Free Black Arabian


Recommended Posts

First, I checked with search to find a Guide or an existing title and since the return was Zero, I decided to add a topic as this is a very important game changer, imo.

In my humble opinion or not so humble, lol, this is the best horse in the game because of high health and stamina, highest acceleration, near the highest speed and the highest ease of use control of any horse in the game. People complain about it bucking you off but once your bonding is high, you can get out of all situations by just pressing the accelerator on this horse and the only thing that will stop you is something directly in your path that you cannot ricochet off of.

Absolutely free with no strings attached, easy to do, easy to find, and no possible bounty or repercussions:

1. Chapter 2, Saint Denis after midnight before 6 a.m. Best to start close to midnight as the event has to have time to spawn as it's a proximity spawn. If you get the horse before getting access to the stables, it will disappear when you get the stable quest but you can just go back to Saint Denis and get another Black Arabian the same way and this one will not disappear.

A man and his wife are discussing China (dishes and such). You can hear this or read it on your screen if you have it enabled in settings. They get robbed and she gets killed (wait until she dies). While the husband is emotionally distraught over his wife's passing, just walk over and take his Black Arabian Horse and ride away: you don't have to follow him or chase him and there is no bounty as he is too distraught to notice. Take a lantern with you as black on black is hard to see (night and black horse). There are at least 3 locations that I know of for this event to occur and a possible 4th. 1. The main drag boulevard coming from the West on the corner to the south at the first or 2nd intersection. 2. Immediately South of the Theater. 3. Just a little farther South of the Theater where there is no official intersection and about a block in to the East but you can hear or read the conversation from the street. 4. (possible) There is another type  of theater where this can also spawn.

The most common for me is 2 and 3 as they are so close together and finding number 4 takes you too far away from the other possibles so that before you know it, it is past 6 a.m. If you've gone by a location 2x, it's not going to spawn there, imo. And this method rarely requires a reload.

2. Chapter 2, Hunter spawn, north country, near a legendary animal site:

You help  the hunter or not as he is killed by the 2 grizzlies he is tracking. If you help him and as sole survivor you get the 2 grizzly kills plus a new Black Arabian to help carry both skins back to camp.

Nota Bene: you cannot have two Black Arabians for very long at the same time. You have enough time to get it back to camp with its booty and it has the same stats as your first but with no name. You can ride it also but can't really access it as it's really a ghost. If you take it to a stables it will immediately disappear. I think it will also disappear if you sleep and will definitely disappear on a reload.

that may be true if you acquire the horse that way, but i have TWO black arabians (one male, one female) from the stable in saint denis (and a white one from lake isabella) and i have no problems with them disappearing.

Where is this random encounter where a hunter is attacked by 2 grizzlies?  Which legendary animal is it near? 

The northernmost legendary animals I can think of are the moose, wolf, and grizzly. Or if you go all the way to the west side of the map, the bison.

From what I have seen in their stats, the white Arabian is the best one. The red chestnut and warped brindle are amazing horses also, but the white Arabian is so far the highest quality horse.

The black one is the best one Arthur can get. The best one in the game is the rose gray one that John can buy from the Blackwater stable.
