DO NOT let your legendary horse die

Evidently, you can't lose your Legendary horse.  I was riding the DLC war horse last night and had my Arabian in the stable so i could work on the sharpshooter and bandit challenges and not lose the Arabian like what happened to me before.  One of the lawmen got a lucky shot and killed my DLC horse when i was jumping off it to run for cover.  After i died i ran back to the stable and the DLC horse was there for sale at $0.00.

So then i try and do the horseman challenge 

Spoiler

Ride from Strawberry to St. Denis in less than 9 minutes

Figured i'd cut some time if i road on the railroad tracks.  Just so happens i was entering a cut through a hill so the walls on each side of the track were close, and my horse got stuck between the train and the wall and quit running.  So i thought well heck there goes the challenge i'll just turn around and restart since i wasn't too far from Strawberry.  

I move my stick to the right to turn toward the hillside , looked like there was plenty of room to turn my horse as the train went by.  Stupid horse turned left instead, tried to stop a train car with his head, and was instant dead.  I grabbed my saddle from his body and hoofed it back to Strawberry.  Checked the stables there and no Legendary horse.  Oh yeah, i saved it in Valentine.  So i stole the stagecoach and rode to Valentine.

No horse in the stable there either.  My legendary horse is gone again.  In it's place, with the same name, is the brown plain starting horse i bought with Hosea.  

Rockstar really needs to fix this horse glitch.  I wonder if they'll tell me to clear my cache again since i put in a ticket on it :P

So DON NOT let your Legendary horse die, it won't come back.  Also seems like Arthur can't make up his mind if mine was a boy or girl.  When i targeted and patted it, he said good boy.  when i was riding and hit the button to calm it, he said good girl lol.

I knew it.  Rockstar's answer to my ticket on the disappearing horse  was to clear the cache.

But then i got looking online for more info to send them as i've seen other's post on this. and here's what i found -

Rockstar Games wanted the horses in Red Dead Redemption 2 to play a more significant part in the game rather than just a cool way to travel. The studio confirmed that players will be given the opportunity to bond with their noble steeds, which will serve as a beloved companion. Of course, the more loyal the horse is to the player, the better it will perform and behave in combat.

Moreover, it seems that players must also ensure the safety and well-being of their horses as Phil Hooker, the director of technology at Rockstar Games, confirmed that once horses die in-game, they will remain dead forever.

Guess i should should read more on the game huh?  :P  And why the hell couldn't the Rockstar rep tell me horse death is permanent?  If I offered my customers the round about support they do i'd lose my job.

My buddy had this happen to him. He contacted Rockstar about it and they didn't give him a straight answer. Just suggested that it would be saved and still in the stable, which it was not and still is not. It has been weeks. The horse is long gone.

That's because horses die a permanent death.  You don't get them back except the DLC horse.  So save often!

If you have the horse saved to the stable and it dies, you still have it but I never had issues with the legendary horse dying and not coming back myself. I mean I save all my horses so I make sure they are there.
