Best horse in Red Dead Redemption 2: how to find itThe best horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 is what many players want to see. When choosing a personal horse, some aspects should be considered, such as the strengths of the different horse classes. Some are more agile, while others are more robust. In each horse class, you have other horse breeds available to suit your preferences.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Best horse by class
In Red Dead Redemption 2, the best horse is clearly dependent on personal play style. Not for nothing Rockstar Games provides 19 breeds of horses in the Wild West, which emphasize their own preferences in riding.
Riding horses: The classic standard horses of the game. Riding horses are quite average in terms of stats, but easy to tame and reliable. Well suited for riding horses, especially for short trips through safe territory without incidents. Draft horses: draft horses are the strongest and most obedient horses in Red Dead Redemption 2. Since they are bred specifically as draft animals, they are not fast or agile. Their high health, size and muscularity make them ideal for difficult terrain or as a pack animal. Working horses: Working horses are similar to draft horses in terms of poor acceleration. They are not as powerful as their bigger relatives, but they are faster and more agile. They are used to herd cattle and can also be used to chase NPCs, as they have great stamina. War horses: You should choose a warhorse if you are often involved in gunfights or other confrontations. Although they are quite slow, they are robust, very healthy and have a good agility. How to quickly turn to your opponent without being thrown from your horse. Race horsesRace horses are the epitome of speed over short distances. Agile and fast, they can only go short distances at full speed, but they can accelerate again all the better for it. They are usually more skittish. Not as healthy as other horses. Versatile horsesThese horse breeds combine aspects of different classes. The Missouri Foxtrot, for example, is a race and work horse, while the classic mustang can be used as a work or war horse. – Small tip on the side: You can improve the values of each horse. In this way, for example, the health of a racehorse can be optimized and it is better suited for combat. So you do not have to rely exclusively on a horse class.

There you can find and tame the beautiful steed on the western shore. Turkmen: Turkmen are one of the best all-purpose horses in the game. Available starting in Chapter 2 at Saint Denis Stables for $950, which requires a little patience. On the other hand, their balanced nature, high health, endurance and speed will delight you. MustangIf the Turkmene is still too expensive for you or an Arabian is not quite right for you, you should go for the Mustang. They are excellent in many situations. Bond with their rider for a lifetime. The perfect all-rounder can be found in the middle of the Heartlands and can be tamed there.
