These are the methods, tips and tools that I use to train horses in BDO.

  • I buy T1 mares with breeds on them (This is only possible in the morning PST at the moment) - I train them to LVL 20
  • I buy T2 Males and train them up to the appropriate lvl to get a 60% chance at a female T3 or T4
  • I combine everything below T5
  • I use the farm wagon and auto run between Trent and Altinova (about 30 min) and just send them on their merry way while I am doing other things at home. (I don't really play actively until after 7 pm PST)
  • You can jump Tiers at the low ones and I recommend doing so if you have the patience to lvl. It Takes WAY LONGER to lvl higher tiers.
  • Heidel is an excellent place to get 7 stable slots with 2 more stables (6 more slots) just minutes away at Central Guard Camp and Eastern Gateway.
  • The horse market takes a 30% cut so don't bother selling unless you really need to. I will combine with cheep unleveled horses before selling a leveled horse with no breeds.
  • If you would like to get on the waiting list I would love to sell tier 5s to guildies before strangers. You just have to be ready with the money when the market is slow (in the morning) just contact me and I will keep a list on my sheet.

Thanks for sharing your results Foxfyre.  I've been meaning to do the same after a couple more breeding attempts. 

I just crafted the Merchant Wagon which is a 4-horse hitch that is reasonably inexpensive to build compared to the noble wagon.  You just need to cut a ton of acacia trees in the new map areas and process them into acacia plywood.  I have a pair of Tier3's and a pair of Tier4's hitched to it at the moment.  It's working out well.

 

Cheers,

Llew

Thank you so much for sharing this!! I've been trying to figure out how to document my own horse breeding. So far I've just been trying to write them down which hasn't been too precise. Would you mind if I tried to duplicate your spreadsheet? I love the picture of the different colors you can get in the different tiers!

Thanks again!

Please, go ahead. Anyone is free to use the format. When you start getting a herd bigger then a few it is a lot to keep track of.

@LLew Ya, I have been meaning to look into crafting the merchant wagon. Now that I am leveling T4s to lvl 25 its a longer road ahead so may as well do 4 at a time.

Someone asked for a big version of the horse breed image that I have on my spreadsheet. Here is a link to it.

http://s249.photobucket.com/user/foxfyer00/media/BDOhorses.jpg.html

I am going to add the rest of the higher tier breeds at some point when we need them. I guess there are 6 more tier 6s and then more of the higher tiers. Let me know if you need a bigger version then that. I can resave a different version for you.

FYI...the new pearl shop riding costume gives +20% to horse XP gain while wearing it.  It appears to stack with the trainer outfit bonus as well.  With the professional outfit that's around a 30% bonus!

There also appears to be a significant bonus to riding a single horse at night in game since the patch.  with the professional trainer outfit, pearl shop riding costume, at night on a single horse auto-looping I was getting 991 XP per tick on the horse.
