The Nokota is a horse breed in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.

Most coat types will need to be tamed from the wild. Nokotas tend to have higher speed and acceleration, but lower health and stamina. Its handling gives it higher reactivity and agility.


Nokotas are classed as race horses. They can be identified by their well-built frame and sturdy legs. The Blue Roan and White Roan can be found in the wild, while the Reverse Dapple Roan is purchasable from a stable. They are known for being healthy and handling well. Their Speed and Acceleration matches many race horse breeds, making them perfect for traveling short distances quickly in a sure-footed manner.

Catalogue Description

Nokotas are warm-blooded equines, though they exhibit the quickness and agility of hot-blooded animals. They have a neck and back that is thick with muscle, prominent withers, thick winter coat and a low set tail. Fast, playful and observant, Nokotas are prized endurance and trail horses with a unique bloodline worthy of attention.
