New Horse Guide

Now that new horses have been released, I’m sure everyone wants to get one. Here’s just a quick guide to using the new horse feature!

How to Get New Horses

You can purchase as many additional horses as you want but you can only have up to 10 in your stable. If you want to have more than that, you will have to make room by sending some horses on vacation (click the corkboard across from your closet and click “My Horses” to manage vacations). If you want to sell a horse, select the horse you want to sell by mounting it. Then dismount and remove all of the tack from it (including horseshoes) and then click the red button at the bottom of the character window. When you sell a horse, you will only get Jorvik Shillings for it. You cannot sell your original horse.

New horses can be found in the small stables located around Jorvik. There are different breeds available in several colors at each location. You will not be able to change anything but the name of your new horse. Once purchased, you can visit any of the horse stylists located around (Steve’s Farm, Jorvik Fishing Village, Firgrove, Valedale, Jorvik Stables) and you can change the style of your horse’s mane and tail. The shop only displays mane styles, but the tail style will change as well.

Click on a horse to view information about the breed and to see the starting stats of that breed. Each horse starts at level one, and each breed has unique starting stats. Once you have found a horse that you like, click to purchase the horse, and it will be transported to your home stable.

Once you have purchased a horse, the stall it stood in will be empty. They will restock the next day, so it is possible to buy multiple horses of the same color, if you choose to do so!

New horses can only be purchased with Star Coins. You do not need to be a Star Rider to buy a horse, but you will need to purchase Star Coins on your own. If you are not a Star Rider, you can use the home stable, but you are not able to change the location of your home stable and you cannot access the wardrobe inside the home stable.

Changing Horses and Caring for Horses

All of your new horses will be transported to your home stable. In your stable, all you have to do to change horses is climb on the one you want to ride. Only one horse can be taken out of the stable at a time. When you are in your stable, when on foot, your original horse is automatically set for you when you open the Character window. To change your horse’s equipment, you have to be mounted on the horse you want to change. Once outside the stable, the horse you have will be set for you in the Character window, regardless if you are mounted or not.

All of your horses have to be cared for at least once a day or they will become sad, even if you don’t ride them. Horses remaining in the stable will not need to be cared for again later as long as they are left in the stable. Once you take a horse out, the care icons will pop up in time.

When you log off, you will be left with the horse you last rode, or if you logged off from inside the stable with no horse chosen, you will be on your original horse the next time you log on.

Training Horses

The current maximum level for horses, is level 15. You can increase your horse’s level by doing daily races. This method is time-consuming but it does not cost additional money (in fact it EARNS you money). If you have the Star Coins, you can visit the horse trainer in Fort Pinta and Jorvik Stables, and Tobbe Larsson, at Steve’s Farm, to train your horse up one level with each person (so maximum three levels a day).

The price for each level is as follows (each level increases by 25 Star Coins):

  • Level 1 to Level 2 – 25 Star Coins
  • Level 2 to Level 3 – 50 Star Coins
  • Level 3 to Level 4 – 75 Star Coins
  • Level 4 to Level 5 – 100 Star Coins
  • Level 5 to Level 6 – 125 Star Coins
  • Level 6 to Level 7 – 150 Star Coins
  • Level 7 to Level 8 – 175 Star Coins
  • Level 8 to Level 9 – 200 Star Coins
  • Level 9 to Level 10 – 225 Star Coins
  • Level 10 to Level 11 – 250 Star Coins
  • Level 11 to Level 12 – 275 Star Coins
  • Level 12 to Level 13 – 300 Star Coins
  • Level 13 to Level 14 – 325 Star Coins
  • Level 14 to Level 15 – 350 Star Coins
  • Total Cost Level 1 to Level 15 – 2625 Star Coins

It is possible to progress the lower levels faster than the higher levels, so it is more cost and time effective to use races to train up to level 5 or 6 before using the horse trainer.

Horse Breed Guide

All horses of the same breed have the same stats, regardless of color. Here are the stats, colors, and locations of all the breeds currently available. Hover over each image to view the price of that horse.

Prices may change without notice. I regularly check to verify my information reflects the current prices in the game.

Because of their small size and chubby build, they have difficulty maintaining the speed of other wild Jorvik horses. While the Jorvik Pony is not really cut out for performance related competition, it remains a favorite breed among Jorvik horse owners who praise the fun and laughs that come from spending time with this charming little horse.

    Can someone help me?! Im stuck between getting the black and white tinker or the palamino. I like to get horses that most people dont have, however im in love with the tinkers!!! If I get a palamino it will be a girl and called: Cinnimonspirit If I get a black and white he will be called: Dragonborn
    Please help!

