How do you get your horse back?


Recommended Posts

I have multiple posts across different forums trying to figure this out, so please don't delete this under the assumption that it is spam.


I apologize if this has been asked before, but I can't find anything that covers this exact instance.  I was leaving a city and was ambushed.  I was killed, and my horse was gone from there (along with everything associated with the horse, including the saddle).  The guides that I found say to go to the stables, but my horse was not there.  So, how do you get your horse back after you've been killed, especially when it is not available to bring back from the stables?  I couldn't see it anywhere on the map, either.  The only options I had left at the stables were my remaining horses. 


For the first situation where this happened, I had to revert to a backup save to get it back (lost progress because of this). 


The second time, I wasn't so lucky with safe files.  I no longer have this horse.  Do you have to wait a certain period before the horse is back at the sable, or do you actually lose the horse altogether?

In playing legitimately, dying under specific circumstances will cause permanent loss of your horse. I've never heard of anyone losing a saddle as well, though. Sounds like more of a glitch than anything else. Losing your saddled horse is just a step above losing the skins on your horse after you die. The saddle is meant to be saved in the location the horse died. Maybe it fell through the map? I mean, even if that were the case, I'd assume the saddle would be teleported back to ground coordinates.


Horse is gone? Saddle is gone, as well? You've lost the horse permanently. Just gonna have to deal with it and bond with another horse. Otherwise, fear not. Trainers are available. Just spawn a copy. You can even save it for respawning again, if you choose: https://www.nexusmods.com/reddeadredemption2/mods/233
