Guide for Red Dead Online – Get Best DLC: Campaign Mode Horse Black Arabian Early and Easy for FREE
How to GIT DAT HORSE
First, you have to have completed mission 10, “Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego,” given by Hosea. You don’t actually have to beat ALL other 9 missions to unlock this. It could be an earlier mission for you. Just watch out for big H on a yellow circle.
You will hunt a bear with Hosea; on the way to the bear, you will go through Valentine to sell a horse, and you will be taught how to acquire new horses, replace the saddle, etc. Without that, you won’t be able to get a new horse.
After you’re done hunting teddy bears, Hose-ea-ea will ask you if you’d like to fast travel back to the camp or you’d like to explore.
I suggest you choose to explore. I do not think you’ve unlocked fast travel from camp at this point anyway. Ride from the mission’s end to Saint-Denis. (You could, of course, fast travel with Hosea and then go to the train station if you have any money and use that to fast travel to Saint-Denis, that may even be better if you arrive at night, as you arrive close to Black Arabian encounter)
Totally unimportant and not the best horse, but if you want A Brindle Wrapped Arabian, you can also travel to Indian Reservation from the mission end. It is quite close. But while a good horse on its own, it is the worst Arabian horse in-game. And you gotta tame it.
How to actually get data horse (The Black Arabian Encounter)
It will be a robbery, and the treasured horse will be parked nearby. I suggest you make a save at night nearby the encounter place and either reload it to get a new attempt (you will be spawned somewhere nearby, that is how RDR2 saves work), or you can even roam around the area, turn a few corners, and see if encounter plays for you after that. All in all, it took me 3 reloads for this guide to get it. And it took me around this amount for my actual playthrough.
If a different encounter plays close to this one’s spot, then there will not be any new encounters unless you reload or sleep. By the way, if you arrive during the day, then I suggest you have a few dollars to get a room in an inn. (And some dollars to upgrade horse equipment would be nice, look for treasure gold bar guides here on Steam).
You can also try clearing other encounters around the spot to increase the chances of a robbery encounter happening when you come back here after sleeping or saving and load.
Here is a video with the encounter
And then, at 1:47, you can see that the horse is Arabian.
I apologize that there was a rather long chase; if you do everything right away and do not waste precious seconds making screenshots for a guide, you can steal the horse without being noticed and drive it to the stable right away. And it is also possible to watch the event unfold and then follow the couple to the outskirts of the city and rob them without any witnesses present, whatever your cup of tea is.
Obviously, as can be seen on the video, it is better not to get off the horse in an agitated state, or it will run away, and you won’t catch it. If you have your main horse close, you can replace the saddle; otherwise, go to Saint-Denis stables. Of course, being wanted may make this a bit hard.
An even better horse
This is actually 2nd best horse in the game but the best horse available for the campaign. The true best horse you can get is available only as a purchase after the epilogue. It is Rose Grey Bay Arabian. It just has 1 more point in health and stamina. Otherwise, all other points are 6 for speed and acceleration and 8 for handling. And some of the stats like stamina and speed can be increased further by buying a good saddle and stirrups.
Art of a game
I love this game, truly. I love robbing trains and robbing stores, and stealing horses, robbing banks; the story is great, and there is just so much to do. Graphically it is really amazing. And it has so much hidden depth to it, like being able to do things not intended by devs. And it doesn’t force you to do things you don’t like.
I hope you enjoy this game as much as I do! And have the best day!
