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.

  7. Hey guys, so, uh, Im getting a Frizzy soon, and, I dont know what tack to get it! It looks good in everything.. O_O Im leaning on the Winery set, but….. its SOOOOOO expensive! Whaa should I do??

  8. Jenny Orangeheart said:

    I loooove the blue saddle from the druid shop, the darkblue westernbridle and lila pro blanket :) I have the purple legwraps from jarla and white bows. It looks so cute

  9. For the tack.

  10. That’s IT? “Hey, here’s the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur! Enjoy it.” o.o NO NEW HORSES? Ok, it’s been, what, three weeks since they announced Dino Valley, and a month since they announced a new breed! WTF?

    • I don’t mean to sound ungrateful – I looked forward to the Valley for a long time. But I also really looked forward to the new breed. And it’s been almost a month, and not even so much as a sneak peek? It makes you wonder if they forgot. -.-

      • Anastasia Catstorm said:

        I am also a bit disappointed… I thought for sure they would release the new breed, it just makes little sense. I ended up buying a North Swedish today(I had saved to buy the new breed, but planned on buying the buckskin North Swedish if it didn’t come today). I do love Dino valley, though I was getting a bit frustrated with all the people crowding around Nic stoneground. Some people didn’t even seem to do anything but hang out near him, blocking him. Please everybody, if you aren’t actively doing your quests with him, move away from him so other people can access him who need him. lol

  11. I am currently fixing the elevator to use upon exiting and entering the Valley. I haven’t explored even a small bit of the Valley – only the area I had to come down and the place where the control room is – and I can already tell Dino Valley is gonna be a lot of fun, and it will also supply me some well needed bonding time with my NS, Hawkeye. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. :3

  12. About to meet up with Elizabeth (my fave character; she has the same name as me lol) in the Valley. :D I’m really glad they so far haven’t had any quests that are “wait until tomorrow” quests for the Dino Valley! Of course, there might be some further along the way, but let’s hope not. :P Hawkeye is really enjoying the nice cold weather…. I’ll be riding him a lot more in the future due to the extreme temperatures of Dino Valley, and he hasn’t been getting ridden much anyway, so this is a treat for him (he’s the newISH NS from Fort Pinta).
    I gtg for dinner, but I’ll be back on later. CAN’T WAIT! >.< :D

    • Anastasia Catstorm said:

      Just be aware that when you get to Nic’s quests, it might be a bit difficult to click on him. It may have dissipated by now, but this morning it was like a feeding frenzy around him. I almost gave up, but I stayed persistant and got it done. lol

      • Doing that right now and yeah, I noticed. XD

      • And nice to meet you. Glad to be on your Friends list. :)
        Everyone, just in case anyone reading this wants to meet me, I’m Lizbeth Mountainside, and I’m usually on around 7 pm Central US time. SEND ME MAIL OR FRIEND INVITES! XD
        And as for the Valley of the Hidden Dino…IT IS AMAZING! I won’t spoil it for all of you who have yet to unlock it, but…OMG!!!!!!!!!!

      • Is he holding a floating refrigerator on a leash? lol

        • I saw that to! What was it?? xD me and my friend are big roleplayers, so we were HYPED! And, besides our timelines,mwe got to explore it together! :3 unfortunately she had to go before we could start.. D:

        • I WAS GONNA SAY…”AM I SEEING THINGS?” Apparently not. XD

  13. Does Popular come after Liked? Please tell me it does! -.-‘

  14. omg I realy need sc now D: many people say 1 december is double sc, but does anyone know exactly when it will be? Usually it is around the 20s so why is everyone saying it is 1 Dec? ;-; AND OMG MOCKINJAY PART 1 <3 I am going to watch it with my bff this sunday omgggg :D

    • I’m going to see it tomorrow (Friday)! :P And actually, double SC is usually in the middle of the month, so it should be this week or next week. :D

  15. Yes! We have a sneak peak of the new breed and confirmation that it is the FJORD! Woohoo! I still have 550sc after buying the North Swedish and they will be coming out December 10th so I will have about 750sc by then. Hopefully they are around that ballpark. Check it out on the news section of the star stable site! I just don’t know if I want to buy the dun, or the ulsblakk dun(grey dun). I’ll eventually buy all of them, though, hehe. So excited!

  16. Arvella Kingbear said:

    I never comment, but I’m so excited! We finally saw a sneak peak and a release date! FJORDS! I hope they’re around the same price as the Northerns, but I doubt it. Luckily I have 3500 star coins right now, so I’ll buy one when they come out and wait for the other colors to see which one(s) I like the most. I do really doubt though that they’ll be cheap like the Northern Swedish horses. The Northern Swedish Horses are most likely cheap because people “need” them to go into Dino valley. I’m predicting they’ll be around the ball park of 890 or higher.

