Horses sell for more money with the latest changes, and your Training level is affecting that number a lot. Let's see exactly how Training works in this guide, as well as taming, breeding & exchanging.
Training is not the most popular lifeskill like cooking and fishing, or processing, the popular money-maker. There is no doubt that training can be interesting because there are a lot of trainers, who really love their hobby with horses. But why? It can be more than just the profit (which is very important), since the game has built a fantastic and immersive world around horses.
At the end of this beautiful story, we can awaken our own Tier 9 & Tier 10 Dream Horses, and we can reach the sky! But I don’t want to get ahead of myself, so let’s start at the beginning!
Table of Contents
If you don’t want to walk across the whole map on foot, you can ride a horse and save a lot of time with it. If you don’t have a horse, you can buy one from the Horse Market, which is found at the Stable Keeper. If you don’t want to spend money on it, you can tame a horse as well.
When you already have your own horse, you can train it to lvl 30 or lvl 100. Higher level horses usually have more skills and can run faster. The mount gets EXP from the traveled distance. It is important to note that horses only progress to level 30 in terms of their stats and abilities, above that although they level up, they do not receive any bonuses. Above level 30, of course, you will gain additional training EXP for every level-ups, but its main function is to keep away the monsters from attacking and from killing the horse as its level increases.
When the horse is leveling up, there is a chance to obtain a new skill. Every horse has its own inventory, where you can store your items. The mount’s inventory is limited though, and if it’s too heavy, your horse will slow down and it won’t be able to use its skills.
If you should leave your horse alone, be sure that there aren’t any mobs near your horse, because they can kill it! The safest place for a horse is a town, so if you are grinding make sure to leave it in a safe area without monster spawns too close!
In the Pearl Shop, there are a lot of useful items for horses, for example, the Horse Flute, which allows you to call your horse within a 500m range, or also you can buy a Celestial Calling Horn* without range criteria. There are also various cosmetic gears, which also add tiny buffs to your horse’s speed, turn, etc. The sky is the limit, where sky means wallet. 😶
At the loyalties store, we can find some stuff for horses too. For example, we can purchase carrots if we need a few urgently. There are Mount Name Changing Coupons as well, or Extra Life EXP Scrolls.
*: A Celestial Calling Horn is also available without spending Pearls: by processing (L) Trainer’s Flute (Permanent) and Celestial Horse’s Tears. There is a daily quest that available once per family and rewards you with Celestial Horse’s Tears. This quest can be obtained from Erfianso, the node manager of Atanis Pond, and you should repeat it for 15 or 30 days (based on your training skill). The dividing line is below and above Artisan 1 level, collect the x30 Atanis Confection, exchange them into a Celestial Horse’s Tear x1 by a quest, and process the Flute and the Tear into a Calling Horn. The daily quests require the following items: Hand over Sweet Honey Wine x1, Oil of Fortitude x10, Fruit of Enchantment x30, and an Energy Potion (Extra Large) x1.
If you want to tame a horse, you will need Capturing Ropes and Lump of Raw Sugar in your inventory.
You can buy ropes from the Stable Keeper for 1,500 Silver each, and one successful taming needs one rope. At the end of the minigame, you should give Lump of Raw Sugar(s) to the horse, but it’s not necessary.
The taming can be failed, in which case, you should try again. Beyond that, you need to be level 20 or above.
Ways to get Lump of Raw Sugar:
There are many different spots where you can find 1-4 wild horses. Their respawn time is 2 hours, and their tier is random. If you want to catch more horses, it’s useful to change servers on the spot.
There is a website, where you can check the wild horse locations. Open the page and select the Horse/Mounts option.
It’s always worth considering how far the Stable Keeper is when you’re choosing a location, cause you should use him to register the wild horses you tame.
Of course, popularity is also important. When I tamed horses, I chose Drieghan, because it’s less popular. In the other hand, if you plan to store many horses, choose a place near cities where you can buy extra Horse Ranches.
The linked map doesn’t show the wild horse locations near Duvencrune yet, but we have included them below for you:
The wild horses are between Tier 1 and 5. From their appearance, you can tell their tier (when you get used to them of course).
The gender of the horse and its skills are unknown before you register it.
First of all, the My Little First Pony quest from Vanacil is a good way to learn how to catch a horse.
When you successfully tamed a horse, you should register it at the closest stable. You don’t need to ride the wild horse for the whole distance, you can use your own horse, the wild horse will just follow you. Just don’t forget to ride the wild horse at least once! Only one wild horse can follow you at a time.
If you and your wild horse arrived near the Stable Keeper, select the Stable option. The “Register Wild Horse” button will appear. Here you can check its gender, and you must choose a name for the horse.
After when you give a name for it (in the future, you can change your horse’s name with a Mount Name Changing Coupon from the Pearl Shop), you can check the horse’s skills. The wild horse can be between lvl 1 and 10, and it will have a few skills depending on each tier & color. So it can turn out to a courser too!
There is a lot of Stable Keepers in each city, who offer you free stable spaces. If it’s not enough for you, you can expand it and use Horse Ranches for CP.
