Well the Equus is a hard tame,even a t-rex is easier but you will need around 30-60 carrots so to get that you will have to plant some get a medium plant crop and in order to the seeds go to the nearest forest and keep gathering plants until you get the seeds plant the seeds with fertilizer inside the plant crops.
Quick tip: I was trying to tame one at my house and it bucked me off and my other tames thought it was hurting me so they killed it. Long story short, put all your other tames on passive if you want to tame it at your house.
To tame one of these creatures, you would need berries or crops. The best is just Rockarrot. Approach one with the feeding item on the last item slot. Feed it and ride it. You'll need to press the action button (E for PC players) for everytime they stopped moving or the icon on the right flashes, prompting you to use it.
To get a 100% taming efficiency on this creature, avoid spamming the buttons and carefully timing your action button. Make sure that your surroundings are clear and there are not too many threats. They often run off into random areas that tends to be near a Giga territory.
They often spawn in large open fields so that is best to look for one. Good luck and have a good one.
I found my Equus in the plains by the redwoods. (55, 25 ish). In the past few days, I’ve seen several in the southeastern rivers. Here’s some tips, orrr the entire process...
1 - Build a taming pen if you do not already have one, make sure the walls are high.
2 - Tame an Argentavis if you don’t already have one, don’t try this unless you’re a high enough level to get a saddle for it. An Argy can provide transportation, AND carry the Equus to the taming pen. If you are a lower level, spawn near one of those points up there ^^.
3 - Find the Equus. Few are located near the green obelisk, as well as the points at the top. The rivers are your best bet. Grab the Equus/Mount it. Bring your Equus to the taming pen.
4 - I suggest saving up amber for chef station and making dilo kibble, but you can use rockarrots and berries. (10 dilo kibble - lvl 1) (20+ rockarrots - lvl 1) (1000+ berries? - lvl 1)
5 - When you have food, mount the equus and feed it quickly. Continue. Equus is yours!
You might want to take some anti-nausea medicine before trying to tame this thing because it just runs in circles (for me at least, and on mobile). A lvl50 took like an hour of running in circles. It was very painful.
But sorta worth it because it’s a mobile mortar&pestle and now I can lasso people.
When you are on it and it bucks, tap the carrots down at the corner. You should have them ready and it doesn’t take that long with carrots, but it will with somethings. And the spawn all over the map. Like if this helped pls!
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.
Taming a equus is a passive tame not a knock out. You'll need to make a trap so it won't run off and get killed. You'll need as much berries as the DeX says. And have a ghillie suit to not spook it.But in case you accidently mount off and lose some taming effect have some more berries with you just in case. This is how I did it.
Been through scorched earth on a equus with no name. It felt good to be out of the rain. Cause in SE you can remember your name, cause there ain't no one for to give ya no pain. After 9 days I let the equus run free cause the desert had turned to sea. There were plants and birds and rocks and things, there was sand and hills and rings.
