Red Dead Wiki

The Tennessee Walker is a horse breed in Red Dead Redemption 2.

This breed has one of the highest selections of coats; most can either be stolen or tamed from the wild. Tennessee Walkers tend to have higher speed and acceleration, but lower health and stamina. Its handling gives it moderate reactivity and agility.


Tennessee Walkers are riding horses. They can be identified by their refined head and elegant build. The Red Roan, Black Rabicano, Chestnut and Dapple bay coats can be found in the wild. A Flaxen Roan is purchasable from a stable. This breed is renowned for its eye-catching trot and comfortable gait. They are healthy and handle well, with good Stamina and Speed, making them perfect for longer journeys.

The breed is tall, with a long neck and sloping, long hips and shoulders. It has a smooth, unique gait and is sure-footed. They are popular for pleasure riding or light work on farms.

  • There is a loading screen that depicts an NPC riding a Flaxen Roan Tennessee Walker, despite the horse variant being impossible to encounter in free roam since the coat is exclusive to the Epilogue when it is available to the player to purchase.
  • If the player respawns after their horse is dead, a Tennessee Walker will be spawned next to them as their new horse.
