Let’s go ahead, take a look at each of the eight different Agro tricks, and see how you can use them when you are playing the game.

Agro Tricks – How to Perform

We will start off by taking a look at the standard 180 turn and go through all of the Agro tricks such as the Pet, Quick Stop and the Riding on the Side.

The most basic of all of the tricks is the 180 turn. As the name says, this will make you turn all the way to your backside in an instant and go in that direction. To do it, press the X button twice and pull down the left stick at the same time that you do so. This can be great for evading or simply changing direction.

The Hill Jump makes you jump over the edge of a small hill or bump. It will happen automatically when Agro comes near one.

Stand While Riding looks amazing when you do it. It can also allow you to do other Agro tricks once you are doing it. Hold down R1 and triangle at the same time and you will stand on top of your horse as it continues to ride.

Jump Off is a follow up to the Stand While Riding trick. This will allow you to jump off your horse provided that you are standing on it. To do the Jump off, simply press the X button when in the middle of the gallop.

Pet is exactly as the name suggests. If you are standing right beside your horse, then you can press the circle button to start petting him. You can also pet your horse if you are mounted on top of it, but it can only be done if you and the horse are not moving.

You can Quick Stop your horse by pressing the left stick down and then pressing X at the same time. This is great if you need to look at an area that you are heading into before you actually go in.

Similar to the last one, you can Quick Start your horse by pressing the exact same combination that you did for the Quick Stop. This will immediately make Agro start moving.

The last trick that you can do is known as Riding on the Side. This is the hardest trick to do. You can do it by pressing the triangle button while you hold down R1. After this move the left stick to the side that you want to ride Agro on. Keep on practicing until you master this trick, as it can be very useful.
