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.

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.

They have a fantastic temperament and are great with kids, making them a popular choice all over the world. Nobody really knows when Fjord horses came to Jorvik, but a popular theory is that they came with the Norwegian Vikings who ravaged the island. Some people believe that it’s quite the opposite, and that the vikings took the horses home with them to Norway from Jorvik. They believe that the lovely little Fjords originated from the tall and barren mountains of Jorvik, in the mythical Valley of the Kallters; a place spoken of in legend but that has never been found.

Breed bonus: Strength +4, Discipline +2, Speed +0, Endurance +0, Agility +1

The Fjord horses are located in the Kallter camp outside of Icengate in the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur. These are the only horses in the game that currently have a reputation requirement. All Fjords come with special Kallter tack, and there is one ‘turbo’ horse that is already trained to level 10.

You must reach Popular reputation level to be able to purchase a Fjord horse.

  1. Yeah Arvella! Just got on today, went a bit mad with sso, cos I had been saving for weeks, but after my schoolday, boy, Im gonna search for my Fjord! Guys, Arvella is right, Don’t be mad!

  2. I don’t really, but the basic thing: Look for green sparkly stuff!

  3. Arvella Kingbear said:

    Of course :) this was a comment I put on a fb post:
    Alright, key places: the road down to dino valley (as in the road that takes you down to dino valley without using the elevator), around the elevator, right outside the camp, on the islands in the lake, under the Dino claws, along the walls around the lake, fences on roads, on the geysers (there are two separate gyser areas, both have items), in the corners of the lake, and right before the bridge that leads you to that twisting island (the one where you go around and around). There are items in Mist valley, but it’s far and not worth heading to. It’s just a waste of time.

  4. I want to apologize to Maggie and to all of you for my mistake. I realize it was wrong in the first place to swear, but I was having a terrible day. i’m 14 years old, and I hope you understand. I know, I shouldn’t try giving excuses. Maybe I’m just spoiled. I will try to have more self control in the future.
    Maggie, I just am really upset at you though. You embarrassed me in front of everyone who read all this. I know it’s your site and you have the right to discipline users but saying things about me just because I’m not a patient person isn’t right. I know, you’re going to say I embarrassed myself. Please don’t.
    I’m sorry I acted the way I did. I’m talking to Maggie and to everyone. I don’t blame you all for being mad at me. I will try to do better and be a better person.
    I’m working hard to get my Fjord, and it will probably be more special to me once I get it because I’m working so hard for it. I understand I shouldn’t have taken out my anger on you guys or anyone. Anger makes me do weird things sometimes….
    Like I said, 14…hard time for me. I wont post things on here anymore unless I’m sure it won’t backfire and negatively affect me, Maggie, or anyone who reads it.
    I hope you’ll all forgive me and give me one more chance. I’ve always been a clean commenter, and this is a first offense so I will try really hard to do better.
    Sorry again Maggie. :(

    • -publicly forgives and gives a pixel cookie on a silver platter-

    • I really appreciate your apology, it means a lot more than you know! <3

      I didn't intend to embarrass you. I tried to paraphrase your original comment in a way that was more appropriate. I'm sorry I may not have used the right words to correctly sum up your feelings. I kind of lashed out at you too, and for that I am very sorry. It's always hard being an adult, who has to work every day for her own money and wants to be able to have the game as a little escape from the real world, constantly see spoiled brat kids always whining about how they can't get what they want when they want it. I was quick to assume you were like that and I stand greatly mistaken.

      I'm really glad you decided to come back to the blog. Your feedback is always welcome :)

      I must also say, you've greatly impressed me. You seem to be very mature for your age and being able to admit when you are wrong takes a lot of guts. I wish you good luck in getting your Fjord, I'm still working on it myself!

      Have a great day and happy riding! <3

      • Thanks, it means a lot to me that you’ve all forgiven me. I’m actually working on getting my Fjord now, and I’ve already found 10 tradeable things. in the meantime I also had the opportunity to explore Dino Valley more, and I can’t believe all the places I have discovered. Also I got 4 stars! :D
        You’ve all taught me a lesson I’ll never forget . And I’m already really proud of my work toward the Fjord. You guys were right…something is more valuable if you work for it. :)

        • Make that 20 things! :D
          Nighty night!