  17. FJORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    OH MY GOD I JUST SCREAMED OUT LOUD WHEN I SAW THAT OMG!!!!!!!!!!

    • thought you would XD I literally have 0 sc tho.. :'(

    • Arvella Kingbear said:

      Which do you plan on buying first? The Grey Dun and/or the Brown Dun?

      • Grey Dun!!! :D :P :D :D :D :D DECEMBER CANT COME QUICK ENOUGHHHHHHH D:

        • Ashley Pandalake said:

          I would choose the brown dun it’s so flipping adorable!

        • Arvella Kingbear said:

          It really can’t, but it’s better than not at all! I just wish we could have the horses to play with over the school break, but I’m happy with the release date already. I’m thinking of getting the brown dun, I love the grey dun too but when I think of Fjords, the brown dun comes to mind.

  18. im not a fjord person, but I’m so happy for u guys

  19. but next horse better b a rocky mountain!!!
    link:

  20. ya u can delete that

  21. Hi, please tell me where you can buy a Fjord. Where can you buy a Fjord? Fjords a beautiful! I liked Fjords. (sorry for my bad English, I can not good English)

    Bye, Isabel Silvermountain

  22. Ashley Pandalake said:

    Which Frisian sprit horse should I get? I don’t want the Oreo one because of my opinion…
    OR should I wait for the fjord as a Christmas gift for myself (I just realized that made no sense lol)

    • Arvella Kingbear said:

      Wait for the Fjord, and then decide. You don’t want to buy the Friesian sport and then regret it

  23. Nicole Dawnright said:

    Which North Swedish Horse should I get? I really like them all and I can’t decide D:!!

    • Arvella Kingbear said:

      If I were you, I’d go to Dino valley and see them. People are riding them around, and you’ll get a better idea since they’re wearing tack and different hair styles

  24. soooo many expeditions XD Calm down Nic, calm down XD

  25. I’m already finished with the quests ;)

  26. the animation in dino vally is probably the best they have done so far, besides golden hills and maybe ssr. I am in love with the forests also, the tall trees are just so perfect! and for screenshots, I already took fifty. The only problem with dino vally is that i can’t tell where I am because everything is so foggy and white and ya.
    but other than that it is seriously amazing! and I can’t wait to meet the new people, they make me think of avatar. spoiler: And the “strange horses!” I hope they will be unicorns XP

  27. Found out how to put pictures! (I think)
    The amazing fjord I want:

    https://www.starstable.com/gfx/news/203/xfjord2.jpg.pagespeed.ic.RUDCxPMNqw.webp

  28. Bday tomorrow, and I might get 1000 SC. Meaning I’ll have 1,301 coins. I want to get a horse that is under 700 coins so I will still have enough for the Fjords. Or should I just save to get both the Fjords? LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! :)

    • see the fjords first; they might be releasing more then 2! lucky, i currently have EXACTLY 1,100 SC………. in the end ill have 1,300! :3

    • Get the chestnut Morgan, it is the BEST for everything, I know the stats say different but I won 3 championships with him on levels 1-3

  29. Nighty night! :3

  30. I am such a fjord person look here :3

  31. why well i own one before i had to sell it to mah cousin her name was shiningstar she was a beauitful mare cant wait for fjord horse update good night to all! :D

  32. Where could I find a large snow blanket, night riding bridle and white leg wraps??? Help

  33. Hi! Who can tell me where in Star Stable you can buy a Fjord? (sorry for my bad English, I am Netherlands and I can not good English)

  34. i just fell off the big mountain in fur grove and velendale, like, literally from the top, ended up near the river, AND SURVIVED

  35. omg :D :D

  36. Hey guys! So I had 1,301 coins today, and I was maybe gonna save them all, but then I decided if I got both Fjords at once, I’d never be able to choose which one to ride anyway. So I got a Westphalian and named him Carrotcake. I’m not really one for choosing horses based on their stats, and I just loved his color, and he was so cute…! XD They’re actually really good horses. :)
    Anywho…yeah. Happy Birthday to me…? XD I feel really selfish right now…. :3

  37. does anyone know when the snow starts? and also are there better horses for snow, like, north sweedies better than jorvik ponies IDK

    • Nicole Dawnright said:

      It will most likely be on Dec. 10th. We already know it’s the new release date for the new horses so it will also probably bring snow. But the snow that covers the map doesn’t affect your horse unlike in Dino.

  38. Luna Starhall said:

    Snow will most likely arrive to Jorvik sometime around Christmas, and unlike in Hidden Dinosaur Valley the cold or snow does not affect your horse, regardless of the breed.