The Horse Ranches:
If you don’t need the ranches anymore, you can sell them, and you will receive the CPs that you used. Between stables, you can use transfer which costs 100,000 Silver. Also, there are additional options to store the horses, for example, you can send them to your ALTs.
It’s all about selling your mounts, and there’s two ways to go about it:
1. Sell it on the Horse Market. This is determined by the system. There is a tax of course, and the money that you receive is influenced by your Training Level (as well as the tax amount).
In fact, female horses usually have higher prices than male ones. You can open the Horse Market from a Stable Keeper or open the map (press the “M”) and there’s a horse icon at the right bottom of the screen (here you can only browse the list). The Horse Market function is just available at certain Keepers, at major cities.
The Silver increase range depending on Training level:
2. Sell it to the Stable Keeper. At the Stable, select the horse, and press the “Sell Mount” option. It’s always lower than the Horse Market’s price of course, but as you can guess a low tier useless horse can’t be sold easily on the Horse Market.
Note: If you sell a horse, always be sure that you have chosen the horse that you want to sell! It may sound stupid, just until you meet many more people that have done it.. (65FS for reblath shoes anyone?😂).
As I mentioned, your mount gets EXP from the traveled distance. It can be active training or AFK training. The last one is where you use auto loop, and the horse will run automatically. When your horse runs out of stamina, you can recover it at the Stable Keeper, or you can feed it with various carrots. If you use auto loop, you can activate the auto-consume feeding.
Never let your horse get damaged! If you jump down from high places or the monsters attack your horse, your horse can die. At the Mount Information (press P when you ride it) window, you can check your horse’s death number. If you want to reset your horse’s death count, you can purchase a [Loyalities] Mount Resurrection Reset for 100 loyalties, but you can use it only once per mount.
These things will make your Auto-Loop more effective:
You can stack your mount EXP with the following items:
Keep in mind that you can’t wear Venia Riding Attire and Trainer’s Clothes (turned into a costume) at the same time, and if you are going to spend the money, either way, it’s better to get Venia!
The mount EXP is also influenced by your Training Level. When your horse is leveling up, you receive training life EXP.
Below, you can see all the XP requirements from Level 2-30, for Horse Tiers 1-8:
|Tier 1||Tier 2||Tier 3||Tier 4||Tier 5||Tier 6||Tier 7||Tier 8|
Before you start leveling the horse or horses, you must choose between solo training or wagon training.
If you are planning to teach more than one horse, using a wagon will be the better choice. You can connect up to 4 horses to a wagon, and train them at the same time. Each horse will get less EXP (compared to solo training), but all of the 4 horses will gain EXP at the same time. On the other hand, while you use wagon training, your horses ain’t running out of their stamina.
There are several types of wagons (and it’s a good idea to do some Trading as well, if you are going the Wagon way):
The various carrots:
Like the other Life Skills, the Training has 7 levels. These are the following:
When your horse levels up, you receive training life EXP. At lower levels, taming horses will give much better EXP than training horses. Taming gives you pretty good training EXP. You receive the experience when you register the wild horse at the stable, and there are a lot of ways to stack your life EXP bonus. For example:
If you reached Professional 1, you can also do the training daily quest at Stonetail Horse Ranch. The quest’s rewards are very important in Courser Training (It gives one of the following items: Rainbow Gem Fruit, Deep Blue Hoof Root or Breezy Conch Seaweed). This is the [Training] In Search of The Finest Courser quest from Shamhain at Stonetail Horse Ranch.
The higher the Training level or Mastery, the higher the chance will be to obtain a better horse through breeding or through the growth of your mounts. Even if the Training level is low, you can increase the efficiency of Training by equipping gear that increases Mastery.
Training mastery gives the following bonuses: Higher Tier Horse Chance from Exchanging or Breeding, Skill Gain Chance, Taming Success Rate, and Mount Exp Gain. The minimum level is 50 and the maximum is 2000. At the maximum level, the bonuses received are as follows: 40% Mount Exp Gain, 10% Higher Tier Horse Chance, 20% Skill Gain Chance, and 35% Taming Success Chance.
It’s important to mention the Auto-run Sprint ability, which can be used over Artisan 1 training level. Auto-run Sprint other conditions: the horse’s Sprint skill, equipped saddle, and keeping the mount inventory weight below 40%. In the desert, only the Diné can use Auto-run Sprint.
As I said, when the horse levels up, there is a chance to obtain a new skill. There are a lot of different skills to learn from and the mount’s value will be determined by the skills of your horse. If you want to boost your chance to learn skills, you can buy a Mount Brand Spell Stone from the Pearl Shop.
If you want to change your mount’s skill, you can try it with a Mount Skill Change Coupon from the Pearl Shop, but the change is not guaranteed. If you didn’t get the skill that you wanted (you choose which one you want), you obtain a Fail Stack (One Coupon = 1 Fail Stack), and the next try will be more effective. An update has also included the possibility to see the chances of exchange as a percentage as we prepare to use the coupon. Don’t waste coupons by exchanging random abilities with it: try to design the exchanges to work out the one that works best for you in the skill pool: possess the skills that are easiest to acquire and switch to the less easy ones (e.g. S: Fore Chop, S: Hind Kick, Two-Seater) to get as many chances as possible for the skill you actually want to acquire.
