Catch A Wild Horse

If you want to get a horse, you need to start by catching one in the wild. Horses are cautious, so make sure to approach them from behind when trying to catch them to avoid startling them. If you successfully catch a horse, you can register it at a stable.

How To Catch A Horse

Easier To Catch It With White Chuchu Jelly

White Chuchu Jelly is quite useful to have when catching horses. You can immobilize horses temporarily when you fuse them with arrows and shoot them with it. This way you don't need to crouch and sneak, making it easier to capture them efficiently.

It Is Also Possible To Carry Over Data From The Previous Game

Players who have played the previous game, 'Breath of the Wild,' can transfer their horses. However, please take note that if there is no save data from the previous game on the same Nintendo Switch during the initial startup, the transfer will not be possible.

Reroll Horse's Stats

When you capture a horse, its initial status is determined. To ensure you have a reliable way of transportation from the start, focus on finding horses with high initial stats. Note that most horses' stats can be upgraded, so rerolling stats is optional.

Horse Stats Enhancements

Upgrade Horses

The horse stats can be upgraded by going to Malanya in Akkala. Rather than taking time to reroll a horse to catch, you can upgrade horses quickly by simply bringing the necessary food. It's also a plus point that you can choose the color of your horse.

How To Get & How To Upgrade Best Horse

Revive Dead Horses

Revive Dead Horses

When a horse gets attacked or dies in an accident, it can be revived when you bring it to Malanya similarly to upgrading. To restore, you will need Endura Carrots, so collect them accordingly for the number of horses you want to revive.

Horse Customization

Horse Customization

By accumulating Pony Points, you will be able to change the bridle and mane of your horse. Changing the appearance to your liking is possible, but it won't affect the horse's performance.

You Can Obtain Epona Using The Amiibo

By scanning specific amiibo, you can summon the iconic horse "Epona" from the Zelda series. You can register it in the stable and use it throughout your journey. With impressively high stats, it can be an excellent partner in early game.

Horse Uses

Makes Your Travel Easier And Faster

When riding a horse, Link can move faster than running and the Stamina Wheel doesn't reduce. When venturing into unexplored areas, it'd be easier to reach a Shrine or Skyview Tower if you bring a horse with you.

Traveling Guide - How To Move & Explore

Horses Will Run Straight On The Roads

When riding a horse on roads, it will naturally run along the path without requiring any control. It is a handy tip for traveling along uninterrupted roads.

You Can Use Weapons And Bows While Riding

You can use weapons and bows even while riding a horse. However, it is not very practical as it can be challenging to aim accurately.

 You Can Aim For Shoot In Slow Motion While Jumping Off The Horse

When dismounting from the horse, Link can jump up to a certain height. If you draw your bow while in mid-air, you can aim your target in slow motion. Remember this when facing formidable enemies like Hinox, as it can be pretty useful.

Can Be Used As A Carriage

Can Be Used As A Carriage

By attaching a Towing Harness to a horse, you can use it to pull things like a carriage. This can be useful for certain quests, so it's recommended to unlock it in early game.
