Apples are extremely useful in situations when the horse's stamina has dropped because it instantly and completely refills stamina. This comes in handy when racing, running from the law, or the player's horse is exhausted. Apples have the same use as horse pills except horse pills have a temporary boost.

The player can purchase apples at many general stores and doctor's offices. They can also be looted from corpses or found in chests. Up to five apples can be carried at one time, ten with the Treasure Hunter's satchel. It can be used by opening up the satchel and selecting the apple.
