats are not very good, some advice?

My Turkoman is one of my favorite horses, I have the bay and at lvl four bonding he has full health stats and his other stats are nearly full. He has great speed off the gate even better with the right saddle, but he's a fiery type of horse so you have to learn his behaviors and react accordingly to that. Personally I've never had a big problem with him, he'll fight thorough gunfire for sure, no problem taking jumps or traveling through the trees, but if there's a cougar in the area he'll throw you off to save himself. I cannot say what the Trotter has for stats as I've never bought one, but in story mode they were decent animals. But there are many players who ride the silver dapple paint, so it must be a decent horse and all.

The Kladrubers are nice horses, I have the Cremello too and despite her lack of speed, even with a good saddle, she is a sound horse to ride. Kind of takes her a while to calm after she is spooked but that's alright with me. They are tough but not meant to be fast long winded ride, though if you want a sturdy pleasure horse they are perfect for that. My daughter has both the grey and the dapple rose Kladruber and she loves them so it depends on the type of horse you are looking for.

Any of the horses are actually fine it really comes down to what coat you want. The slow horses aren’t really that much slower in my opinion and once you put a decent saddle and stirrups on it the horse stats almost don’t even matter.

The time difference between an unequipped Morgan and a fully equipped Arabian, riding from Valentine to Saint Denis, is 20 seconds.

So even saddle and stirrups don't matter, just pick what looks nice.

The health stat is the most important in my opinion. However, the game's UI isn't really a trustworthy source of information and I don't think I've seen a comprehensive test of how much damage different horses can really take.

I currently have an empty stall, and discounts on a few horses. So I've been debating buying either a Tiger Striped Bay Mustang, or a Breton.

I'm so sad. Just bought the Norfolk and I have been loving it but I got the tricolor because the dappled buckskin looked terrible in the stable view. After some youtube vids I realized that it is actually a beautiful coat and would have fit my character much better. Oh well, just a heads up to anyone looking. The buckskin is not nearly as bad as it looks in the stable. I'm not insanely rich so I will not be buying 2 of the same horse and I'll love my tricolor regardless. 

Yup, folded and bought both since they had the discount last week. Roadsters are my favorite right now so why not. Don't regret it at all, 2 beautiful horses.

So I discarded my Roan pinto roadster Bedlam last night for this chunky little Breton stallion, I couldn't resist the $285 for him. His name is Epitaph because he so reminds me of the kind of cart horse an old poor undertaker would have, and his color is like some of the old gravestones I have seen in the pioneer cemeteries I've explored. He's a little snorty guy, always gotta make some noise but he's been a good animal so far cause he's fast and his stamina is pretty decent.

I bought a Shire, the most beautiful horse in the game, as soon as I learned that only saddles and stirrups matter in terms of horse speed and stamina. Put a Naco saddle on it and waiting to get to 54 lvl to get the hooded stirrups for the ultimate DRIFTYBOI mode

When my main horse A dies and I whistle, horse B comes in. It's listed before horse C in the stables. But I'd rather see horse C come when A is dead, but I can't find a way to change their order. Is it possible to do somehow?

I know it's an old post but did you ever find a reliable way to change the stable order? I have 10 horses and it's driving me crazy right now

I'm at the point that the only thing I need from my horse is that it NOT dump me on the ground in front of a cougar or grizzly.  My Dun Criollo is pretty good, but even SHE will suddenly STOP and refuse to move when a predator approaches.  Kind of odd, you would think the horse would be inclined to KEEP MOVING... but no.

^^ Yeah, I'm tired of buying "better" horses, only to have them do the same crappy things. Just more R* money sponging.

 

Am sticking with my Black Arabian "Night Mare".

Well... just discarded my Kladruber.  I weary of it constantly running up vertical cliffs, turning left when I press to turn right, thereby tripping over a fence at the edge of a cliff, throwing BOTH of us to our doom, stalling when a predator appears, then running into trees, vertical cliffs and so on.  I'll stick with the Criollo for now.

Never go cinematic with those Klads, my daughter's gray one will literally run up every incline that he can. He thinks he's a mountain goat or something?

Sadly, no. I've made a suggestion through their web form once, but alas.

Out of sheer boredom I decided I would try out the rest of the horses I had never owned before (either in SP or RDO). There aren’t many I have never had at some point, so I figured I would go through them all. I only had one stable slot open, so I figured I would start with the ones I would be least likely to want to keep, with the intention of discarding them after trying them out and getting the next one. I started with a Shire. I always liked the look of them, but the low stats and “heavy” handling always kept me from getting one (I traded the SP one in ASAP). Well, project over! I love the Shire and I’m keeping him, lol. The “heavy” handling is not that much different than “standard”. And though he does feel slower when riding, he is still plenty fast for what I need. He is a beast, but very calm and quiet. Great temperament and a pleasure to ride. Have not faced bears or cougars with him yet, but he has no issues with wolves or gun fights. He is now in my permanent rotation! Now I need more stable slots to try the rest 😀

First Horse I bought and I regret nothing, I have ridden him since say one and he has never done me wrong. I bought a female Horse because of its blue eyes and recently I bought a Breton because the markings reminded me of my dog. My Shire is still my main man.

I'm riding a Mustang right now, and I'm quite impressed.  He's faced down 2 cougars (not quite at once) and 3 wolves for an extended period with no complaints.

How does the Gypsy Cob hold up to other horses?

Currently riding a Norfolk Roadster. She's a tough girl!

I've got one of the rank 20 Cobs at level 4 bonding. It's a decent enough horse, not had any problems with it being skittish, and I've been hunting for 3* Grizzlies.

 

E: Thinking about it the Cob feels very much like the Breton I have, although less skittish.

 

I'll probably go back to my Roadster though.
