How to Get the Best Horses Early in RDR2
All you have to do is visit the location marked on the map below – the place is in St. Denis. This is where all the horses randomly spawn.
Here are some conditions you need to take care of to get the best results from this trick:
- Go to this place during the Sun and during good weather conditions ie no rain, no dark clouds, etc. If the weather conditions are not good then all you have to do is sleep until you reach the day where it is perfect.
- Before going to the place put on a mask because taking a horse from this place is considered stealing a horse because you are stealing from the town.
Now, let’s look at the steps you need to follow to get the best horse in Red Dead Redemption 2.
How To Get The Best Horses Early In Red Dead Redemption 2
When you reach this place you will find 2 horses. Check them and if they are from a higher level and are what you want then all you have to do is put your saddle on it and take it to the stables.
If the horses available in this area are not from high level ie common horses and you don’t want them then all you have to do is SAVE the game at that moment and quit the game completely. Once done, start the game again, and once the initial in-game loading is done, you’ll spawn near this area. Go to the place where you found the horse. You will find two new horses. Check them, if they have the one you need then put your saddle on it and head to the stables. If not, quit the game because you already have a save. After quitting, reload the save and repeat.
Please note: This trick is very simple but time consuming and depends on the choice of your horse. A good thing is that it produces a 100 percent result.
What to do if you arrive at this place and find no horses? Go to a nearby camp and sleep until morning or noon, and make sure the weather is right. Patience will be the name of the game as you wait for the perfect horse to come along. But don’t worry you can get the horse you want from White Arabian to Missouri Fox Trotter.
