1. Arabian

Doesn't need a description!

The superior horse type undoubtedly contains the best horses in the game. You’ll find here that the Arabian has staggeringly high stats. It has the best stats and is the fastest horse you can find. The White variation is free if you can find it while free-roaming but is inferior to the others. The Rose Gray Bay is arguably the best but is only obtainable once you beat the game. For those with deep pockets in the endgame, the Black variation is your best bet and makes for a great horse in any situation.
