Rival Stars Horse Racing – What is breeding?

Breeding is having a mare (female horse) and pairing her with a stud (male horse). This will result in a third horse, which is a combination between the two. Once you mate the two horses, the mare will go idle and you can’t really use her until the new horse is born. 

Breeding can be done between your mare and your stud, your mare and a random stud within the game (will cost resources), or between your mare and a premium stud (will cost gold). 

The resulting new (baby) horse can be either better star than the parents or the same star. This all depends on your chances, but the percentage is shown on the main interface when you do this, so the rest depends on luck.

Rival Stars Horse Racing – How to breed?

The breeding process is pretty simple – all you have to do is have a mare. First thing you need to do is head on to the Stables. In the stables, you will see on the left side a breeding stall. This is where the new horse will be bred. 

Now the second step, once you have a mare, head on to your breeding stall and select to breed. Of course, you need an empty breeding stall for this, and it would be ideal to also have an empty horse stall. The empty horse stall will be needed for when the mare is done nursing, so you can keep the new horse. 

On the left side you will have your mares that you can select from to breed and on the right you will see the studs. Use the arrows underneath each of them to go back and forth between the available mares and studs and in the middle see the grade chances for each combination.

Usually the premium studs have better grade and stats than the rest of them, but you need to take into consideration more than just the stats. The distance a horse can run, the track surface and the position are all important for the resulting horse. 

So for example if you want a horse than can run on very soft terrain, you should breed with a stallion that has the same track surface preference. It all depends on the choices you make, so take this into consideration whenever you want a new horse.

Also, if you don’t like the studs currently available, you can get new studs! To do this you can either wait for the free refresh or pay 10 gold to refresh instantly. 

Rival Stars Horse Racing – Best breeding method

In my opinion there is something you could do in order to breed better and cheaper with a good stud. What you could do is head on to the Market and buy a good stallion. You can even spend gold to buy a premium stallion and use that to breed with your best mares in order to (hopefully) create a very good grade 3 horse. 

Another thing you need to keep in mind is that you should sell the horses that you don’t like or are not as good (or are not what you are looking for). This will free up horse stall slots and allow you to breed more. 

It will take time, but don’t worry – you’ll get the best horses in time. Also, don’t forget to upgrade the stalls in order to increase the grade of the horses you can keep in there. It’s quite important!

I have been playing games ever since I can remember. My passion for video games and especially pixel graphic games must have started back when I was little, because every time I try a new game with pixel graphics I immediately fall addicted to it! I started writing about mobile games in November 2018, focusing on creating in-depth guides for the most popular titles out there. Other than games, I am also passionate about design, and working on my very own pixel game in my free time.
