Horse Coats

Each Tier has a unique number of coats you have a chance of obtaining after Horse Breeding.

Horse Coat Determines:

  1. Base horse stats
  2. Available horse skills
  3. Horse skin (outward appearance)

Within the horse community, coats are represented by letters. Horse Breeders have some control over the coats they can acquire by looking at the parent's coats and their color values.

Horse Coats Determine Available Skills

Example: a T1B can learn Drift, Sprint, or Instant Accel, but a T1A can't.

Horse Coats Determine Base Stats


  1. A T8 Purebred White (T8E) starts with Speed 136%, Accel 136%, Turn 112%, Brake 112%.
  2. A T8 Purebred Black (T8C) starts with Speed 128%, Accel 128%, Turn 136%, Brake 136%.

The color values are added together, when you breed, to determine possible coat outcomes.

The combined parental RWB values are compared to all possible offspring. The parental RWB must be greater than or equal to the offspring RWB in JUST ONE color value for the offspring coat to be obtainable.

Purebred Horses

Color theory becomes important if you desire a certain horse skin. Purebreds are popular. Many, but not all of them, have top ranking stats. All purebreds have all their color value in just one color. For example, a T8 Purebred White (T8E) has a white value of 8. Red and Black are 0. To breed a pure bred T8 white foal, the parents must have a combined total of 8 White. The parents must have a combined colour total in one colour that equals the Tier of the foal you want.

Horse Stat Caps/Brackets

BDO Horses have what players call "Caps" or "Break Points". This means you cannot see or feel a difference in your horse speed until you go past a certain number. All stats in a certain bracket feel the same. The Caps are every 10 points: Ex. 140.1%, 150.1%, and 160.1%

You'll be just as fast at 150.1% as 160% Speed.

For T8, try to obtain horses that can reach above 150.1% with gear. Turn is the least important.

The most important two skills are Drift + Instant Accel animation cancel. Sprint is also beneficial.

For Tier 8 horses, Brake of at least 150.1% is important for Horses using Drift + Instant Accel animation cancel. However, Speed is important for AFK running and Sprint skill.

Recommended T8 coats for well-rounded stats are the 8A, 8B and 8D. 8E has the best Speed, but also usually the worst Brake. 8C excels at Brake, but looses in Speed.
