Red Dead Redemption 2 How to Store Things on Horse

Horse inventory in Red Dead Redemption 2 allows you to store some things on your mount. Instead of lugging it all around on your back, or having to visit your stash in the camp every few hours, you can put some things in horse cargo and let your mount do the work. However, there are restrictions – don’t expect the horse to act like a bottomless box. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to store things on horse in Red Dead Redemption 2.

How to use horse cargo & inventory in RDR2?

First of all, keep in mind there are limits here. Your horse can store outfits, masks and hats, as well as weapons and pelts or skins. It cannot carry jewelry, food, or any of the other stuff you regularly loot. You can put skins into horse cargo by approaching the horse while carrying one on your back, then pressing the appropriate button.

    I actually tamed a couple of horses and brought them back to camp with me. Whenever I go hunting I bring them both with me with my own horse and I manage to kill and stow 1 animal on each mount. It helps when i give them to Pearson. I also accidentally hit another rider who them left his horse for ‘treatment’ and so I took his horse with the saddle. That too helped me with getting more animal stows.
