Want to learn more about the Horse Generations of Star Stable? Then keep on reading!
Star Stable has been with us since 2011 and throughout the years our technology and optimization has improved. As our processes and designs have changed with newer horses, it means that some older horses will NOT be able to use certain new models of tack that we add to the game. Here you can see exactly which horses are affected.
Here is a breakdown of all the horses in Star Stable, sorted by generation. The generation is determined by how the horse was created (Generation 1 horses were created using a program called Autodesk 3D Studio Max, but now we use Autodesk Maya) and the design standard we strive for! Generation 1 includes the classic versions of horses which now also have updated versions, and the Generation 1.5 and 2 horses will follow with updated versions in the future, too!
Here you see our Starter Horse, the Jorvik Warmblood, through the generations!
GENERATION 1 HORSES
Our oldest horse models belong to Generation 1. Due to technical restrictions, we will not be able to offer new styles of tack for these classics.
★ Chincoteague Pony
★ Fjord Horse
★ Friesian Horse
★ Friesian Sport Horse
★ Irish Cob
★ North Swedish Horse
Here are some of our Generation 1 horses!
GENERATION 1.5 HORSES
The horses based on our previous Starter Horse model belong to Generation 1.5. These horses will not be able to wear new tack since they already have or will get updated versions of their breeds.

★ Akhal-Teke (2013)
★ Appaloosa (2013)
★ Danish Warmblood

GENERATION 2 HORSES
Our Generation 2 horses do not have the same restrictions that our Generation 1 horses have, but will not be able to wear new tack added to the game as we want to give as much attention as possible to our Generation 3 horses. All Generation 2 horses except from Spirit are able to use our updated show jumping saddle.

What’s the difference between a classic and an updated horse?
Our classic horses refer to most horses we released before April 2015. When we call a breed “updated”, it means we’ve revamped our old classic horse to a new version with more realistic proportions and more suitable animations.How do I know if my horse can use the tack I’m about to purchase?
When purchasing an item, you will see a text listing what horse breeds you own will not be able to use the tack.Why will you not add more new tack to the Generation 2 horses?
Adding new tack to already existing horses is a long and complicated process. By focusing on giving the new tack to Generation 3 horses, we can add even more new, cool tack of higher quality at a quicker pace!
