Red Dead Redemption 2 Best Horses: Top 5 Best Horses & How to Get Them

Top 5 Best Horses in Red Dead Redemption 2 & How to Get Them

Horses are an incredibly important aspect of your time in Red Dead Redemption 2. Your steed is not only a convenient way to get around, but a walking inventory, and something you can bond with too, which is always nice. The one you start out with at the beginning of your adventure, however, isn’t so great. As such, we’ve put together a complete list of the top 5 best horses in Red Dead Redemption 2, down below. It includes a breakdown of their stats, where to get them, how much they’ll cost you, and any other requirements you may need to know about before you can splash your cash on these noble steeds.

The five best horses listed below contain a mix of the very best that Red Dead Redemption 2 has to offer overall, as well as one or two that don’t require you to make your way so far through the story. Many of the very best horses in Red Dead Redemption 2 can only be purchased once you’ve reached the very late stages of the game. We’ve noted all of this below, however, to clear this up for you.

Dutch Warmblood (Seal Brown)

  • Where Can it Be Bought: Strawberry Stable (Chapter 3)
  • Health: 4
  • Stamina: 5
  • Speed: 3
  • Acceleration: 3
  • Handling: Standard
  • Cost: $150

The Dutch Warmblood’s stats aren’t going to compared with the other horses that made the cut on our list, but that’s because it’s a great all-rounder that you can unlock relatively early on in Red Dead Redemption 2. If you’re looking for a solid upgrade from your starter horse that isn’t going to break the bank, you should definitely look at getting this one. You’ll need to wait until Chapter 3 to be able to grab it from Strawberry Stable. Unfortunately, we’ve yet to find this one out in the wild.

Andalusian (Rose Grey) 

  • Where Can it Be Bought: Van Horn Stable (Chapter 6)
  • Health: 7
  • Stamina: 5
  • Speed: 3
  • Acceleration: 3
  • Handling: Standard
  • Cost: $440

The Andalusian makes it onto our list of best horses for its tanky health stat. Sure, it might be a little slower than the other entries on our list here, but its high stamina stat makes it a perfect getaway steed. Plus, at only $440, it’s less than half the cost of the rest of the best horses to come on our list. Keep in mind, however, you can only get the Andalusian from Van Horn stable once you’ve reached chapter 6 in the story.

Again, we’ve yet to find this one out in the wild.

Turkoman (Silver)

  • Where can it Be Bought: Tumbleweed Stable (Epilogue 1), Blackwater Stable (Epilogue 1)
  • Health: 7
  • Stamina: 5
  • Speed: 6
  • Acceleration: 5
  • Handling: Standard
  • Cost: $950

Now we’re beginning to see the big boys make an entry. The Turkoman is a bit of a beast in every category, with health and speed being its particular strengths. It’ll cost you $925- $950 to get your hands on from the Blackwater or Tumbleweed stables following reaching epilogue 1 in the story. The difference in price comes down to the coat you want, we’ve listed the silver one here, which can be gotten at Tumbleweed stable, with the Dark Bay variant available at Blackwater.

Missouri Fox Trotter (Silver Dapple Pinto)

  • Where Can it be Bought: Blackwater Stable (Epilogue 1)
  • Health: 5
  • Stamina: 6
  • Speed: 7
  • Acceleration: 5
  • Handling: Standard
  • Cost: $950

If speed’s more what you’re looking for, the Missouri Fox Trotter is one of the best horses you can get in Red Dead Redemption 2. With an acceleration stat of 5, and a maxed out speed stat of 7, this is blisteringly quick. Plus, its stamina of 6 means it’ll go for ages.

Again, however, it can only be gotten after reaching epilogue 1 in the story, so you’ll have to wait a while. That, and its hefty price tag will mean you won’t be able to get this horse for a while. Once you do, though, you’ll be the envy of many cowboys.

Arabian (Rose Grey Bay)

  • Where Can it Be Bought: Blackwater Stable (Epilogue 1)
  • Health: 7
  • Stamina: 7
  • Speed: 6
  • Acceleration: 6
  • Handling: Elite
  • Cost: $1250

The Arabian Rose Grey Bay horse is the best horse in Red Dead Redemption 2. Its stats are unparalleled, even offering elite handling. Its stats are almost entirely maxed out, but all of this comes at a price. You’ll need to shell out $1250 at the Blackwater Stable upon reaching epilogue 1 to get it.

It’s worth noting that it is possible to get the Arabian White Coat out in the northwest corner of Red Dead Redemption 2’s map around Lake Isabella. However, its stats aren’t quite as good with both its health and stamina coming in at a 5 rather than a 7. If you want to save cash, though, and don’t mind making these stat sacrifices, you’ll want to embark on a trip to Lake Isabella with your lasso.

And there you have our top five best horses in Red Dead Redemption 2. Should we come across any other of superior horses on our travels across the wild west, we’ll be sure to update this guide and let you know.
