Completely lost my horse

Recommended Posts

So I purchased a dutch warmblood from the stable in Valentine and bonded with it all the way up to a level 3 and then I heard about the white arabian in the wild so I went to go get that horse. I was successful so when I broke it in I transferred my saddle to the arabian and had the dutch warmblood follow me.  Now some how on my way to the trapper to sell a legendary pelt the warmblood got lost and was out of range for me to whistle for it so I said okay i’ll just go back for it later or i’ll go to the stable and call it back since ya know I dished out $450 plus upgrades for it and the game isnt gonna screw me like that. WELL.... I was wrong I stabled the arabian and noticed  my warmblood was gone and I only had one slot left in my stable and the warmblood wasn't in any of my slots so I took a random horse to go get him  (I dont know why I did this) It turned out by the time I got to him the horse I was on bonded with me and took that last slot and my dutch warmblood completely disappeared. I get the principle behind red dead wanting to be super realistic but now I’m out $450 and I cant even sell it to make some of that back in a game where at first money is hard to come by. It’s a good game but this has really upset me even though I have a better horse now it’s just annoying that the game wouldnt save the horse I bought and ask me if i wanted to swap it out with another horse. Has anyone else had this issue and maybe gotten their horse back?

I've not had this issue exactly, but I've "lost" several horses. I've not bought one, personally. Why buy one right now when there are so many in the wild that can be tamed? 

It is tricky however, you must be careful when bonding with your new horse. First, it's advisable any time you acquire a new horse to keep your saddle on your main horse. When you transfer saddles to a horse, it becomes your "main horse" and the other a "temporary horse". I've noticed that "temporary horses" disappear easily, either through a bug/glitch or some sort of death. 

The safest bet, when acquiring a new horse or using two horses is to follow these steps:

1. Always saddle your best horse

2. Always ride the new horse, always. Instruct your main horse to follow. He/She will always be marked on the map and will respond to commands/whistles.

3. Take your newly acquired horse to a stable and stable it. 

4. Ride your new horse into the stable, this will allow you to swap horses out.
