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.

    hey guys what arab should i get

  2. Thanks for the rd code Ariana ;) I would get the black arab. It is so beautifull <3 I have the paint arab but the colors dont fit me anymore .

    I have this massively massive awesome plan. I’m going to buy THREE new horses. A black and white Fezzy Sport, the grullo Frezzy Sport, and the palomino andalusian. Anyone who has these horses want to give them a quick reveiw for me?

    • I don’t currently have them, but I have had all 3 in the past. They are all incredible horses that I really loved but unfortunately a while back I was hacked and forced to start a new account. :( I haven’t bought them after that, but they were all great. :)

  4. what should i buy the 4rth swedish or the 6 swedish

  5. I have the durabel saddle and shiny bridle at the moment, but I feel so slow. What tack is your favourite and fastest ;)?

    • My fave tack set (also because it looks great on all horses!) is the Moorland saddle, Moorland bridle, red pro blanket, red tail and/or head bow, and red leg wraps. I LOVE IT and use it for my Arab, Frezzy, North Swedish, Morgan, and starter (aka ALL my horses). I love it and if I had to give away every tack set except one, that’s the one I’d keep. :3

    • I love my Swedy (the one I got from Fort) and I’m really kind of ticked off that you tried to make it look like a bad horse, when it’s really not. You’re entitled to your opinion, but just please try not to offend others who have the horse.
      Thanks! :)

    An awesome tack set for racing is the Moorland saddle and bridle with the large night or large snow blanket, as they have the same stats. You can also replace the Moorland saddle with the ergonomic saddle if you think it works better. You can look at their stats in-game or on this site (
    Hope that helps! :3

  7. I am commenting again. I bought the North Swedish horse horse at the winery. She is gorgeous and I thought i had to buy it from golden. Figures i dont have to cause its at fp and winery!

  8. Great! I realy want the North swedish :) Im gonna choose between the new horse and the North swedish sooo I cant wait for the update!

  9. Why isn’t there a sneakpeek yet?! ;-;

  10. To all you guys think about getting a new horse: I recommend the North Swedish horse from The Vineyard (Silverglade Equestrian Center). Not only is it a beautiful fall-ish color, but it is a BEAUTIFUL horse in all. I got the North Swedish (original) from Valedale (the lighter one) and I recently purchased the one from The Vineyard and let me just say, the new one is a wonderful jumper and has incredible speed for just buying it and being it a level 1. Imagine what he/she will be like at level 5.. or level 9.. or level 15! Personally, I would go with the new, light colored North Swedish horse from The Vineyard, not Fort Pinta. My friend got that one and said when she entered races and such (especially in Firgrove), he was incredibly slow and wouldn’t jump (and her computer wasn’t ‘laggy’ or whatever.)

    Hoped this helped :)

    • Actually, all horses, no matter what color, in a single breed have the same jumping/strength and stuff. You may have just had faster tack, in that case, because I got the one from Fort and won 2nd in Fort race with him being level 1. So I don’t know if you’re just partial to the lighter one or whatever, but that’s not true. The breed stats are the same, regardless of color.

    • I love my Swedy (the one I got from Fort) and I’m really kind of ticked off that you tried to make it look like a bad horse, when it’s really not. You’re entitled to your opinion, but just please try not to offend others who have the horse.
      Thanks. :)

    i have 600 star coins so far and i want to buy the buckskin north Swedish and the paint pony. I’m also looking forward to buying the black Arabian. now here is the problem:
    1. should i wait for 2080 star coins and buy all three horses all together.
    2. buy each horse individually.
    3. buy 1000 star coins for £20 and buy the Arabian right away.

    please tell me what to do…

    • Personally, I find that buying them separately helps me, because when I’m in possession of SC too long, I start spending and spending. If I buy the horses an evenly spaced amount of time apart, I get time to train and get to know that horse before I’m ready for the next one. :)

  12. Well you cant realy buy a WRONG horse I always say to myself. I would buy the arab first because it is beautifull and a great racing horse ;) <3

