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 Marley’s Farm, New Hillcrest, 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.

The horse trainer can also teach you how to lead your horse once you reach level 10. The skill costs 135 star coins to be able to use. Once you buy it, you will have it for life, even if your star rider access expires.

Once purchased, dismount your horse and stand next to its head. A little button will appear next to your minimap. Click it and you will start leading your horse. Remember, your horse must always be wearing a bridle, since you will need to have something to lead it by!

Jorvik Pony

The typical Jorvik Pony has a sunny disposition but can be a single-minded, mischievous and stubborn little horse. It has short legs, resulting in a lower overall height, and a more prominent head than most horses. 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.

Jorvik Ponies come in many different colors.

Note: Remember that ponies are not as fast as other horses.

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


Chincoteague Pony

This unusual pony has a truly mysterious and sad history. From Assateague Island, spread across the two states of Maryland and Virginia in the USA, the Chincoteague has lived and developed in peace and freedom for many generations. How they got there in the first place is a mystery, but theory has it that today’s Chincoteague are descended from the horses travelling upon a Spanish galleon which sank off the island in the 16th century.

Life on the island has never been easy. Not much grazing, terrible storms, and heavy inbreeding have all combined to almost eradicate the little population. Crossing with Shetland and Welsh ponies have strengthened the breed, and contributions from the public, as well as efforts from the local fire brigade have all worked to make the Chincoteague strong and viable again.

The Chincoteague still live wild on their island, but once a year they’re gathered together and a select few colts are auctioned off. The proceeds from the auction go towards caring for and protecting the herd.

Of course it didn’t take long for the horse lovers of Jorvik to bring the beautiful Chincoteague to the island, and this hardy, intelligent, and easy-to-train horse is very much loved.

Note: Remember that ponies are not as fast as other horses.

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

Fjord Horse

Fjord horses are small but very strong, with a very special mane which is often to be found cut into cool patterns. 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

Restrictions: Player level 15

Please note!

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.


American Quarter Horse

There are more than 3 million Quarter Horses in the world, making them the largest horse breed in the world by population. This hugely popular American horse gets its name from being incredibly fast over short distances: there are very few horses able to beat a Quarter Horse in races shorter than a quarter of a mile.

The breed has its origins in the British Warmbloods introduced to North America by the colonists and pilgrims in the 1600s. They were crossed with other breeds, such as the Chickasaw horse as well as more ‘classic’ breeds like the Arabian fullblood. 

The Quarter Horse is a steady and balanced horse with a calm temperament which is perfectly suited to hobby riding, competitive riding, and use as a work horse. Quite simply a fantastic all-rounder!

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


Shire Horse

The Shire horse is one of the biggest horse breeds in the world. With a height that can pass five and a half feet or 1.7 meters, they’re majestic, but in spite of their size, they’re known for their calm and friendly temperament. Even more characteristically, they’re known for their heavy feathering at the fetlock.

As well as being big, the Shire is also strong, and it’s said that it can pull up to five and a half tons without a problem. This made the Shire horse a popular warhorse in the middle ages, as it could carry a soldier wearing heavy armor. As knights’ armor began to disappear, the Shire became more and more widely used as a workhorse. Now those days are gone, the Shire horse is most popularly known as a parade and draft horse.

Icelandic Horse

It was in the late 1300s that the Icelandic Horse was first brought to Jorvik by one of Iceland’s great horse breeders, Jokul Tómasson. Jokul had, together with his daughter Brynhildur, spent many years in the Ottoman Empire, working for the wealthy trader Asil Birdal. When Ottoman Emperor Murad I died in the summer of 1389, Jokul and Brynhildur decided to leave.

Since the 10th Century, it has been forbidden to return Icelandic Horses to Iceland once they’ve already left, so Jokul and Brynhildur would have had to leave their beloved horses behind if they were to return to their homeland. This could never be an option for them, and so they decided to take their horses to Jorvik one snowy wintery day at the end of 1389. 

