Cannot use first free horse from the start?

Recommended Posts

Eddie1506

Hi. I'm just starting with RDO on PC and I have troubles using the free horse I got from one of the starter missions. I can't get it out of the stables. From what I read online, I need a saddle, but I don't have any, and most of those are too expensive for me now (I'm level 6 ATM).

 

Is there a trick to get a free saddle (or remove the saddle from Scrawny Nag), so I can use the horse, or do I have to wait to gather some money to buy a saddle?

 

What's funny is, the horse, together with a saddle appeared when I started the first of three sheriff help missions. Once the mission was complete, I was back to Scrawny Nag.

 

Am I misunderstanding something? Thanks!

Are you talking about the starting mission where you had to steal horses for the two brothers? If so, you should have bought a saddle as part of the mission requirement. I'd contact R* support to have them fix it for you. I had the issue at one point, but the opposite: in free roam I had my horse but any missions would give me Scrawny Nag for the duration of the mission. In my case it was fixed in a patch before I could contact R* support, so that might happen for you as well if you wait instead of talking to R* directly.

Thanks. I will contact the support with the problem!

 

If anyone got the simillar issue and got it fixed, I'd love to hear the solution!

Perhaps your horse has been killed?

That would result in the scrawny nag being summoned in free roam.

 

To check, left D-pad for your menu, go to stables > owned horses. You'll see there if it needs reviving.

If so, you'll want to get horse insurance when you can afford it.

The horse is alive and it has the insurance (it was free). I just can't get it out of the stable due to no saddles, and the cheapest saddle is like $500.

Have you tried whistling from an area when you spawn into game?

 

your 1st horse online is gotten by the mission in which you steal it,,,correct.

to get horse back after logging out of RDR2 and re-joining--you just whistle and your horse comes to you( with saddle) - mine included a basic  saddle)Lumly - then you go thought the stirrup upgrades and so forth

Yep, I've tried, didn't work :/

 

When I whistle, game says I have no suitable horses I can use and Scrawny Nag appears. And I can't take the saddle off of him.

You're correct, you will need a second saddle.

Unless there's some serious PC only inflation, this isn't the case. The Stock Kneller Mother Hubbard saddle is somewhere around $40, throw on the cheapest stirrups, which are something like $20 and you'll be able to get your horse out of the stable.

Alright, thanks, I'll take a look again, maybe I missed it, somehow!

As far as I can remember, the first horse you steal and get to keep from the brothers mission, comes with a saddle. 
Then again, it's been almost a year since I've played that mission, so I could be wrong.

Your horse likely died if you get the scrawny nag. If it still appear in stable that means it is alive, so you should have the option to equip a saddle on it. You cant likely have no saddle. That's mandatory to finish the intro. Dont know which button it is on xbox or pc but Playstation it is triangle to equip a saddle so go to tack and services and do that. It can be easy to miss.

@ThatBirdCoot Believe me, I tried all that. The horse is alive and under the my owned horses list. When I go to Tack and services and try to equip a saddle, there's no saddle in sight. All I can do i purchase a new one. I still haven't got around to checking if there's a cheap saddle I could buy, if I somehow missed it.

This video shows you all the saddles that were available at launch, which are the cheaper ones.

 

They start going through saddles at around 12:55.

^ Either look at that video ALifeOfMisery posted for some help or get ready to hit up their support.

 

Sounds like a bad glitch to me the more you describe it. But seeing as so much went wrong on PC release it's not impossible you got hit with a bug. Good luck

Yeah, I'd just like to say that I don't think OP isn't able to figure something simple out or anything like that, it definitely sounds like a glitch or bug to me.

 

But, knowing how useless support can be, if I was OP, I'd bite the bullet on a cheap <$100 saddle and stirrups just so I didn't have to use the scrawny nag.

 

If they stick with the game, in a few months time they'll probably have discarded the starter horse and cheap saddle for something they like and the <$100 hit will seem like chump change.

Yeah, most definetly, allthough he should still give the support solution a try. Maybe he'll get a small refund after all. Can't ever say no to that. And since R* is more willing to just refund rather than providing a solution or some bug fixes it's worth a shot 🙄

 

To OP: if they tryna talk you into clearing cache you know you are dealing with a knobhead lol

I resolved this, for all of those wondering. I found a free saddle in the game and successfully taken the horse out of the stables.

 

It was my fault after all :/ The main issue was that free saddles are only in some of the colors, which are at the end of the list and are hard to find. I browsed through the list, and every saddle had a price. First several types of saddles were like $500, and once you get to cheaper saddles, you do have free options, but only in some colors and you'd have to scroll all the way to the end of the colors list to get to them. No wonder I didn't see tham :D
