The Horse Corral will be purchasable from the store for just 10 coins and 5 wood. This makes us think the building is incredibly important, if Zynga is practically giving it away (perhaps it will be used as part of another feature in the future?) so it's likely in your best interest to purchase and build one. The Corral needs to be whacked 30 times, with each time costing 7 Wood. Once the frame has been built, you'll need to go to work finishing the building's construction by collecting six different building materials: 10 each of Horse Salt Licks, Hay Nets, and Bags of Stone Grit which can all be asked for via general wall posts, and 15 each of Gate Hitches, Lunge Lines, and Fence Beams, which are earned through individual friend requests.
Once you've finished the entire Corral, you'll be able to purchase three different horses:
Mustang: 45 Horseshoes
Thoroughbred: 80 Horseshoes
Quarter Horse: 40,000 coins
You can name your horses, and your entire family can have their own horse to ride in the game. You'll be taught how to ride and dismount your horse, and as you ride them and complete actions around your Homestead, your horse itself will gain experience points and level up.
Remember, this feature is on a very slow rollout right now, so if you don't see a Horse Corral in your own game, please be patient as it will be coming around to you soon. Also, since the feature is so new, all of the intricate details aren't yet known, but we'll make sure to update you with all of the important information as soon as we know more. What we do know, however, is that there is apparently a five-part quest series to complete concerning the Horse Corral as well, so check out our full guide to those goals to learn what to expect.