The Icelandic Horse quickly became very popular amongst the islanders and are used today for both leisure riding as well as competitive racing. Of all the wonderful qualities that make the Icelandic unique, the most famous has to be its special gait. In addition to the usual walking styles, the Icelandic Horse also has a unique gait called the ‘tölt.’

To be able to tölt, hold down Shift at the same time as increasing your speed from a walking pace.

  1. Hey I’m new here

  2. Hi guys… I’ve got quite a strange dilemma. Usually you’d have people asking what name should they give to a particular horse, but me, being my weird self, am asking the opposite. I have created a really nice name and scrolled through the horse guide, but I don’t know – which horse will it suit??? Any ideas are welcome! The name is: Sienna dream. Thanks in advance,
    Livvvvvvv xx

  3. Hmm, yeah I was thinking about the golden Arabian, but I already have a name for ig… I think Sienna will be a good name for the chestnut selle français in Valedale. Thank you for your advice though!!! What server are you on? :)

    • Sienna Goldhaven said:

      My name is Sienna Gldhaven on SSO so I think it is a little weird that I can have a horse as my name xD

  4. The silver one…? What breed? XD And I was thinking more chestnut/brown. :P

  5. Allison Northbrooke said:

    Hey, I am buying my first Icelandic horse but I have no idea which colour to get! I think I am stuck between the grey and chestnut. Please help!! <3<3

  6. Hi Guys! Im thinking of getting an Arab for my Champs, but Im torn between an Arabian or a Tovero? I don’t want any more ‘Big’ Horses as I already have 6. What do you think? I love both breeds but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them online? Tia!

    • Allison Northbrooke said:

      I have the bay Arabian and I love him! Arabians are quite fast. However, I found that the American Paint Horse (Tovero) was better for racing, easier to jump and faster. I hope this helped! Good luck with your Champs!

  7. Allison Northbrooke said:

    Along with my dilemma about which colour of Icelandic to get, I can’t decide between the two new Appaloosa horses. They are both so cute! Name ideas would be appreciated, for either Icelandic or Appaloosa.

    • echoespartan said:

      I think you should get the black Appaloosa because the markings are so unique :D But I think (in my view) it would be between original or exotic. But you’re right! It’s so hard to choose one when they are both so adorable :P

  8. So I’m not sure whether to get the piebald tinker or one of the bay north Swedish horses
    What would you say?

  9. Hey guys
    I’ve created a new website so I would really appreciate it if you guys checked it out.
    Also, exciting news. I’M GETTING LIFETIME THIS AFTERNOON. I also get 3000 sc. I’m gonna get the grey shire, the chocolate morgan with the silver mane and tail and the skewbald icelandic. Any suggestions on names?

    • Astrid Mistlord said:

      Hey Leia, i looked at your website :) it’s nice. As for the names, i usually make one with something to do with the horses colour and what personality it’ll have.
      For the Shire maybe something with silver or light?
      Storm or lightning would suit the Morgan’s colour since it’s dark with a light mane and tail.
      For the Skewbald Icelandic, i think anything would go nice with it.

      Hope this helped.

  10. Astrid Mistlord said:

    Any suggestions on a good horse to get for show jumping?

  11. Hi! Thanks for the help. I agree that the name would suit the palomino Icelandic, and I am planning on getting al the icelandics when I save up so I think that’s the one!
    I don’t know though, which name suits the palomino ice better: Sienna dream OR Honey beam???
    P.S What server are u on? Maybe we could meet up? :D

  12. i have a list of names here (all warrior cat ones, naturally!) nd i need breeds for them



    • I think that silverstream would be good for the dapple grey shire or
      Sandstorm for a palomino quarter perhaps
      And firestar for the chestnut andy
      Hope this helps

    • Nellie Seagarden said:

      Omg, you you read warrior cats Crystal? If you do please reply

    Whqt is going to be the newest newest horse?

  14. alexis rose said:

    what is the fastest horse im looking for which to level up for champs

  15. Hey guys!
    So for those of you who need a Championship horse I would seriously recommend a Morgan or if your lvl 16 an Icelandic horse. If you wanna win it doesn’t really matter which horse. It mostly depends on how good your racing skills are. If you have a super fast horse but you can’t race, you won’t win.
    I hope this helps!

