When I purchased my copy of Red Dead Redemption, it came with a code that allowed me to get a deed for a unique horse...the "Warhorse". How does it compare with the other horses in the game, specifically the better ones such as the Hungarian Half-Bred, etc?

How do you get the warhorse? – Michael Pryor Jul 21 '10 at 20:33
It's a freebie that you can get by buying the game through certain chains. I believe I got the Warhorse by buying the game from Best Buy. – Beska Jul 22 '10 at 13:12

Comparing to the better horses only, it beats the Kentucky Saddler in nearly all aspects (can't confirm speed). However, in terms of stamina the Hungarian Half-Bred wins and in terms of speed the American Standardbred wins. So overall a great horse but NOT hands down the best for you, try the other top horses to see if they fit your play-style better.

For reference:, wikis are great for this kind of info in case you didn't already check.

The Warhorse is THE best horse in the game.

The other 'best' horses such as:

  • Hungarian Half-bred
  • American Standardbred
  • Kentucky Saddler

...share good speed ratios with good health ratios.

However, the Warhorse has the best speed ratio and the best health ratio. Period!
