[Top 5] RDO Best Horses For Racing (And How To Get Them)

Riding in the Wild West like a true cowboy

Let's take you through our list of the best racehorses in RDO.

When it comes to racing, there’s not much to think about really. The top speed is quite the same for all the horses to be honest. However, higher acceleration and stamina will give you an edge in online races in the Wild West. So, let’s take a peek at our list of top-notch horses for racing.

5. Ardennes

A classy beast!

Some of the most well-built horses for combat and war belong to the Ardennes breed. They have excellent health and stamina, but, like other warhorses, they tend to have low speed and acceleration. They are among the heaviest of horse breeds in the game, but they handle well, especially under pressure, something that is important when going into battle. These horses are also extremely brave: they rarely become agitated, even when in combat.


  • Extremely brave
  • Great stamina and health
  • Makes you feel like a war hero

Price: 18 gold
Unlock level: 36

4. Nokota

A sturdy steed!

This beast is one of the fastest horses in the game with breathtaking base speed. It can go hoof to hoof with the Missouri Fox Trotter. However, every other stat fails to compare which is why it ranks low. In a straight-line race, they’re quite unbeatable, but they’re hard to maneuver at turns or around obstacles. The Reverse Dapple Roan is the best variant among Nokotas.


  • Extremely fast
  • Very agile
  • Good acceleration
  • Great stamina

Price: $450 (Reverse Dapple Roan)
Unlock Level: 48 (Reverse Dapple Roan)

3. Turkoman

Well-built and fast!

The Turkoman is a cross-breed of a warhorse and a racing horse, and you can see it in the stats. This beast has plenty of acceleration, but also, a ton of Health. The Turkoman makes a solid steed for almost any situation.


  • Good speed
  • Good acceleration
  • Very high Health
  • Very high stamina

Price: $925
Unlock level: 56

#2 Missouri Fox Trotter

Best in my opinion!

The Missouri Fox Trotter actually falls under two different categories of horses: race and work. This combination means that Missouri Fox Trotters are fast as well as sturdy, which makes them one of the best breeds in the Wild West. They are powerful horses with great stamina, but they also have good speed and a lively trot that will help you travel long distances faster.


  • Extremely fast
  • Great acceleration
  • Not easily spooked
  • Extremely high stamina

Price: $950
Unlock level: 58

#1 Arabian

Aerodynamics, they call it!

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.


  • Extremely fast
  • Extremely agile
  • Best acceleration in the game
  • Extremely high stamina


  • Black - 42 gold bars
  • White - $850

Unlock Level: 66 (70 for the black one)
