Basic Information[]


Wandering, will remain close to you until spooked then it will run. While running away, they move very fast which often results in them colliding with rocks and trees as well as attracting the attention of various predators such as Rattlesnake, Cobra and Crocodiles.


Horses can come in many colours and patterns which is determined by the region in which they are found, either being from Desert, Temperate or Tundra regions.

Horses are useful mainly for their high speed and stamina, allowing a rider to cover large distances quickly. In addition, they can be equipped with a cargo harness to haul cannons. Their superior speed and stamina make them an arguably superior alternative to bears for swivel gun based PvP. They also have a high torpor kick that can be executed with the right click.


In-game speed testing shows a Horse can sprint 500 meters in 34 seconds.

  • That is 53 KPH which is 33 MPH.
  • That is equal to a ship moving at 29 knots*.

It can cover the same distance in 28 seconds by performing a nonstop series of sprinting jumps.

  • That is 64 KPH which is 40 MPH.
  • That is equal to a ship moving at 35 knots*.

Note: Wearing a Tier 2 Cargo Harness.png Cargo Harness or a Tier 2 Carriage Saddle.png Tier 2 Carriage Saddle will prevent your mount from jumping.

Of course, your actual sustained travel speed will be determined by your mount's stamina and the obstacles in your path. Fortunately, a Horse is very good at navigating obstacles. Its stamina drains very slowly and it recovers its stamina quickly.

* To see your ship's current speed in knots as a comparison, obtain a  Sextant buff.


Best Taming Foods and % with max Taming Proficiency
Level: Taming Food: % Rate:
Sugar Cane 16s

Preferred food: Sugar Cane.png Sugar Cane, Requires you to damage to 20% then Bola.png Bola.

Horses will also eat Vegetables, Fruits and Berries, although they are less effective incrementally in that order.

Tips for taming: tame a monkey and use the monkey to fling poop at it to slow it down until it is weak then throw a Bola and feed it.

Tip #2 - Horses have a slower swim speed, and if scared into the water, are easier to damage, however a user can't throw a bola from the water.


You can Breed Horses in the following biomes: Eastern Tropics, Western Temperate, Eastern Temperate, Eastern Tundra, Western Tundra, Equatorial, High Desert, Low Desert.

Horses cannot be bred in Western Tropics (verifed 2019-07-13 v209.499)

Acceptable temperatures for Horse mating and offspring are between 19c and 32c. Or 66.2f and 89.6f

Notes On Timing[]

Successfully raising a high-imprint offspring—or even just keeping your new buddy alive at all—can take quite a bit of time and good scheduling. So here is a rundown of the relevant times to be mindful of:

  • Mating time: xx minutes
  • Baby born after: 4 hours
  • Length of baby phase: 4 hours and 30 minutes
  • Cuddle interval: 8 hours
  • Total time from birth to adulthood: x days, x hours and x minutes


While the LMB ability does a small amount of damage, the RMB ability does more damage and a large torpor effect on hit.
