Break the Kentucky Saddler, the American Standardbred, and the Hungarian Half-bred.   

Before you can attempt this you will need to earn the lasso and complete the tutorial mission "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions". This mission will show you how to lasso and break a horse. Once you have completed the tutorial you can then proceed to find the horses required for this achievement.

Kentucky Saddler: (Story Related)
This horse is a pale golden colour, you will be rewarded with this horse for completed the "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions" mission.

American Standardbred: (Great Plains/Tall Trees)
The Standardbred stands out from the rest of the horses due to its black colour. This is probably the most obvious horse in a herd.

Hungarian Half-bred: (Mexico)
This horse tends to blend in with other horses due to its white colouring and dark face. Some of the other pale coloured horses look the same from a distance.

you can buy all of the horses but the hungarian half bred and american standardbred arent available until the end of the game. i havent gotten to it yet but im pretty sure you eventually get all of them. The kentucky saddler is actually the horse you get after "Wild Horses, Tamed Passions"

@Lostheroes5686: I found it in the Great Plains. Find a herd of horses and the black horse is real obvious as sdaid in the guide. I just need the dmn Hungarian!!!

you can get the Hungarian if you do the "love is the opiate" stranger mission. That is the white horse you need to get for the guy.

The Hungarian Half Breds are usually in Mexico where there is tall cliffs near the Far Right and Far Left of the map :)

Comment #18 by TheSplitter96
Monday, April 04, 2011 @ 02:07:07 PM

@Downsy you get the Kentucky saddler at the end of wild horses, tamed passions. It escapes the canyon and when you break it, Ms. Mcfarlane says you can keep it. It's impossible to miss.

Kentucky Saddler is found in one of the missions for Ms. McFarlane.
I managed to find the Hungarian Half-Bred on the far right of the map in Mexico.
I found an American Standardbred in Tall Trees.
Took me a while to break the Standardbred.

I have broken all of them, last one being the American Standardbred, yet I haven't received the achievement. I've definitely done it as all three horses are available for purchase at the general store, and I've been riding around on the American Standardbred for a long time. What to do?

Does purchasing them count towards the achievement, or do you have to actually find them in the wild and physically "break" them? I'm just curious to know before I fork out the money for them because I'm being cheap.

Comment #23 by NursRatched
Saturday, June 25, 2011 @ 01:11:16 PM

@KandylankK: you need to break the horses before the deeds become available. Once you break them, a message will appear saying "New items are now available for you in stores!"

Hungarian half-bred: guaranteed find in Diez Coronas. Go to your map, and make a waypoint where the horses are pictured slightly up and to the left of the "Diez Coronas" label.

What I was wondering, though, are there TWO Hungarian half-breds in the game? I had to locate and break the horse twice because I forgot to save the first time. HOWEVER, both times I was chasing a herd there appeared to be two white horses. Red Dead Wiki did mention the possibility of there being two, but it's a glitch in the game.

The easy way to break horses is to fairly slowly rotate the Left Stick anti clock wise. works every time. hope that helps

The Hungarian Half Breds are extremely common in all of Mexico. I just ran into a pack of 3 pure white horses. I took one. :P

You have to get the Black Horse in the norther region. I think that is the Kentucky Saddler. Otherwise, you just have to wait until you see each type of horse.

Monday, August 29, 2011 @ 11:35:58 AM

I can't get the achievement! I'm sure i have broken the american standardbred but it won't give me the achievement. Maybe it's slightly lighter but i'm not sure.

I have broken the Kentucky Saddler on several occasions. I have saved them all both at the hitching posts and at the campsite to ensure that I have broken them. However the store is still saying that it is not available. Anyone help?

I got the "Redeemed" achievement So I got all horse but not this achievement.

Comment #38 by Genius Mike
Tuesday, August 28, 2012 @ 10:49:43 PM

@37 You don't need all the horses for Redeemed.
@everyone else I've read the American Standardbred has a slightly higher chance of being found at night, but this makes it tricky to distinguish from the dark brown Dutch Warmblood. Was cruel of Rockstar Games to put the Dutch Warmblood in the game, since it looks so similar to the American Standardbred and wasn't bred in real life until roughly 50 years after this game takes place.

"Hungarian half-bred: guaranteed find in Diez Coronas. Go to your map, and make a waypoint where the horses are pictured slightly up and to the left of the "Diez Coronas" label."

This worked for me, thanks. I'd advise people to go there first if your looking for it.

Found a Hungarian in between Las Hermanas and Casa Madrugada. I got off it and broke another black horse nearby and my Hungarian escaped, but somehow 4 more Hungarians spawned near me and they were grouped together. (:

Having a hard time finding the Hungarian, found the American by accident west of Blackwater. Broke it on the first try!

Comment #44 by TheyAllFloooat
Monday, August 05, 2013 @ 01:20:47 PM

I literally had to go all the way to the edge of Mexico where the cliffs don't allow you to go any further to find the Hungarian. Achievement unlocked and I didn't have to purchase it. :)

I found the Hungarian in Las Hermanas right next to the cactus symbol on the map, the American I got in the Great Plains and there was actually two right next to each other :)
