In fact, you can purchase Horse Revivers in any stable or general store in major towns that you come across. AS we’ve mentioned above, one will cost you around $10 ($9.50, to be exact). You can ostensibly find Horse Revivers while out in the wilderness; say, while raiding a rival gang hideout. However, the stables and general stores are likely going to be your most reliable source of Horse Revivers. In general stores, you have to go under the Horse Care tab in the catalog.

To find stables more easily, you can hit X on Xbox or Square on PlayStation on the World Map screen to bring up the list of stables by scrolling down to the appropriate icon. All you have to do from there is flip through the list (left or right on the D-pad) and find which one is the most convenient for you to get RDR 2 Horse Revivers at.

    Oh man, I learned this the hard hard way yesterday when my super fast horse and I accidentally hit a train. She was SO fast that I just couldn’t stop in time. OK, so maybe I waaas was text-riding… 😉 I ended up taming a wild horse the game immediately put in front of me and she’s awesome, but not as fast and we still have a lot of time to go with the bonding and development part. Dang. Lesson learned.
