    When you first start the game you get given a horse. A little while after you learn how to feed the horse, pat the horse and calm the horse down which helps build the bond with it. Very early in the game when you arrive to horseshoe outlook you will get a mission from within the camp which will make you switch horses. Be sure to switch back (through the stables) to the first horse after the mission has been completed to carry on with your previous horses stats, as the bond resets with every different horse. I achieved in a little over 5 hours gameplay. Happy hunting 😁

    Rusty Nail zhTo get this faster, hitch the horse when you can. And feed it each morning when going away fromyour camp. Both help a lot!

    I got this around 4-5 hours into the game by essentially role playing. I did the things that I think I would do if I owned a horse: before riding I would pat him multiple times, every morning I would feed him, I tried to hitch the horse when possible. Also there were points where the story would have me hop on a different horse. When I could, I would whistle for my horse and swap out (for example the very first bounty mission). This is very easy to get as long as you take care of your horse.

    Reborn InsanityThis is pretty much exactly what I did.

    Level 4 is the maximum bonding level for your horse - keep using the same horse

    whenever I rode the horse press (LS) this praises/reassures the horse

    When your not riding the horse and its hitched, you can also pat the horse :)

    Use your brush to keep your horse nice and clean

    Keep your horse fed - whenever I saw his stats drop id feed him (hay seemed like a real treat as it improves all the horses stats) - you can buy this from the general store in the towns
