Horse & Wagon Ownership Guide
The long awaited immersive horses & wagons arrived at
midnight ET on Sept 26th for Tune-Up Tuesday!
There are SO many horse breeds and color variations! From Quarter Horses to Welsh ponies, Haflingers and Nez Perce and much more including many new mule variations including the American Mammoth Jackstock Mule, and many many more horse! Future updates will bring more horses and coat variations!
Yes, the Gang Horses are available for purchase!
The horse buying menu in the Stables is modeled after RDO/RDR2 -- so very familiar & intuitive to use!
In the horse buying menu, use [C] to change camera angle to see horse and/or tack better!
In the horse buying menu, choose the gender by toggling the left/right arrows for:
 - Sire, male
 - Mare, female
After clicking into a horse breed, if you accidently click enter on a horse coat, if you are prompted for "Name", but don't want to buy it, just tap the Escape key and you'll go back.
ALL horses no matter the breed, color or size has 500 slot inventory. Some people may think it's not realistic since a Shire can carry more than a Donkey. Coyote's reasoning is to provide everyone with the same storage so they can have the horse or donkey for their RP. So enjoy!
All tack and purchase options are $2. Similar to clothing, Coyote wanted to make outfitting your horse (or wagon) very affordable.
The tried and true Donkey is also included! Note: with Donkey, you can purchase a saddle blanket and saddlebags (for storage), but do not purchase anything else for Donkey (no saddles, mane, tale, etc) as they do not work with Donkey. This being said, you CAN use the Horse Menu  and add special equipment on the Donkey, including the special saddle! See Coyote's recent pics in #rp-media to see how these items scale to size with Donkey!
To enter the Stable Menu, you'll need to flee your horse first.
The comprehensive Horse Menu can be accessed via the General Menu [2} or dedicated  key. We now can remove tack from our horse out in the field just like we could with Arthur, although without the animation of taking off the saddle...but the script creator, SireVLC, may provide something like that.
With the Horse Menu  you will find: Horse XP and bonding level, horse tricks, adding special equipment, setting an NPC horse as your saddle horse -- so you can use your horse as a pack horse! And many more features are available for you to discover!!
To access your Saddlebags, stand near your horse and right-click your mouse and select [U]. Every horse has 500 slot inventory!
To brush or feed your horse, you still have the option to brush while mounted. You also have the option to stand near your horse, right-click mouse and use [U].
Whistle for your horse from any location. But as before, be mindful about facing away from buildings, otherwise your horse may spawn in a building.
If you get separated from your horse, it will be automatically sent back to the Stable.
If your horse gets injured, you will need to travel to the nearest Stable to pay a healing fee of $20.
Everyone can level up their horses to train fully to Level 4. If you are not a horse trainer, the process will take a very long, albeit immersive and equivalent long time. If you want your horse leveled up fast, contact Gus Hardin, the horse trainer at the Lazy H Stables!
Spawn your wagon using dedicated  key from any location. But as before, be mindful about facing away from buildings, otherwise your wagon may spawn in a building or off a cliff.
Be sure to send your wagon back to the Stables (stand near the wagon and right-click your mouse and select [C]), otherwise your wagon will be considered abandoned and be damaged. You'll then need to head to the nearest Stable to pay a repair fee of $20.
To access your wagon storage, stand near the wagon and right-click your mouse and select [U].
Wagon storage IS dependent upon the size of the wagon and you'll see the slots for each wagon category in the purchase menu.
Items in wagon storage are persistent (like in your horse saddlebags).
Most wagons can be customized, although more than clothing or tack options, Coyote wanted to make outfitting your wagon very affordable.
A new Hunter Wagon is available for $1,000! Once purchased, you can store up to 5 whole carcasses to sell to Arnie the Butcher or to give to another player. The carcasses are NOT persistent! Meaning if you store your wagon or log off, you will lose your carcasses. In addition to the carcass storage, the Hunter Wagon also has 900 slot storage for items (just like saddlebag storage). These 900 storage slots are persistent just like all other wagons.
Good news for Native RPers! To ride your horse without a saddle or saddlebags and still have storage on your horse: Purchase any set of saddlebags and then once you spawn your horse, use the Horse Menu  to remove the saddlebag via "Remove Basic Equipment". This is a nice feature for those of us who prefer to ride without a saddle or saddlebags.
You'll need to do this each time you log into the server.
The immersive horses are AMAZING and hope you enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed bringing them to our community!

We look forward to seeing pictures of your new horses and to hearing about your new RP adventures!
