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?

  • 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.

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: http://reddead.wikia.com/wiki/War_Horse, 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!
