- Defeat Hofgrir Horse-Crusher in an unarmed brawl.
Meet Holfgrir Horse-Crusher at the Riften Stables, just to the north of Riften. Talk to him about the dangers of living outside the walls, which will lead to him boasting about being the strongest brawler in Skyrim. Make a 100 gold bet with him that you can beat him. This brawl is like any other, and the usual rules apply: no weapons, and no offensive magic. Beware, as he is much tougher than most other brawlers.
Claiming your reward
After winning the brawl, talk to Holfgrir and he will give you your 100 gold back, as well as another 100 gold for winning the bet.
