The Witcher 3 ~ Horse Races ~ How to Win!

August 12, 2019


Hello guys,
I’ll show you how to win the horse-races in The Witcher 3. For this you need a good
saddle and a simple strategy! I use the Zerrikanian saddle for my horse
– it provides 80 stamina. I read about this saddle providing only 60; informations aren’t
coherent on this subject, as well concerning the locations where to get it. Anyway: If
your saddle provides 60 to 80 stamina, that would be fine – no matter which one it is
at the end of day. During the race the most crucial thing is
to save your horse’s stamina. It provides you the speed you need to overtake your opponents,
otherwise you won’t have a good chance to win. But most of the racetracks are longer
than your stamina would last (to deal with this is the difficulty in these races, actually).
The best strategy is to block your enemies – so they’re slowed down while your horse
regenerates it’s stamina. It’s a bit tricky: you have to maneuver them into obstacles,
use small passages or curves. – It’s important to gain a sense of the game mechanics…
Here is some footage so you get a better idea: If your opponent is in front of you, that’s
not a big deal if you have enough stamina left. It’s also important to have knowledge
about the track – so you know how much stamina you possibly need to cross the finish line!
You don’t want to decelerate in the last quarter of the track!
Riding against two opponents is a special challenge. Use the same strategy and keep
one eye on the minimap to pick your best chances to drag them both. – Sometimes it could be
really close! If this video was helpful leave a comment

  1. Thanks man on the saddle tips and i kinda was already blocking them while racing lmao thanks again oh nice amor 1 of the best ive seen so far in the game in my opinion

  2. i nev bothered with upgrading the saddles and blinders. have only won vegelbud one. the forktail E guy ,i cld have beat him but the horse rammed into the side and couldn turn out in time! its damn hard to follow the twisting tracks

  3. Was losing even with a saddle of 80, and your tip on blocking opponents while regenerating stamina is great!

  4. These races are so dumb, sometimes your opponents glitch over fences and stuff, the only way of winning is by blocking them and it looks so buggy and stupid

  5. This is just superb, I been tryin to find out about "gg horse racing" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Honackson Meyrayden Idea – (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my buddy got great results with it.
