At the base level, saddles are necessary for riding and calling your horse. If your horse is not saddled, it cannot come to you from the stables, and you’ll be left to ride shamefully across the wild west with Scrawny Nag.
Every 15 seconds on a fully bonded horse, you can press the soothe key to regain some stamina bar. If you have the hooded stirrups and a higher tier saddle, you will have nearly unlimited stamina.
The only saddle that adds three bars of speed and acceleration, reduces the stamina drain rate by 35%. It is not the only saddle that adds a drain rate reduction, but the only one that can also have the stirrups added.
Considering how early it is unlocked and that it does not cost gold, it makes it the best saddle available in Online. There are a couple of downsides to the Nacogdoches Saddle : the core drain rates are pretty poor.
The second is a matter of opinion: the saddle is ugly, and the few good color options it has done not make up for the terrible pattern and design. On average, the core drain rates are very good, and their stamina regeneration remains one of the best.
They are not the Nacogdoches Saddle and will not decrease the stamina drain, but you will not notice it with the use of Hooded Stirrups. They’re all top tier saddles, regardless and, depending on your preference, worth the cost.
Paired with the Hooded Stirrups, it is a worthy contender to the Nacogdoches Saddle. It only adds the standard two speed to your horse, but it is a beautiful saddle that happens to be very good.
Once the Hooded Stirrups are added, the stamina is still nearly unlimited with most saddles. While the Nacogdoches Saddle is the best in Red Dead Online, if stamina is your main concern, worry about the stirrups more.
This saddle is one of the better-looking ones, preferring a scenic design over an unusual pattern. It is one of the best -looking saddles in the game with an understated black, red, and gold design.
As with all the saddles, the stamina drain rate is negligible when paired with the Hooded Stirrups. It does have the best core drain rates of the saddles, saving some money on horse feed.
It looks great on every horse since it relies on accessories more than color or design. Like the horse for the Trader role, the saddle is well-rounded but doesn’t excel in any particular area.
It’s also a good-looking saddle that doesn’t clash with any particular horse breed or coat. However, Special Saddles are preset, cannot add stirrups, and already have them equipped.
The Bear Dakota Saddle is good if you have the gold for it and like the design. It is slightly worse than the Fletcher Saddle when it comes to stats, but you will save money by not needing to buy stirrups to go with it.
It doesn’t have the best design of the Special Saddles category but has a good regeneration rate for the price. Its drain rates are comparable to the higher priced role saddles.
It still falls short of the role saddles, but only by about two percent for the lowest stats. Red Dead Online's emphasis on your horse and the way you treat it means that sooner or later you'll need to choose a new saddle.
If you're choosing a new saddle, the kind you go for will depend on your level, your wallet, and to some extent what you want to boost about your horse, whether it's health, speed, stamina, or just how it looks. And, of course, they impact your general look as you mosey about from New Austin to Lemon, whether you're mounted on a seat of black leather or leopard skin.
| Joel Franny/US gamer, Rock star North/Rockstar Games If you want a new seat for your horse, head to any stable (they're marked on your map with an icon of a horseshoe) and wander in through the open doors. That's not to say they can't be useful, but if you want to get a saddle that has a really significant impact on your horse's performance, they don't unlock until you're a very high level cowboy hero.
Not only that, but there's a lot of items we'd recommend you get first before you start looking at saddle options: new weapons, new clothes, ability cards, unlocking specialist roles, or just getting a better horse overall. OK, now it makes a lot more sense to start thinking about saddles, when you've maxed out everything else and have money to burn.
These are animal hide seats that give the biggest stats boosts in the game, and while they're all pretty similar, we recommend going for the Beaver Roping Saddle. It has some of the best stats in the game, doesn't look too bad, and is actually reasonably priced, considering that there are similar saddles that cost 20 gold bars and aren't meaningfully any better.
It also comes with built-in stirrups that boost your horse's speed and acceleration by two stages, and reduces stamina drain by half. Welcome to our Red Dead Redemption 2 Horses and Saddles List for PS4, XBOX1, and PC.

Horses are, predictably, a pretty huge part of Red Dead Online. Your favorite horse from single-player won’t follow you over to Red Dead Online, so you’ll need to buy a new one.
To help you weed out the nags from the studs, we’ve put together this Red Dead Online Best Horses Guide. It has links to all of our Red Dead Online Guides Content.
From essential tips, to a look at how to earn money fast, we’ve got you covered. There is a wide selection of horses to choose from in Red Dead Online, but not all of them are worth your time.
You’ll need to pay a premium for the great ones, and horse bonding still applies. It is extremely fast, and when paired with some good stirrups, it has fairly decent stamina too.
We’ve pulled together a list of all the horses you can currently get in Red Dead Online. Given how expensive the horses are in Red Dead Online, you might be wondering whether you can just grab a wild one instead, it’s free after all.
This effectively makes them useless, so bad news for those looking to save a buck or two. If you picked up the Special Edition of Red Dead Online, you’ll get a bonus horse right from the get-go.
