We continue our trend of Red Dead Redemption posts with a small guide on how you can tame the very rare American Standardbred, which is among the top horses made available to you.
The American Standardbred is the fastest horse you can have in the game, but cons about this horse are that its stamina and health pool is weaker than other horses you can tame. The horse is also jet black.
The horses have also been spotted in the Tall Trees area, which is situated by the lake. But be careful, because if you do not hitch it by the pier at Aurora Basin almost immediately, a bear will maul down your new found friend before you even have the chance to save it.
According to the Red Dead Redemption Wiki, The American Standardbred is prominently found at night between 9pm and dawn, but reports from lots of players also say they have spotted them during the daytime.
The American Standardbred is unlocked at level 40 in multiplayer, and you can also buy an American Standardbred deed from a General Store, but you must tame one before you can do so.
If you manage to tame an American Standardbred, you will receive the achievement Buckin Awesome.