  16. Hey!
    For all those people who need a champ horse I would recommend a Morgan or if you are lvl 16 and up an Icelandic! I have a Morgan and almost win every champ with her. Although it actually doesn’t matter which horse you are racing with! If you are super fast but don’t know how to race, you won’t win! If you already have a Morgan or Icelandic and want something new, how about one of the older ones? AQH are also known for their speed and Fjords are also seriously fast!
    I hope this helps! 😉

  17. Hey guys!
    I would really appreciate your help!
    I feel in love with the Chestnut Anda and don’t have a name! Any ideas?

    Also I want to get the two new Icelandics! The white one (snowdrop) and the blond one. Should I name it Sandstorm Sundrop to fit Snowdrop?
    Pls help!

  18. Isabelle Mistberg said:

    I need help finding a horse…It has to be a darker shade of grey, because all of my horses except for my morgan, are lighter shades or patterned. I’ve been running around Jorvik restlessly trying to decide :P I’m planning on naming it Silverwings. Any suggestions?

    • Hi! I would say the dark grey Icelandic would be pretty cool! And if you haven’t unlocked them yet, how about the dark grey American quarter horse?
      Hope this helped! :D

  19. Astrid Mistlord said:

    I’ve come up with a name but need a horse that suits it. The name’s Lemoncrush, any suggestions?

  22. Any fast-ish horses that are good at dressage and jumping I’m kinda looking for an eventer

    • Hey guys,
      I’ve been having trouble getting into Epona. So I got up to the bit where I’m supposed to race out of G.E.D and go to the other guy, and I do the race and just before the finish I hear a chomping sound, like when the shark eats your horse in Fort Pinta, and then it says that I am in an closed area and that I will be moved home. Next thing I know, a picture of a sky-lift comes up, saying that my horse is badly hurt and then I’m transported to Maria’s observatory. It’s so frustrating because I really want to unlock Epona. Has this happened to you guys? Can you help me? I contacted SSO support team yesterday but they haven’t replied.

  23. Alejandra Mooseberg said:

    I really want the palomino Icelandic. She’s so adorable! Saving up. So far 515 star coins – 5 more weeks :L Unless I can get my mom to buy me 500 star coins.

    • It’s double star coin weekend so maybe you could get one of the cheaper options?
      But I agree. The palamino Icelandic is adorable. I was thinking of getting the white Icelandic but I’ve only got 20sc!!!

  24. Awesome I love this it helps me decide what horse to get next!

  25. Lizbeth Mountainside said:

    I’m so sorry I haven’t been active on this blog, or really any of the other SSO blogs I’m usually on. Star Stable is still not working from me, and the truth is, I really miss it. So I’m kinda just trying to put it behind me and move on to something new.
    Speaking of new, I’ve started a new blog for teen girls! Here’s the link:
    I’d love if you guys would check it out and let me know what you think! I really miss communicating with you guys and playing SS. Hopefully they’ll fix my problem soon.
    On another note, I just want to warn those who are planning on looking at my new blog that some of the content is very personal and may be triggering.
    Miss you all! <3

  26. Hey guys! I really want the black and white Frisian Sport Horse but I can’t decide between these two names! The first one is…….
    1) Lovesong
    2) Moonsister

    I really don’t know!
    Pls help! ❤

  27. God it’s so hard!

  28. Bora Pinkpaw said:

    Should i buy fjord?
    If yes, which one? :-)

    • Yes, you should totally get a fjord because they’re so fast and cold tolerant and they come with awesome tack!. I would get the grey one (top right) because it’s so cute. If you wanted one already trained to level 10, you should totally get the turbo one.

  29. Samantha Longgarden said:

    Can you do the Fjord horses out of snow? Please & thank you

    • I just took pictures of the sale horses in dino valley. Getting pictures of them out of the snow woukd require organizing together people who own one of each. Its something ive been considering, so maybe some day :)
