The Mustang is a horse breed in Red Dead Redemption 2.

All coat types will need to be tamed from the wild. Mustangs are a cross between war and work horses, so tend to have moderate health and stamina, but lower speed and acceleration. Its handling gives it moderate reactivity and agility.

The Tiger Striped Bay is one of the rarest mounts. It can be found west of Rio del Lobo Rock and southeast of Fort Mercer.


Mustangs are a type of multi-class horse. They can be identified by their lean frame and unique dorsal stripe along the spine. Grullo Dun, Wild Bay and rare Tiger Striped Bay can all be found in the wild. This breed is known for being loyal but hard to train. They have traits of both work and war horses, so are strong and will not be easily frightened. They have great Health and Stamina, but average Speed.
