So this was my deepest desire and bitterest lesson but once I worked it out the simplest tame ever. So Xbox version. Find your pony. Creep up, stay low have your carrots in the last slot on hot bar. Give carrot when prompted, jump on when prompted. Now he will go nuts bucking but keep your eyes on the bottom right screen. Soon as you see the yellow prompt press Y give him carrot. Higher the lvl the more shinnanagans - but truly... Just keep your eye on the flash of yellow. No need for trapping. Once you've got one the world is your oyster.
Firstly, why did it take 8 dilo kibble and 20 rockarrots to tame a level 3... Dododex said it would take 1 kibble but that’s alright I happened to have a rockarrot farm for this reason lol. Taming the horses is difficult because they kept spawning by rexs and scorpions but they tent to run in small circles for me. Bring lots of carrots!
For the guy who could not keep the equus in the trap, first of all, do NOT use thatch or wood. Use stone or better for the trap. Second, make sure that you put it in the trap correctly or make the trap bigger. Then make sure that it is NOT ON AGRO!!! P.s. most people are lying when they say they are knockout tame... THEY ARE NOT... THEY ARE PASSIVE! Y.w. ( your welcome)
