Customise and Upgrade Your Horse – Red Dead Redemption 2 – Horse Guide

August 20, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is Andrew and welcome to a horse guide for Red Dead Redemption 2. In this guide i’m gonna be showing you how to customise and upgrade your horse using the stable. So head into the nearest stable marked with the horseshoe icon on the map. Here we have the stable menu, which is kind of self-explanatory. At the bottom of each menu, it actually tells you what each option offers and then the bottom right; it will have the button prompts for each interaction. So I’ll try not to go into too much unnecessary detail. The manage owned horses option allows you to switch horses, sell horses as well as view their info and retrieve any horses that you’ve left out in the open world. Stolen horses can be sold for money but at stables they sell for very little, so it’s better to actually sell them to a fence or anyone else that’s offering money for them. Keep in mind that level 4 horses will sell for a higher price. So it might be worth levelling up the horse before you sell it. Back in the stable menu, we have the buy horses option which pretty much speaks for itself. You can buy your horses here and different stables will have different stock. They have different types of horses and such. Back in the stable menu again, we have the tack and services option. Tack will allow you to customise and upgrade your equipment. Different saddles will give you different combinations of stats. Which you can view by selecting Any one of the saddles and pressing R3 or the right analog stick in to get the the stat info that it provides. Stirrups act as upgrades that change your speed and acceleration, while also decreasing the stamina drain rate. Naturally higher numbers are going to be better. So try and pick something that has the highest numbers on it. Saddle bags allow you to increase your outfit storage which includes hats as well as masks. Horns, blankets and bed rolls are purely cosmetic. Now I myself have opted for the improved garden vacuum saddle. I found that it was the best all-round it offered 16 percent 14 percent 16 percent I thought that that was the best all round stat for me. Now The grooming menu allows you to actually customise your mane and tail. You can pick between different hairstyles and then if you press left or right on the d-pad, you can actually change the colour of your hair. I went for a braided tail because I felt that that suited a Female horse a little bit better. When you go to the services option This allows you to change the name of your horse. Or you can buy a care package Which actually helps solidify or fortify your cores. Now just so you get a better understanding of cores in case You don’t know what they are. Cores act as a decaying attribute and they decay over time or with use lower cores will equal lower regeneration for the corresponding bars. So for example; if your stamina core Which is the lightning bolt symbol, if that’s empty Then your stamina bar regenerates slower or the lower the core the lower the regeneration. Cores also act as an extension of these bars so if your stamina bar is empty it will actually start to deplete your stamina core. So you can be sprinting, even if your stamina bar runs out, you do have a little bit of a reserve. Just keep in mind if that runs out completely, the regeneration is going to be slow as poopies. Back in the stable menu, We have horse provisions which is an option that allows you to buy food and Tonics and medicine and that sort of thing for your horse. While you’re here, I highly recommend buying the horse Reviver. If you haven’t watched my horse care & maintenance video, this is very vital that you keep as many of these on you while you’re exploring, because it Mitigates the risk of you losing your horse if it’s injured. That’s it. That’s all you need to know about using the stable and upgrading your horse. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments down below.