        • Sometimes it’s just shell shock. I didn’t really expect to need reputation with the kallters either, but thankfully I was already popular with them because I wanted access to the more intricate clothes they had for sale that you can only buy if you are popular with them. I was also delightfully pleased that they were such a reasonable price and came with kallter tack. The only disappointment I really experienced with them is that they don’t have any red dun fjords right now. I hope they add them in the future. I don’t really think the level 10 is worth the star coins(1480) since i have my grey dun up to level 9 after 2 days of training. I also love love love the new hairstyles for the fjord. My next new horse is going to be the golden dun fjord, but that is a while away since I only have 5 star coins left lol. I’m happy with Dragonwarrior. They are so worth it.

  5. Also, does anyone know how you collect things? Do you just…look for them then pick them up? :/

  6. Ok I’ve found 4 stuff I’ve been able to trade, but I’m having a hard time finding more. I’m prob not looking hard enough. can anyone give me some tips? :3

  7. just saying the fjords are worth all the quests. they come with the gear, one is level ten, i got a level one but they are FAST!
    my level five-er almost beat my level fifteen-er arab!!!!

  8. how long does it take to upload stuff on here? Maggie your web is really helpful! ;) keep it up! since i havent been playing sso long this site really helps :P

    • Do you mean how long for me to make new posts? It really depends. I have to play the game and screen shot every dialogue, then type them all up in a new post later. I do have a full time job outside of the blog, between real life and other things, and also there are over 35 quests on the first day in Dino Valley, it takes some time. I’m actually working on finishing the first post for Dino Valley right now and will have it posted soon! :D

  9. Ugh sleep test tomorrow i have to stay up. or should i say sleep test today.
    dying.
    elbow cramping, new braces and my teeth are killing me, eyes tired of watching two billion movies today…
    sooooo tierd…..
    anyways hope u all are sleeping well XD

  10. the dino skeleton glows in the dark.

  11. Alice Friendside said:

    This may sound a bit dumb, as its possible that the answer is right in front of me. The Fjord seems like a super great horse to me and one of them is already available at level 10. But since they are sold in Hidden Dinosaur Valley, and to get there you need to be level 15. So it has no use for that one to be available at level 10, right?

  12. I found my first snow weasel! I was so happy. XD Then I found another one on my way back. :D
    So far today I’ve collected 7 items, and I still get excited when I find more because I know I’m one step closer to my Fjord.
    Im still only Friendly with the Kallters, but hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be able to continue quests with them. :)
    I ONLY NEED 80 MORE TIL I CAN GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL! :D Yay so happy! ^^

  13. Good news: I’m Liked now! :D
    Bad news: Wait whattttttttt? So I just have to collect MORE stuff? ;_; NOOOOOOOOO!

  14. Would someone do me the favor of saving me from a heart attack and tell me I DO NOT have to find 97 items before I become popular? Yes i did the math. -.-

  15. jamie pinewater said:

    i really want a fjord but i am only level 13. i have been asking in the game but i want to know more about then like what hair style do they come with what prices like normal with tack and level 10 and just are they worth it? can anyone answer some of my questions please

    • SamuraiGirl said:

      The Fjords kinda have black-and-white Mohawk on their manes, and their tails are normal. They look really cool! Normals are just 179 star coins, the specially trained ones are like 980 or so. Tack is awesome, it’s worth keeping because it’s special Kallter tack. It looks awesome. And YES! I have a fjord which I have trained to level 4. He is so worth it. :D I wouldn’t get the lvl 10 one because not only is it pretty pricey, it’s kinda fun to train your horse.

  16. is there a sc code?

  17. Ashley Pandalake said:

    :D its my B-Day
    and does anyone know a god birthday horse? Like an Andalusian, Appaloosa, or Arabian?

