I have a Reverse Dapple Roan Nakota, a Silver Dapple Pinto Missouri Foxtrotter, and the White Arabian. I held off on buying the Black Arabian, because I didn’t really think the price of 42 gold bars justified the minimal stat differences, plus it’s not even a true Dark Horse with that white streak down its face. I just know they’re going to add another horse down the line that will cost more in gold so I may as well continue to save.

 

The Foxtrotter hype is very real, and for good reasons. They’re definitely a dependable horse and they have a great temperment. The stats are all there too. Great health and stamina. I never really factored in health too much with my horse purchases just cause a bullet to your horses head is just the same in any case. I can confidently say I was satisfied with my purchase after acquiring one.

 

However, the White Arabian was my most recent purchase and I have no regrets. The Elite handling is nice and noticeable, I wish the Foxtrotter had that too. Yeah, a lot of people say the Arabian horses spook real easily, but it’s just a matter of playing accordingly. As long as I’m hitting that calm button, I’m not really getting bucked off. A lot of people seem to overexaggerate their experiences with these particular horses. Riding into a swamp full of alligators isn’t really necessary either, doing that alone is just asking for your horse to get pissed. One can’t get bucked off of a horse if they’re on foot in the first place during certain situations. Crazy right?

 

This is all preference of course and the right horse always comes down to the competence of the rider.

No. ditching a free horse gives you the option to get it again. Once free, always free. You will have to bond with it again, though.

The free red Arabian is not free for early players now it was only free for a period its $250 now 

I saw the Arabian listed as such when I played yesterday; the Thoroughbred is not listed at all though. I know that I can still buy another Thoroughbred, but I'm pretty sure the colour of mine is exclusive to the Ultimate Edition. I'm not going to discard it, but if I did, I'm not so sure that I would have the option to obtain an identical one in the future.

I've ditched the Thoroughbred UE by mistake once before and was able to select it again a few days later (when I realised I ditched the wrong horse) as a free horse. As far as I know, the Thoroughbred wasn't a temporary free gift. The Arabian was (and I do realise I was wrong about all 3 horses staying free).

I just recently unlocked and bought a Turkoman but I have to say I expected it to be a little more courageous. My first (UE) Thoroughbred is a pussy (to be expected I guess) and that last free war horse isnt the most courageous either in my experience.

 

Can someone who has both the Turkoman and the Fox Trotter confirm which one is more courageous? I really liked it in SP.

 

Also does the horse get “more courage” with better bonding?

It's no worries; I'm glad to hear that it reappeared as an option! ☺

 

I almost pulled the trigger and bought the Fox Trotter yesterday, but couldn't decide if I wanted to invest money in yet another and more expensive stable or discard one of my "free" horses and still end up spending close to 1700 to 1800 or so for the new horse, saddle, stirrups, etc. I know that I want it; I just have a hard time spending money these days. 😜

If only they'd allow us to pick a color for the horse, instead of the standard ones they have now. I love to have all black horses for my character, 

 

 

This! An all black horse fits my character so much better. I've got an all black American standardbred, but the stats are abysmal compared to my Turkoman. - If I could make the Turkoman all black, that would be dope!!

I love the looks of the American Standardbred, but the horse is a disaster itself. Sadly, it's the only all black horse of decent size. If only the Turkoman would come in all black, I'd be grinding my ass off to level up and get it.

I, wholeheartedly; agree. I do love the look of the AS, I have it set as my mission horse; but it's just not good enough. The Dark Bay is as close to black as we'll get, I think it's like a black/brown pearl, lol.

 

I think adding the option to change color would be beneficial, it would add much more customization to characters.

Fox Trotter is the better one, But do wait till you have full bonding with the Turk it does get better as all horses do at level 4. Unless you dont calm any horse will through you with cougars or wolfs at there back feet although the Trotter does fair best

As long as they don't go overboard with Chrome! 😂😂

But yeah, they can do soooooo much more and give the player it's own distinctive horse. We all have the same ones, like they roll out the factory this way. If they wanna stick more to reality, this is a thing to see changed for sure.

Yeah you’re right, my Turk is now on lvl 4 bonding and its way better than it was before! Its my best horse overall now. I almost felt regret for choosing it over the Fox Trotter but now things are cool.

Check out this saddle. It can only be seen in the Freeroam event "Dispatch Rider." This one comes in copper. I hope we see this one in gold later.

Someone tried ramming my character with an Arabian. Didn't work and he fell off his horse himself, but he his dot became red anyway. My character was using the Hungarian Halfbred, which is quite a bit bigger and heavier build than that pony. I don't know if that was a factor for my character not being bumped off his horse, or the bad aim from the weekend warrior. But if the size and build of the horse is a factor, that's quite cool.

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

The Missouri Fox Trotter I had in the story was fantastic. With the saddle and spurs plus running the races, he ended off with a 10 speed. It's a tad bit more skittish than the Turkoman, but not by much.

Strange one hear, Im on my second acc online and using the Red Arabian and it is definitely a lot better horse than when i first used back last December it dont whine and whinge nowhere near like it used to and is a bit more tolerant of predators than it was, Maybe R* have changed this a bit due to all the players moaning about it back then ??

Is it me or is my American Standardbred becoming less stupid with a Nagocdoches saddle on it? Since I'm using that saddle, the horse became a lot better to digest.