    • Wolflover said:

      btw, I got the name dragonborn off of skyrim! lol

      • Sadie Snowvalley said:

        I have an Andalusian called Dragonborn, because TES for the win! :D
        ( I would like to have a horse called Ravenrock or Ebonywarrior, but it’s not possible in SSO :/ Atleast Wolfqueen and Snowprince are possible. )

    • Wolflover said:

      Either that or, I wait till next week and look at the new tinkers. Im very picky xD

      • Wolflover said:


        • If would wait until this wednesday to see which tinker I like out of all of them. I heard there’s gonna one black and one white available. But it all depends on your taste once you see them :)

          BTW: I think Cinnamonspirit and Dragonborn are beautiful names ;)

          • Wolflover said:

            Thanks! :) Ive decided im going to wait until the knew tinkers come, because then I can shoose out of them all :D

    • Personally I would wait to see if I like the new ones, then decide. :)

    • Nicole Dawnright said:

      I know you are waiting but I would suggest getting the black and white tinker I have one and they are truly amazing. I think the palomino tinker’s color looks too similar to my palomino andy or the blonde arab. Just my opinion hope this helps.

    • Grace Skyvalley said:

      I Think you should go with the Palomino. The Black and white Is beautiful but the palomino always sticks out in the crowd to me! I would buy it but i am broke lol

    • Get the palamano. Not lots of people have the palamano. I have only seen about 10 palamano Yonkers.get the palamano,that’s my opinion.

    • ashleypurplegirl said:

      Gat the white

  2. Luna Starhall said:

    Heh, I’m stuck between the white tinker coming out this week or the palomino xD Anyway, I think you should get the palomino! She’s so pretty ^^ Hope you can decide! :D

  3. Rose Dolphinfield said:

    I am stuck between the black and white one or the brown and white one. I would wait until Wednesday but I haven’t opened the fishing village yet so I need help deciding. any opinions?

    • Rose Dolphinfield said:

      I mean the tinker horses just to clarify

    • For now, I would get the black and white one. But if you want a more original coat, I would get the brown and white. It would also be a good idea to wait until tomorrow to see the new tinkers. I bet they’re going to be beautiful :)

      Good luck :D

    • I know it’s hard to wait, but if you really want one of the new ones, you should just wait. But if you want one now, I would recommend the black and white one. They’re beautiful and just so darn cute! <3

    • ashleypurplegirl said:

      Get the white one they have moved to fg

  4. Wolflover said:

    Does anyone know where the knew tinkers will be? If they are in golden hills I will be the sadest person every because I cant go there yet :(

  5. nkavaler said:

    I am stuck between the new white tinker, dapple gray arab, and white selle francis. Which one should I get ?

    • I have had a Tinker, the grey Arab, and a Selle Francais, and I sold all but the grey Arab. I love her so I would get the grey Arabian. If you need names I like Silversong. ;)

      • Paige Riverbridge said:

        I fell in love with the paint Arabian, with my advice i would get the black Tinker and name it Midnight Blaze! Just ask me anything and I will tell you here are all my horses names.

        Brave Blaze

        Dragon Dancer

        Winter Shadow

        Wild Spirit

        Midnight Mystery

        Midnight Feather

        Midnight Warrior

        Fire Star ( SPOILER ALERT, Unknown that Fireheart from The Warriors would become Firestar )

      • nkavaler said:

  6. Wolflover said:

    Hey guys!
    Does anyone know where the black tinker and the white tinker are going after the horse market leaves cape west? If so, can you please tell me!

    • Sorry I don’t know but I’m sure they would make a good addition to Valedale!

    • I don’t know but I’m pretty sure Firgrove…. Like I have said before, my friend’s dad works for SSO; that’s how I knew about the white and black Tinkers coming out. I asked him where they will be and he said they are not 100% sure, but they think Firgrove or Golden Leaf Stables.

      • Martina Starbell said:

        well the other tinkers are at firgrove I think, so maybe they will be put with the other tinkers ?

  7. Wolflover said:

    I just got the quests to go to Golden hills! so exited, I can finally look at the new tinkers!

    • Martina Starbell said:

  17. Wolflover said:

    I am looking for names for a jorvick pony. Im going to be getting the Black and silver one in harvarst counties from padock island. If you come up with any names please tell me. He will be a boy. I was thinking of the name: Skyprince and: Smokesoul.

  18. Wolflover said:

  24. Hazel Silentknight said:


  25. ashleypurplegirl said:

    Hi I have no idea what horse to buy out of the entire game – I can’t buy from ghv- and I’m not too keen on tinkers.
    If I buy a horse for 910 (like an Arab or something) won’t have any sc left for tack unless I save up

    What is fastest out of the horses not from ghv coz I might get that


  26. ashleypurplegirl said:

    What r the fastest horses?
    Dutch warm bloods?
    (Can’t get a morab)

  27. SashaMysterypaw said:

    I don’t know which one i should get, one of the freisian sport horses (the appaloosa kind of one, the grey one or the black one) or one of the white andalusians help D:

    • nkavaler said:

      I would get the apploosa sport horse.

