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.

    Hi :) thanks for helping me decide what horse I’m going to get (palomino Arab) BUT what tack should I get?

  2. ml tack with the night blanket looks so prettty on palomino <3
    And the brown legwraps from jarla :)
    Or the red blanket and red legwraps from cape west, with the red tie it would look so cute <3, with the ghv tack.
    Hope this helped X

    het thanks for the help but dont know what arab to get?

  4. Np! ^^

  5. I hope the new horses will be fjords <3

  6. By the way can sport frezzys change hairstyles? :)

  7. Hey :) was wondering where do you get the shiny western bridle? (That might be what it’s called -.- but it’s a brown one with white spots)

    • Ok well I’m assuming you know the different between Western and English bridles, but just in case…
      You get the English shiny bridle through a quest in Cape West. (English is the one with the nose band; Western has no nose band.)
      The Western shiny bridle can be bought at one of the little shops along the docks. (If you are on the ferry dock ride to the end and then there should be shops.)
      Sorry, I didn’t really know how to explain where those shops are…. XD
      Hope this helped!

  8. Ghv I think?

  9. Wow I had no idea so many other people shared my passion for Fjords…. I don’t own a horse, but I really want to. I keep telling my parents “not just any horse: a Fjord!” And they’re like “…Ok…?” XD

  10. what horse is the best to race?

    • capucine greenhurricane said:

      arabians, or fresian sport horses. personally, i think the horses get faster every time there is a new breed. u might want to wait for the new horses…

    • No breed is faster than any other (all have 0 for speed in breed bonus, minus the ponies). Though some are better suited for racing, those with higher command, discipline, and agility, are better at turning and changing speeds, which allow the horse to take off faster and turn sharper.


    • I don’t think I’m the one only one who will be really upset if the new horses a.) don’t come out this week AND/OR b.) aren’t Fjords. Will I? :P

  12. Me to, the first thing I will do tommorow is check the news for the sneakpeek xD I would totaly cry if there wouldnt be fjords.

  13. the new horses might b the gypsy vanner, i heard a lot of people talking about those before…

  14. Hey guys, I haven’t posted anything in a while but I’ll post more soon. Anyway, I wanted to know what you guys think about the andalusian/friesian horse I should get. I REALLY like the FIRST Friesian Sport horse listed and the reddish Andalusian. I honestly can’t decide!
    Thanks for y’alls help!
    Azina :D

  15. Ashley Pandalake said:

    I hope the next horse breed is a Icelandic Horse :D

  16. Thanks SO much Ashely! I do really like that one and I think it’s really pretty. Now.. what theme to pick..? So many decisions.. xD
    Thx gurrrrrrrrrl

  17. OMG was looking forward to this update SO much thinking they’d bring out that horse we’ve all been waiting for….but no -.-BUT we do have more quests :))

    P.S I’m not hating on sso :) they’ve made THE BEST (in my opinion) game in the world :) and I’m not complaining….much (jk)

    • I agree, SSO is a great game, but…SERIOUSLY? Why do they hate us?! D: (jk) And does anyone know what that one part of the update is when they say “Oh, and next time you’re caring for your horses with your friends, see if you notice anything different”? :/

      • It’s one thing to listen to the players but it’s also THEIR GAME. I think they can add and make whatever they want. Just because someone paid for it doesn’t mean they have to be a slave to the players. (Also yes, without the players there wouldn’t be any income, yada yada) But to a point they also should be able to make the game that THEY want to make. It’s not their fault everyone got their undies in a bunch and assumed that new horses would be added this week. SSO didn’t say new horses would be added this week, so it’s not like they are going back on their word. It’s the players that got their expectations too high and set themselves up for disappointment.

        Also, no I haven’t found out what is up with the last hint on the update. I logged on with a friend and tried everything from watching each other care for our horses to trying to care for each other’s horses. We weren’t able to find anything different but please let me know if you do! :)

        • I would just like to say that we players respect SS’s decision to not release the new horses this week, but we are also entitled to an opinion – good or bad. And if we are upset that the new horses didn’t come this week, it simply means we are anxious for them to come out, so no need to get all defensive of SS. :/

        • I haven’t seen anyone get their undies in a bunch. They’ve been pretty consistent with their horse updates. They have done it every four weeks so this week would have been a week early. I am pretty sure the new breed (which I am hoping IS, indeed, the Fjord since I have four Fjord boys) will be released in this next update. I’d like to think that the new breed is why they have been doing recolors for the past few (although the North Swedish DOES have some conformation differences from the Tinkers). I’d like to think that the recolors were a way to give us new horses to play with while they worked on doing the new breed.

          I’ve noticed that they have fixed a lot of structural issues on more recent horses so, while I have been eagerly waiting for the Fjords, I wasn’t too disappointed when it was a different breed each time since each one was getting better and better as far as how they move and look. The Tinkers don’t have that funny tweaked back left foot and some of the newer breeds have back left feet that actually move properly like the right one does.

          • The ‘undies in a bunch’ comment was mostly at the previous comment of ‘seriously, why do they hate us’ and some of the general Facebook drama. I apologize if it came off as moody. I meant it as more of a caution to the people who get their hopes up (not saying it isn’t okay to be excited!), and then get mad and accuse SSO because they were disappointed with the update.

        • Ashley Dawnhurricane said:

          The new thing is that the food, water bucket, brush, and hoof pick didn’t used to show when other people took care of their horses. Now it shows. Took me a while to figure it out!

        • Now you can see what someone else is doing
          (So you can see the brush or food)
          Hope this helped

  18. What horse should I get? I’ve a white & black appaloosa that has black gear. But what else should I get, there are so many horses to choose from!

