The horse is your constant companion in Red Dead Redemption 2. The more you improve your bond with your horse, the better it will respond to your commands. There are different types of horses in Red Dead Redemption 2, and to unlock the best horse for yourself, you will have to make good progress in the game.
However, there is a way to get the best horses in Red Dead Redemption 2 very early in the game, as early as Chapter 2. You can make use of this method to get any horse in the game, including Tiger Striped Mustang, which in a legal way, can be acquired during Epilogue 2. So let’s get started with our guide on How to get the Best Horses Early In Red Dead Redemption 2.
How to get the best Horses early in RDR2
To get the best horses early, you must visit the location marked on the map above — the place is in St. Denis. This is the place where all horses randomly spawn.
Here are a few conditions you should take care of to get the best result with this trick:
- Go to this place during Daylight hours and during good weather conditions, i.e., no rain, no dark clouds, and so on. If the weather condition is not good, then all you have to do is sleep until you get to the day when it is perfect.
- Before going to the place where a mask because getting a horse from this place will be considered horse theft as you are stealing in town.
You will find two horses as soon as you arrive at this place. Check them out, and if they are from the higher tier and are the ones you wanted, then all you have to do is put your saddle on it and take it to the stables.
What do I do if the horses are no good?
If the horses available at this place are not from the top tier (i.e., common horses) and you don’t want them, save the game and close it. Once done, start the game again.
Once the initial in-game loading is done, you will spawn close to this place. Go to the area where you found the horse. You will find two new horses. Check them out; if they are among the ones you need, then put your saddle on it and head to the stables. If not, then quit the game entirely, as you already have a save. After quitting, reload the save and repeat.
This trick is simple but time-consuming and depends entirely on the choice of your horse. The one good thing is that it produces a 100 percent result.
What do I do if I don’t find any horses in St. Denis?
What to do if you arrive at this place and don’t find any horses? Go to the nearby camp, sleep until the morning or noon, and ensure the weather is right. Patience is going to be the name of the game as you wait for the perfect horse to arrive. But don’t worry, you’ll eventually get the horse you want, from the White Arabian to the Missouri Fox Trotter.