    • Ashley Pandalake said:

      good not god xP

    • Happy Birthday! :D
      It’s 12/13/14. This is the last time for a hundred years there’ll be a day in numerical order. o.o
      Arabs are great horses and i always recommend them to anyone looking for a new horse. :)

  18. I have some advice for all of you still collecting trade items to increase your rep:
    Instead of going down the elevator every time you enter the Valley, go down the slope to your right (the one you went down when you were “discovering” Dino Valley). There are a lot of things on the way down. Also look around the elevator in a wide radius. There’s a lot of stuff there, too. :D

  19. OK I need some help. So i’ve pretty much mastered where to find these things:
    icenberry: on bushes
    snow weasel: on ice by icebergs
    icechestnut: on ground in forests
    white fur pelt: on fences
    But where do I find icenpearls? I found one two days ago in the Valley (where you find the vet) on that huge ice things with the ice spikes – i didn’t know you could climb those! – but I haven’t found one since. A little help? ;)

  20. I have a four horses let me list then

    Starter.named.Airrider.he sure is a champ level fiveteen

    Andy.named.winterangel.she is white and sure blends in good with snow.level eight almost level nine

    Einglish throughbred.named.wolfhunter.level five. He sure is a good hunting horse!

    Arabian.named.thunderking.level six. He does make a good running horse!

    Byez guys plz ask to be my friend and yea so byez again!

  22. jamie pinewater said:

    i am thinking about getting a white tinker to go with my black one or a black frizzy named night whisper. i can’t wait for dino vally i think i will wait till i can get the tack set and then explore and train my fjord i can’t wait! thinking of what color to get

  23. jamie pinewater said:

    i hear that sso is adding the snow on the next update! so exited i have never seen it before

  24. A little hint for all of you looking for things to trade in the Valley: Look under the dino’s hands and you will almost always find icenpearls. :3

  25. Hey guys

    G
    Xx

  26. :D
    TWO MORE ITEMS AND I CAN GET MY FJORD!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. I GOT MY FJORD!!!!!!! :D

  28. Nicole Dawnright said:

    Does anyone know what the different levels of knowing people in sso are? I’m friendly right now with the kathaders so I don’t know if i’ll get the horses on the next level or a few more levels later.

  29. Mary Moonhurricane said:

    This helped me so much!! I am getting the new 10,000 star coins from the new shop they have, and this is going to get a couple of these horses

  30. Server down AGAIN? I was so mad after the last time they were down when they said “It should only be a few hours” and it took 3 days. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEEEE tell me it’s not going to happen again!!! I legit raged when I couldn’t get on I was like “SERIOUSLY?” And the thing that bothers me most is they didn’t even post anything on FB about it so it’s like, UHHHHH, DO YOU EVEN KNOW? >..,< DANG ITTTTTTT UGHHHHHH I HATE THE WORLD RIGHT NOW! XD
    Hope you all enjoyed my raging. Now I shall go watch SS videos and grieve over not getting to see my horses (I just bought a Teke and an Oldenburg yesterday and earlier today ;_;)

  31. Nicole Dawnright said:

    Does anyone have any good name ideas for the grey fijord I was thinking of maybe moon beam but other suggestions would be appreciated.

  32. Also, my two cents, since when did anything worth having be easy to get? I’m really tired of the ‘I’ve waited so long! Hand everything to me on a silver platter’ attitude. I understand your frustration. I’ve missed quite a few days of dailies with the Kallters, so I am unable to buy them at the moment. It’s not like you’ll never be able to buy them ever. Sometimes you just have to be persistent and work for the things that you want.

  33. You did in fact say you expect to be able to have them immediately and that it was your “right” to have them immediately. I am not disrespecting you when I say that just because you bought star coins and waited patiently (just like everyone else), that does not make you entitled.

    If you want to leave the blog because you are easily offended, then go ahead. My blog is not a paid service and I do not owe you anything. Also, please note that comments are tracked by IP address, so simply changing your name will not be a ‘fresh start.’ Martyring yourself will not give you any good graces.
