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 its name on the “My Horses” list and the horse’s character sheet will pop up. Make sure to 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.

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.

  3. sasha mysterypaw said:

  4. im not sure what horse to get im so confused:(

    • layla deerbrooke said:

      im saving up for a frezzy to surprise my friend :3

    • Well, if this is your first horse (that you buy), I would look around for a while and decide what you want. This site helped a lot and continues to do so today for me. Off this site, I chose my first horse: the black and grey Jorvik pony (Rockstar <3). If you are buying SC, it's much harder to make the choice, since you might get a lot (like 1000 or something) and have a bigger group of horses to choose from. But if you're saving, it narrows it down to what horses you can afford.
      If you have over 910 SC, I would recommend an Arabian. They're gorgeous and fast. :)
      Hope this helped!

  5. i have 928 SC, and i do not know if i should get an arab ( in that case, which color?) a white andy, or a black friesian sport horse. helppp D:

  6. Isabel Eastfield said:

    thankyouuu so much for the help :D now im gonna choose out of these 3 horses, dapple andy, dark frezzy or black arab.. help? :)

  7. Everyone trying to decide between frezzy and arab= CHOOSE ARAB O.o !! I bought the paint one and it is amaaaazing I love her SO much :D Pretty much people have a frezzy alwready, so you will all look the same.. Tinkers are wonderfull to ;) xoxo

  8. Does anyone know if Ferdinands horsemarket will bring New horses? :o

    • Not this week. However, I do think that the moving of certain horses in last week’s update supports the idea that more horses will be coming soon. :)

  9. Ashley Pandalake said:

    which Arabian should I buy?
    The Palomino or Paint?

  10. Aniya Wolfheart said:

    Im kinda having a crisis, I have no idea whether to buy a Friesian, Sport Friesian or the White Andy. Help!

    • I know how you feel! It’s really up to you. I can give you a few reasons one horse would be better than the other, but I think you should choose. If I were you, I’d wait a few days and see which one(s) you still want after those days. Sometimes I find I don’t even want the horse anymore after a day or two! I wanted a Frezzy for quite some time, and when I got the SC, I decided to go with a different horse, and I have no regrets! (I got the Buckskin andy instead.) So maybe just look around a little more. Who knows…you might find another horse you want more!

  11. Courtney Birchdawn said:

    I am not sure what tack to get for my black & white frezzy sport horse & i need another set of tack for my white arab, any suggestions – i need fast tack that matches my horses, to be clear i need 1 fast tack set for my b&w frezzy sport horse and another set of fast tack for my white arab, any suggestions ???

    • Personally, I use the same tack almost every day, no matter which of my 6 horses I’m riding. I use the Moorland set bridle and saddle, the red pro blanket, a red bow for the tail, and the dark red leg wraps from Cape West. This is very fast tack and looks good on pretty much any horse. (I ESPECIALLY like when I see it on white arabs; the white and red is such a pretty contrast!)
      I really can’t say what I think you should get for your Sport Horse…I just used my red stuff for mine. (Like I said…every day, no matter what horse. :3)
      I hope this helped! :)

  12. Ok well it’s time again for my weekly post. :3
    This site:
    You’ll notice I’ve been responding to more comments than usual. My friend asked me if I could respond a little more, so I’ll be checking to see if I can help answer questions daily. :)
    SSO Weekly Update:
    I LOVE the expansion of our inventories. I was having to sell a lot of my clothes and tack due to lack of storage space, and I was actually just about to send a recommendation to SS about fixing that, so I’m really glad they got ahead of me. :) As for the new clothes, I think they’re cute, though I doubt I’ll be wearing them (pink’s not my color). But again, still very cute. :3 It doesn’t look like the Horse Market will have any new horses for us next week, but I’m guessing later in September or early October we’ll be seeing some new breeds. :D

  13. I agree Safrina ;) I think the only new clothes I might be wearing is the purple vest.

  14. I have the paint arabian, but i have saved up to 1250sc ;) i have to choose between frezzy, grey dapple andy or lightbrown tinker. Can i get advice? :3
