Equestrian the Game Breeding – How does it work?
One of the biggest questions we’ve been asking ourselves lately is whether there is a Equestrian game breeding characteristic. That would make sense, right? As you progress, you’ll buy a bunch of different horses with various potential Equestrian the Game scores. If you have two horses with strengths in different areas, you would want to breed them to get the best of both.
Well, in this guide, we are going to dispel doubts about the breeding system. We’ll explain whether or not it exists in the game, how it works, and various other facets of the system.
We also have an Equestrian the Game training guide. This is another popular feature in the game, so check it out to make sure you’re ready to take on the horse world.
Is there an equestrian breeding system?
Although the breeding system was not integrated into the game at launch, since June 22, it is here! The update is quite comprehensive and there is a lot to do when it comes to farming. Let’s take a look at the features below.
What’s New in the Breeding Update?
The developer of Equestrian the Game studied authentic genetics to design a system that closely resembles real breeding. In short, horses now have a genetic makeup, which you can check in-game. You can then breed two horses together that have any genetic makeup you want, whether it’s looks or specific traits.
This also includes crossing. You can breed horses of two different breeds, and they will inherit appearance traits from both. Speaking of appearances, there are also seven new coats:
- dun red
- Smoked cream
- Smoked Black
- Smoky gray dun
There are more to come as well, with three confirmed so far:
This also includes templates, although we can’t comment on them yet.
There are also two new traits, “Purebred” and “Certified Purebred”. This is related to the “Breeder’s Cup”, which only allows thoroughbreds to compete. A thoroughbred requires a horse to be 90% and above of a particular breed. Certified Thoroughbreds, on the other hand, must match in terms of physical characteristics, although there are no game goals for these types of horses yet.
How does equestrian game farming work?
It’s surprisingly easy. First you need to build the breeding facility – a new building. It has ten levels to acquire in total, and each level alternates between adding a new breeding slot or reducing the gestation time.
You select the two horses you want to breed and place them in the breeding facility. The process will take four hours, after which the mare returns to the stable. Then the mare goes through the gestation process, which lasts several days, until the foal is born.
Foals are automatically four years old at birth, so you can use them immediately in races.
Will the breeding function expand in the future?
Yes! Aging is a mechanic that the development team wants to incorporate into the game and will launch by the end of the year. There will also be a Coat Inheritance Probability Calculator.