If you want to master a skill, you can train it with mini-games, or you can use a Mount Skill Training Coupon from the Pearl Shop. Horses that have learned certain skills can be certified as Coursers.
Also, a very useful coupon, the Horse Appearance Coupon (basic & premium), is available in the Pearl Shop. The basic Horse Appearance Coupon changes your horse’s look, while the Premium Horse Appearance Coupon, in addition, even gives your horse a chance to learn a whole new ability. Needless to say, this is a very good opportunity to create a Courser on a horse that has already reached level 30. It is often much more useful to try such a coupon instead of Mount Skill Change Coupons.

15+ level horses from any tier can be traded using Imperial Training. It means you exchange your horse for Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Training] and a large amount of Silver. You will receive seals based on your horse’s tier (Tier 1 = 1 seal, Tier 2 = 2 seals, and so on). The silver that you can obtain is influenced by your horse’s skills.
How can I use Imperial Training?
If the trade was successful, you will have received seal(s) and some silver. There are 3 NPCs where you can exchange your seals:
1. Shamhain at Stonetail Horse Ranch:
2. Breesman at Calpheon:
3. Bochlo at Sand Grain Bazaar:
If you have a male and a female horse, you can breed or exchange them.
You can breed every male horse 2 times, while a female horse can breed only once (you can reset these numbers with Horse Branding Reset from the Pearl Shop, but only once per horse).
You can breed your own horses, or you can “buy” a partner from the Breeding Market.
How can I breed my own horses?
The breeding has started. After the breeding cooldown, you will receive a foal. The foal’s tier is random, but the parent’s tier and level can influence it. You have the chance to make a higher tier horse, but it can be a lower tier too. Breeding has a 24 hour cooldown, so you can do it once a day.
What if I breed Coursers?
The exchange is the same as breeding, it has only a few differences: if you exchange two horses, you will receive a new horse, but the “parents” will be killed. It has the same chances as breeding, and you can exchange horses once per day. The exchange does not have a cooldown, you will receive your new horse immediately.
In general, the breeding and exchange give better results, if you train the horses to higher levels before you breed or exchange them.
Here is the website where you can use the horse breeding calculator. It’s easy to use: just select the tiers and levels at the top of the screen. Your chances will appear under the horse categories, for example:
7M(29%), 7F(33%), 8M(28%), 8F(10%)
It means you have a 29% chance for a Tier 7 male, 33% for a Tier 7 female, 28% for a Tier 8 male, and 10% for a Tier 8 female foal.
Once we have a horse, we can equip it with various horse gears. At your Mount Information (press P while riding) you can see 5 slots under the “Mount Equipment” subtitle. These are the slots for the Barding, the Saddle, the Stirrups, the Champron and for the Horseshoe.
Each part gives various bonuses for your horse, like bonus HP, bonus Stamina, bonus DP and so on. On the other hand, there are some skills which require different types of equipment, for example, the Sprint skill requires a saddle to work. Some horse gears can be dyed and enhanced with Black Stone (Armor).
The horse gears have durability. You can’t use your equipment if its durability is 0. You can repair them at the closest Blacksmith (interact with the Blacksmith, choose the Repair option, and then the Repair Horse Gear) for a low amount of silver. This function is only available if your horse is nearby.
There are several types of horse armor sets. You can purchase gear pieces from the Central Market, or if it’s not possible, there are different ways to get them:
1. The basic horse armor set can be bought from any Stable Keeper’s shop. It’s cheap, but it requires Amity.
2. There are Horse Gear Workshops where you can craft a wide range of horse gears:
3. The Pearl Shop offers many types of horse gears. However these are cosmetic and go into different slots, but they also provide you with some small buffs.
The Riding Crop has effects such as increasing Training Mastery and also increasing the automatic movement speed and the maximum speed of horses.
The Riding Crop’s increased speed effect works only when the durability is 100 or higher. Loggia’s Riding Crop can be purchased from Loggia and Zaaira. Manos Riding Crop can be crafted by 5x Manos Stone, 50 x Magical Shard, 15x Supreme Hard Hide and 1x Krogdalo’s Origin Stone.
The difference between the clothes mentioned above and these is that they do not increase your Training Mastery:
What gear should i choose?
For horse taming, I suggest you use Trainer’s Clothes and Trainer’s Clothes (Costume). For leveling horses I suggest you use Silver Embroidered Trainer’s Clothes or Fine Horse Trainer’s Clothes, and a Venia Riding Attire. And in addition to these, of course (if possible) you can use life skill gear, depending on how much money you spend on it, Loggia or Manos. Out of clothes, it’s not worth going to the Training Mastery ones, because they don’t give as many bonuses as Silver Embroidered or a Fine Horse Trainer’s Clothes.