  19. What kind of horse do you want? It depends on that, then choose the color. :D

  20. I would wait for the new horses and then choose a horse ;) A arab is a great horse, sooo I suggest arab <3 the palomino or black one! Or dapple <3

  21. I would really like to thank SS for introducing JA to us. I’M IN LOVE OMG! JA is amazing and I wish I spoke Swedish. :(

  22. Thanks! I’m going to get an Arab & then wait for the new horse breed that is coming.

  23. Heya guys. So I need your help again :) I lost my horses, cuz of a hacker (this dude had to be a genius coz I did NOT give my pw) I have sent sso a mail and I got my arab, frezzy and pony back ( probably coz they were on horse island or something, they could not give the others back) So im rly sad now :( 10 horses, GONE. What should I do now? I used rd code so I got 900 sc today. What horse to get? ;)

  24. By the way, I still got all my clothes and tack :D

  25. Guys I have 183 SC and I want to get the palomino Aray. I’m waiting for Isabel Eastfield to respond to my comment but in the meantime does anyone know any redeem codes (besides BIRTHDAY3)???
    Please tell me the code and how many SC it’s worth. Thanks! :D


  27. oh soz that was in caps sorry … but still!!!

  28. HELP! I don’t know what horse to buy… should I wait for the new horses, or get a tinker? i heard that the tinker horses r really slow… or should i get a frezzy? i mainly want speed

  29. grey friesian sport horse or the dark brown one? im level 7, going to level 8 & i dont know which one to choose. im preferring the grey one, since not many people has it (in my server and people i see) but i dont really know, so could you tell me some of your opinions? thanks!

  30. @safrina
    Well I used rd code I got from a friend, het patents have friends in sweden that work for computerprograms AND sso to :D !! Code was: HAPPYPONY134 It worked with me, for 700sc so I hope it will work for you to ^^

  31. That code didn’t work for me but oh well. I have enough for my horse BUT I have no clue what to name him. He’s the Friesian Sport horse, the one that looks like oreos. Any ideas on what to name him?

    Cadence, you could wait for the new horse to come out, then, if you like the new one a lot, get it. If not, I suggest the Frezzy. I have a Tinker and they are SO SLOW!! I still ride her though… just takes me forever to get places and do stuff, you know? My suggestion was just that. A suggestion. Don’t take it if you don’t like it. :D

    ~Azina :) :P :D

  32. Nevermind about the names :P I chose Stormjumper. :D :P

  33. Thanks, everyone! I’ll just wait, maybe the new horse will be a fjord! :D

    • I HOPE SO TOO!

    • capucine greenhurricane said:

      sorry, but are fjords fast? in frozen they looked fast, but are they fast?

      • Ariana Opalsmith said:

        Eh, not really. But you can’t count on the fact that they are not too fast in real life. I mean, Andies are definitely not racing material in real, but on SSO they are pretty good racers. SSO May completely disregard the fact that Fjords aren’t too fast and make them fast anyway.

      • LOL “in Frozen.”
        Yes, they are pretty fast, and also very sturdy. Great X-country horses, as they are made for navigating rocky terrain. :3

  34. Well actualy in real fjords can be fast, but only if THEY WANT to be fast. They are just fun :D

  35. Are Tinkers rly so slow? Coz I want the black one sooo much D:

  36. what is the age range for SS?

  37. I’m wondering the age appropriate range for players is. for example: 8 to 10 or 7 to 20 i dk. is fifteen too old?!
    srry i should probably know I’m just wondering, the only reason I’m on SS is for the fun of it, horses, and clothing, and also winning races.
    sorry, could not reply, error :(

    • It is made to be appropriate for younger players, but it is also made to be fun for all ages. I’m 21, and have met quite a few adult players who are older than me even, and I also have a lot of friends who are younger, too. :)

  38. OMHG soooo exited for the update D: Im checking each minute if there is something on the news of sso :D IM CROSSING MY FINGERS FOR FJORDS <3

  39. OMFGGG THE NEW SWEDISH HORSES ARE THE BEST!!! <3 <3 I need sc now sooooo bad.

  40. same here im gonna buy sc right away eventhough there isnt double starcoins anymore :D

  41. cant believe how cute the white manes are <3

  42. Addison Dawncamp said:

    I hope i’m not the only one that is just a little ticked off about the update. They have promised us them for WEEKS. Now a FEW MORE weeks!? This game is not making me happy, and i’m sure that I am not the only one who is not happy.

  43. well yeah, but lots of stuff is coming. ANDDDD they never promised horses within two weeks or something. I would rather have them take long on making the horse and making it perfect, than rushing and making it horrible. And why the fuss? I mean I get it, Im sad to but there are new horses anyway! 2 new swedish horses. Not tying to be mean or something, I understand you to, I thought the fjords (or other horses) would come to. :)

  44. I like this week’s update, but I’m disappointed. I was really hoping the new horses would come out! :( Well, I spent my coins on the dark new Swedish horse (Hawkeye) and I WUVE him, so I can’t say I’m ungrateful… :3

  45. I rly want the dark swedish horse from fp now, but im kind of trying to save my money for the new one.. :(

    • I got that one and the only regret I have is that I didn’t save for the new one. :( So maybe just wait and see what the new one will be, and if you don’t like it, get the Swedish horse. :)

  46. I’m gonna buy one of those gorge north Swedish horses since I’m level 14 :3

  47. if black forest horses are also draft/cold weather horses, do you think they would do well in the valley if the get released?
    lols forever black forest horses!

  48. Thanks Safrina! I will totaly do that ;) An by the way what are black forest horses? I dont know those horses :D