  13. Hello mini-world of Maggie Old-camp fans! ..OK that sounded a little weird. XD Anyway, I decided to do my first comment suggestion-thing on Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur!! :D When I first found out about a new area, I already knew because of 2 reasons:
    1. Me and my friend were exploring around the hidden UFO, when I found something strange. We were not close to Golden and super close to Valedale and Firgrove mountains, and a rock had a invisible wall. This was strange because there was only a ditch beyond it, and I got into Genius Mode and remembered Nic… so yea XD
    2. In the interview with Marcus almost 2 years ago, they mentioned opening Harvest Counties and, well lets just call it DV. Soo yea I kinda knew :P
    Anyway, We only get 1 new place a year, or so I hope that continues! This is huge news for Role-players, Questers, Explorers, this is a big thing for Jorvikians alike!
    And even with the fact its very polished, so many new secret areas and just well, AREAS! Im also very excited about the new fossil/archaeology function, but I hope it wont turn into a bother with reputation quests like fishing did. Im also slightly annoyed people are saying “well why is it ‘Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur’ if there’s no dinosaurs?” I dont why, it just does. :/ Okay prediction time: (SPOILERS!!! BEWARE) 1. It might be to soon, but I hope Anne gets rescued from Pandoria, but I hope they let you actually go on a rescue mission! I loved going into Pandoria in the prequels, but they’re sorta old. I would love to see it new and remodeled! Also I hope this happens because personally I think Annes awesome :3 2. Hopefully we get more in-depth for Justin’s rescue, because he is my favorite male character! Maybe we can see more into what the letter Sabine told you to give Justin early in the game, or see what the line he said in Dark Core meant: “My memory is a little foggy…” -Justin “Ah, your old memories don’t matter anymore” -Mr.Sands I think, my opinion, is that they altered his memories to believe he was always evil. 3. (this one is more of a side quest one) Hopefully we can see Nic again, maybe even why he was so crazy to even THINK about Dinosaurs still existing. Well, this has been LONGGGG but of course, its SUCH a big topic! So excited X3


    • Also, forgot to mention, if I made a mistake or something, PLEASE tell me! XD

      Also dont forget to have a nice day! :S

    • Uhhh nice commenting. LOL I just um…never read the stuff they say in quests cause I’m always in a hurry to just FREAKING LEVEL UP and get the quest done and over with, so unfortunately, I don’t understand a word you said. XD :(
      To all new SSO players – DO NOT make the same mistake I did! READ THE STUFF THE CHARACTERS ARE SAYING IN QUESTS! You will kick yourself forever (like me) if you don’t!!!!!

      • I made that mistake too… XD luckily I kinda got into it after I got my membership, because it got GOOD there! XD Also, happy 6th anniversary! How do you have so many horses?!? Ive been playing for around 3 years and Ive only owned around 8 or 9! Of course I have to save up since I have NOOO MONEY and I had to switch accounts one time! -.- Yet I still keep going back, becuse SSO is such a great game! :3 Also now Im just saving up for the orange pony at the horse market, the brown and black pony at Jarlasson, the black and white pony st Golden, OR the super shiny brown Selle Francis! Which one should I get???

  14. Just want to say… YAY! It’s my 6-month anniversary of playing SSO (Yes, I keep track; so what?) and during that time, I have owned 17 horses, been in 3 clubs, and had tons of friends. I love this game so much!
    Thanks especially to my friend Sophia Flowerfield, the owner of Forest Racers Fellowship, the club that, no matter why I leave, I always come back to. Sophia…you’ve made my half year with SS a great one! <3
    I'd also like to thank Maggie:
    Thanks so much for all the hard work you put into this site. I don't know what I'd do without it; I'd be so lost! :) I just want you to know that all the effort you put into this is well worth it by helping people like me grow in knowledge about this game, whether it's by telling how much each horse is, to helping with quests. I would still be on level 10 if it weren't for you! THANKS SO MUCH!
    P.S. Thanks also to all you people who leave nice comments about things I say; it brightens my day to see that someone likes my opinions and agrees with me. This site and SS go together like ice cream and chocolate sauce! Thanks again everyone!
    P.P.S. If any of you are feeling nice, please look at my friend's YouTube account – she would love it! (Sophia Flowerfield) :D

    • My name on SS is Lizbeth Mountainside … look me up! ;D
      Also, my 14th birthday is Nov. 22…. Got any ideas for new horses to get (besides the new one coming out)? :P

      • And no, my real name is not Sarafina. I’ve been asked that a lot… XD It’s Elizabeth (Liz [Lizbeth on SS]). :P

  15. And SS… how about a day when we get 3x the XP from races? It’d be a real help…! XD

  16. Does anyone know the new horse coming out? Please be Fjords…..please be fjords……..

  17. No fjords. Not even a new horse :( God,
    Sso! You are maby making it a little to long now? D: Oh Well, it will probably be a great horse if it takes long. Hopefully next week?

  18. Safrina happy 6 month aniversary! :) My 8 months is coming soon to :D If you havent got a paint yet, I would recomend it!

      I will try getting some new Arabs. I love them – they’re great racers.
      Thanks for the tips! :)
