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 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

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.

    I don’t know
    What horse to get a fresain or a Appaloosa?

  2. It depends. Do you like dressage, and do you want a new Appaloosa or an old one?

  3. KendraFlowerbell said:

    Hey guys! As you can see I bought my new shire horse! I named her FrostRain. And I bought 3 of them. The white is Evening Pearl, And the black with the little blaze (on paddock island) is DarkKnight for BATMAN *-* As you know the dapple grey is FrostRain. She is my favorite!

  4. Astrid Mistlord said:

    Is it worth buying a AQH, i’m really tempted to but is it worth it?

    • Yes it is The quarter horses are very fast I now have them all

      • Nadia Northwood said:

        Shires ARE the fastest horses BY FAR!!! I know because I OWN ONE!!! Her name is Rosebelle, and she is my BRAND NEW BABY GIRL!!!

        • Anna dark tree said:

          Umm I beat a lv 15 shire with my fjord horse…. but they are fast but not as fast as the fjord, Morgan and quarter horses

        • Sasha Silverstone said:

          I wouldn’t really say that shires are the fastest. They are big and heavy in life and they are in game. They aren’t the best jumpers either xD

    • Julie Shadowvalley said:

      It depends, American Quarter horses are very fast, and they have beautiful coats and mine is level 15 and so far racing with her, I’ve won, 3nd place in Jorvik Championship and Fort Pinta, and 2nd in Moorland Championship

    • Ritskah (Dashia Queensmith) said:

      To be completely honest with you, I wouldn’t. I have one named Wildfire, I call him ‘Tracer’, the bay one you can get from Fort Pinta, and even though they’re speedy, they can still be beaten in speed by Fjords, Morgans, and Shires. If you’re not going by speed thoug, I’d recommend the new Appaloosas, I have one named Darkdiamond, but I call her ‘Dime’, at Marley’s Farm. They have the same stats and model, yet look better than most of the quarters.

      It’s your decision, but I honestly wouldn’t get one again, even if I wasn’t SC poor… XD

  5. i’m not able to buy horses but i will for my birthday because i’m getting lifetime star rider ^.^

  9. Gosh…it’s been so long since I’ve been on. I apologize, but I’ve been extremely busy with school, sports, boys, etc. :(

  10. Hi, thank you for that website ! So helpfull !!!

    Just wondering… Is it true, are they really going to release Icelandic horses (well… ponies) ? I always thought it was Mustang next. Do you know something about it ?

    • From what i’ve seen, icelandic horses are in the game files. Ive heard there was some mention of them at the end of this weeks star stable show but i havent watched it yet myself to be able to confirm.

      • Hello guys! Yes, there will be Icelandic horses – I watched the star stable show yesterday and right at the end they showed a camera man slipping in and whispering to Matilda: “But don’t mention any questions about the Icelandic horses, we don’t wanna spoil that one yet”. I think they meant to give us a sneak peek because otherwise they would have cut that part out before uploading xD

        • Thank you Maggie and Olivia ! Saw that video too, they obviously made it on purpose.But I didn’t see Icelandic things on the game files, though… =/
          It kinda is a shame though, I always had rather horses than ponies (unless those ones can gallop a little bit faster =P)

          Anyway, thank you very much for your fast answer !

  11. I love this game it’s awesome😘

  12. I agree! And no problem c;

  13. Anyone want to help me confirm the location of the horse trainer on Epona? I haven’t had much time to play, lately.

    • Hmmm… I’m not sure, but I know I saw a horse trainer in epona! I think it might be either behind/next to the New Hillcrest Stable, OR I think I saw one near the paddocks in New Hillcrest (the place with the roads and houses etc.).
      Hope this helped, and I will double check today or tomorrow to confirm the location of the horse trainer.
      – Liv x

  14. Im really stuck whether to get a morgan,fjord or wait until a new horse is created :| I would love a new horse but i dont know what one to get

  16. Zoe oakwatcher said:
