Money is one of the most important parts of the game. You need money to care for horses, buy tack, feed yourself, and travel. If you have no money, it's hard to play. So, how do you earn it? On this page, we've listed a number of different ways.
As you may have noticed, there are lots of items lying on the ground for you to grab. Wherever you are, you can almost always find things. Here are some examples:
The pony express is a mail delivery system that delivers packages to characters, and they need you to deliver them. The Post General will give you a new package every time you visit, and if you deliver it to the right person, they will give you a reward. You can usually earn a couple thousand for each package, and sometimes you even get an item, like a companion or necklace. The station is found in between the two sides of mane forest, near the beach. It's very close to the pawneer and the horse whisperer on Horse Isle.
Questing is the most important part of the game. Characters pretty much exist for the sole purpose of giving out quests. Every character has at least one eventually, and the rewards depend on how easy they are. If it's a hard quest, you get a higher reward. If it's easier, you get a lower reward. Ask any character if they have any odd jobs to do, or just have a long chat and it usually ends in a quest. Quest help is posted under the Quests page on this site.
