Get the best horse of Red Dead Redemption 2 – Types
There are different types of horses you might choose depending on the situation:
Normal horse: medium speed and resistance.
Racing horse: little resistance and maximum speed.
Elite horse: maximum resistance and medium speed. This is the best type of horse for any situation but it is also the most expensive one.
The looks, breed and specific statistics are random.
Get the best horse of Red Dead Redemption 2 – Where is it?
The most interesting are the Elite horses and you can find them in the Blackwater stable once you unblock this zone in the epilogue. If you want a good Elite horse you can find them in Saint Denis stable, available from chapter 4.
You’ll visit Saint Denis in chapter 4, even though you can go before chapter 4 if you want. The stable is located in southern part of the town, near the shore.
Is not an option until the EndGame since you can’t get to the epilogue, where you will find the best stallions RDR2 has.
You also have the War Horse, a good horse but it has a specific way to find it.
Get the best horse of Red Dead Redemption 2 – Upgrade them
You can also upgrade the horses in various ways:
Upgrade the horse bonding level to unblock advantages and new maneuvers. If you want there is a bonding tutorial.
You can buy accessories to upgrade your horses constantly. The hooded stirrups will give you +2 speed and acceleration.
Energy or resistance tonics allow you to fill your horse’s energy. However, they cost and you can buy them at the stables.