    • Nicole Dawnright said:

      Honestly I think you should get the white Andy. The White Andy is just so perfect and I love it’s crimped mane which may I remind you neither of the sport horses. Many of my friends on Star stable have said countless times that the appaloosa sport horse gets old. I hope this helps.

      • SashaMysterypaw said:

        You’re right! I Wanted a black horse but i already have a black danish, and that white andalusian is just gorgeous!! What about the grey one?

    • ashleypurplegirl said:


  28. Sofie Sweetstorm said:

    Can anyone help me???? I have been very wasty lately with my SC because I cant decide what to do with them! I made a mistake in naming 2 or 3 of my horses so should I change them, or get a new horse which will probably be the dark brown w/ black hair at the Winery or the black Oldenburg at Fort. I need to stop wasting my SC!!!

  29. capucine greenhurricane said:

    my parents are allowing me to spend my money one last time on a horse on star stable.

    i want speed, good for racing, and goes with red, or green (not together)
    here are my candidates:
    the black tinker, the light brown and black maned horse, the grey sport frezzy, the grey white andalusian.
    please vote! thanks!

    • Ariana Oakvalley said:

      It’s called a dark bay. :P

    • ashleypurplegirl said:

      I would get a fri sport (I have a lvl 14 one and he is SOOOOO fast) coz from what I’ve heard they’re ONE OF the fastest in the game along with Arabs and morabs

  30. capucine greenhurricane said:

  36. lunatemismoonlord said:

    I’m still stuck on which horse i should get next: Either a fresian sport, or a selle francais!

    • ashleypurplegirl said:

      If you want speed get the fri sport (The Apolsa is sooooooo cute)
      And I find the selle’s eyes freaky

      Just my opinion :P

  37. I need help deciding what horse I will get next I have a Friesian a Morgan and an Andalusian. I have no idea…please help.

  38. Hey everyone, I’m stuck between the sabino (pinto) arabian and the palomino. I think there are too many people with the palomino, but I just think both are so pretty!

  39. Odette Goldheart said:

    I love the horses! Can’t really choose my favourite. I have andalusians, pony’s, a friesian sport horse and a friesian. I love my starter and the andalusians really much. I do still have to train my friesian. The ponies are slow but cute <3 and the friesian sport horse is nice, but it is a bit though horse to ride. Soon I'll be buying an arabian, the white one, the look so lovely to me! I have ridden one, and it felt great, same goes for the tinker. The tinkers are really good I must say, I train her for a friend who has her holidays now, and I they are doing very good in races. I think that 4 for strength helps really well. It must be the most important things, strength, discipline and agility. But though I do wonder why none of the horses has a +1 or something for speed.So I think I will buy a black tinker too,he speaks most to me, like the white arabian, like I have to buy her. I don't like it that I have to send horses to horse island then, but that is just the way it is.

  40. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP! Ok so yesterday, I bought 100 Star Coins. It was the 19th, so it would be 200, since it was double SC. I was still on the game when I logged into the Star Stable website and bought the coins. Now it is the 20th and I still don’t have my coins!! (Yes, after I bought them it said “payment completed”, and in Payment History, it says 14/07/20, 100 Star Coins, Approved.) And that’s another thing. I bought them at like 8 pm on the 19th, and in my Payment History, it says I bought them on the 20th. Can someone tell me what’s going on?

    • Odette Goldheart said:

      Hmm that’s weird, you should already have them. The only thing I know is that when you bought new star coins (with or without dubble system) you must log in again. It doesn’t matters if you buy them when you are still on the game. But after you bought them you must log out and in again. I don’t know if it matters,if you log in later. And very weird that it says that you bought them on the 20th. I think you should contact contact support.

      • Yes, I logged out and in multiple times. Maybe I WILL have to contact them, although that is what I didn’t want to have to do. -.-

    • ashleypurplegirl said:

      Don’t worry that happened to me too but the website is back up now
      P.S I was on English server so maybe it was just that one

  41. Ashley Pandalake said:

    is Ghostrider a name choice for horses/ponies? cuz im going to name the highland colored pony Ghostrider. lol I just luv the movie!

  42. Hannah Skynest said:

    Hi, I’m looking for a racing horse, but I’m inclined to choose between a Tinker and an Arab. I already have an Andy that’s quite fast, but I’m looking for something that looks good and is fast. Any ideas?? (price no problem)

    • ashleypurplegirl said:

      If you want a fast horse get the Arab and not tinker
      If you want something cute and good at jumping get a tinker and not an Arab

  43. After the update (23/07/14) I STILL CAN’T GET IN AND IT’S 1:33PM!!!! DOES ANYONE KNOW WHYYY? If I go on the SSO website it shows the new update; but I can’t PLAY yet -____- WHY!??! :(

  44. Hannah Skynest said:

    Grrr!!! The clocks on the web page are different to where I live….

  45. Hannah Skynest said:

    2:05PM here

  46. ashleypurplegirl said:

    Don’t worry that happened to me too but the web is back up now

    P.S were you on the English server coz I might have just been that one
