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.

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

-Cold tolerant

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!

    Anyone know what the fastest horse is one SSO? I think its the Fjord but I’m not too sure :)

    • Oooh good question! I think the speed of the horses depends on not just the horse, but your gear and clothing, aswell as a good mood and high level.
      The Fjords appear slow, but they are actually extremely fast. In fact, before the Quarters came out they were considered the fastest horse on SSO. The Quarters are considered the fastest, as due to many ‘proof’ videos, a level 12 Quarter is faster than a level 15 Paint Horse (the original ones). Then the new Morgans came out and now they seem to be faster than Quarters, though no actual proof has been released. I feel the Quarters are faster than most breeds because visually, because their body is longer than other breeds, they seem to almost get to a place quicker due to almost stretching in a way. They also jump a lot higher and can jump further. Morgans now, are beating the Quarters for some reason. I feel like SSO need to slow them down a little, as they did with Quarters.
      Overall, the fastest breeds are probably the Quarters, Morgans and Fjords, though Arabians are still quick and agile.
      I think it’s also up to the way you run a course or championship, that determines if you win. Like, you’re not going to win a championship if you race badly, even if you have a level 15 quarter!
      I say all breeds are good for racing and fast in their own way. Arabians are agile, Quarters are great racing horses and jump higher, Morgans are just fabulous, Friesians have amazing dressage gaits, all horses are amazing in their own way.
      Sorry for the long comment but I hope this helped! :)

        Here goes:
        I want to have a Fjord, because they are SUPER adorable. Yet I already have my North Horse, Lemonkiss, so… it doesn’t seem worth it. I also want a quarter, but I ALSO want a new, different morgan than the black and white one I have, Onyxcloud. BUT I also want a Fresian, because they look so cool and mysterious. BUT Andalusians have more varied colors and the same stats, so should I get them? ARGHHHHHH!!!
        Can anyone help me?

        • i just got the black and white and i have ten horses with trhree shipped to horse island and i am level ate so im nowhere close to getting fjord but a REALLY want one:(

        • Ok so, first off,
          GET A FJORD.
          AND A FRIESIAN.
          Fjords and Friesians are so unique and beautiful, you NEED at least one of each in your stall because Fri’s are amazingly beautiful and lovely dressage horses, and Fjords are chubby and adorable and FAST.
          So I say save up for those two, and after that, you decide if you want the Morgan or Quarter! :D

      • I won the moor champ before with a level 2 Quarter Horse :O
