One of your main ways to get around in the game is by riding your horse. The main difference is that horses in online do not have permadeath, with a few minor changes. Instead you will be able to insure your horses in online mode.

Insurance Can Be Applied to Your Horse

You will have the option to insure your horse after purchasing it at the stable. If you are looking to insure multiple horses, you will need to buy insurance for them individually.

Horse Quality Affects Insurance Costs

The cost of insuring your horse will be affected by the quality of it. If your horse has good stats, you will need to pony up more cash!

Insurance Covers Your Horses Recovery Cost

When an insured horse takes a lot of damage in a short time, it will then enter into a critical state. However since the horse is insured, it will heal itself over time in Stable without need for additional cost.

Injured Horses Heal Over Time In Stables

Horses that take too much damage during one time will "die" and will need to be revived at a stable. For uninsured horses, you will need to pay a certain amount. Insured horses are healed for free.

Buy Horses From Stables Or Capture Them In The Wild

Generally, the method of getting horses in online mode will be the same as how to do it in the offline mode of the game.
