Dream horses (tier 9) are not available through the usual breeding method and take a lot of time and effort to achieve. Tier 9 horses and Tier 10 horses are end-game mounts in BDO and all have unique abilities. There are 3 types of dream horses.
Obtaining a “Courser” horse
To begin awakening a Dream horse yourself, you will need a level 30 Tier 8 horse with the following skills:
- Instant Accel
- S: Instant Accel
- S: Sideways
This is also known as a Courser horse and it will have a gold horse symbol in the top right corner of it’s icon.
For advanced tips on how to get a Tier 8 Courser, check out our Training guide which explains how to increase your chances of getting the skills you need using the “Forechop method”.
How to start Courser Training
Once you have a Tier 8 Couser at level 30, you can start “training” the horse. This involves feeding different materials into the horse until you have enough to do an “awakening attempt”.
To start, put the horse in the stable at Stonetail Horse Ranch or Grana (Melabee NPC – West Stable). Make sure it doesn’t have any gear equipped or items in the inventory. The option “Courser Training” will be available at the bottom.
The training window will open. Here you can train your horse in 3 different areas: Skill Training, Elegance Training and Strength Training. You must consume certain materials to train the horse in the different types of training. Each time you use 1 material, you increase it’s training exp by 1%. You can get a maximum of 180% exp in a training area, which give you a 90% chance of getting that particular horse.

Dream Horse Skills
The horse can learn any of the skills that a normal horse can learn (except Two Seater skill which can only be learned by Doom).
As well as the T8 horse skills, they can also learn special dream horse skills. Learning skills works exactly the same as with normal horses and is completely random, but dream horses tend to be “smarter” and have a higher chance of learning skills.
Dream Horse Stats
At level 1, all Dream Horses have the same base stats.
- Speed: 137.5%
- Accel: 137.5%
- Turn: 122.5%
- Brake: 122.5%
Every time the horse levels up, all four stats will increase by +0.1% to +1.3%. The amount it increases by is completely random at every level, meaning that some horses may have better stats than others. Stats aren’t too important but having better stats does have slight benefits to the speed of the horse. The break stat is the most important, but Doom and Unicorn can usually obtain the maximum break bracket quite easily.
Check out our Training guide for more details about horse stats.
