–In-game description

Horse Pills are a consumable item found in Red Dead Redemption.


Using Horse Pills while on horseback refills the player's horse's stamina meter and also giving it a temporary boost to total stamina.

Horse pills are very useful while trying to escape from the law, as they provide almost unlimited stamina for your horse for a limited time, allowing you to outrun them.

When completing tasks that require the player to be very fast on their feet, such as obtaining the U.S. Marshals Uniform or getting the Heading South On A White Bronco trophy/achievement, horse pills are indispensable, especially when combined with an American Standardbred or Hungarian Half-bred horse. The pills are also invaluable during all manner of races.


Horse Pills can be purchased from General Stores.

Initially 5 may be held in the players inventory, once completing rank 10 of the treasure hunter challenges the satchel is upgraded to accommodate double (10) of all consumables (except survivalist maps).
