My Time at Sandrock: how to get a Horse

How to buy a Horse or other mounts in My Time at Sandrock

My Time at Sandrock may not be an especially big town, but with your limited time each day constantly ticking away, you can get a lot more done if you can get around the place quicker. The best way to do that is to have a horse, camel, or yakmel of your own to ride around on, but it can be a little pricey, so we’ll explain how the system works.

How to buy a Horse – My Time at Sandrock

You’ll get shown where you can buy and rent horses fairly early on in the game, as Elsie will show you the ropes and give you a free horse to rent for a week. From there you can rent any mount from that shop for seven days for 10% of the buying price.

If you want to actually keep one for yourself though, you’ll need to head over to Construction Junction next to the town hall and build a Stable in your Workshop area. It requires 12x9 squares of space and requires the following resources:

  • 1,000 Gols
  • 10 Hardwood Sticks
  • 5 Rubber Shells
  • 5 Steel Bars

We have a guide on how to get Steel Bars in My Time at Sandrock if you need to know more.

Now all that you need to do is buy a mount. The stock in the ranch’s stable is random, but it refreshes every Sunday morning, so you can keep checking in for the animal you want.

Horse stats explained – My Time at Sandrock

My Time at Sandrock Stable

By default, mounts have two stats you need to worry about: Speed and Stamina.

The averages vary between the different types of animals. Horses have high speed but low stamina; Yakmels have high stamina but low speed; and Camels have a balance of the two.

Your mount’s stats will have a random chance to increase as its loyalty grows with you, also potentially getting new buffs attached, which you can view using the sign on your stable. Loyalty is grown simply by riding your mount as well as feeding it the food it prefers in your stable. After a mount has eaten a certain type of food, you can check the trough to see what each animal thinks of it.

You can also go to Fang's Clinic to buy various medicines that can affect your mount's stats, but you may need to participate in a few of Fang's experiments to unlock them.
