You can purchase the Red Chestnut for $250.

In order to acquire this majestic beast, you’re going to need to go through a bit of trouble. First, you’ll need to make your way to the nearest stable. Here you can manage your horses, including selling off the horse that you acquired in Honor Among Horse Thieves. This horse really isn’t worth much anyway, so selling it off shouldn’t prove too difficult.

Once you’ve sold off your basic horse, it’s time to look through the offerings that the stable has. Luckily, each stable offers the same stock, so you can easily find this horse no matter which one you visit. The category that you’re looking for here is the Arabian option. Once you select this, you should be able to find the Red Chestnut at the bottom of the list. The horse itself costs around $250 now, which really shouldn't be that hard to acquire if you head out and complete some missions or do some hunting.

When you have purchased the horse, you can select it as your main steed and then head out into the world to show off your shiny, new mount. You can also return to our Red Dead Redemption 2 walkthrough for more helpful strategies and content.
