What are the best breeds?
As I said, there is not a single "best horse" in the game, there are only strong breeds that are much better than the standard breeds you come across early on. The Arabian, Turkoman and Missouri Fox Trotter breeds are the most rounded and top tier, remember that the statistics below will reflect the horse if you find it and not in its best condition.
Arabian horses have some of the best scores in total.There are a total of three fur species, each with its own statistics: White, Black and Rose Gray Bay.
The White Cockerel can only be found in the wild, relatively early to find this snow-white Beauty wanders around Lake Isabella, it's quite difficult to tame, so you have to be persistent in pursuing it and calming it down before you can reach it.  Compared to other Arabian horses, it has the lowest base health and endurance statistics – although it is still much higher than any of the standard breeds. A worthy compromise for a fantastic horse that can catch and tame you so early in the game. Take care only of the wolves that are nearby.
The black-haired Arabian Horse can be purchased in the stable of Saint-Denier in the barn of the Thoroughbred. Decent Health and Stamina .
Rose Gray Bay-Maned Arab
