In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, horses play a significant role in the exploration of the vast world of Hyrule. Registering a horse at a stable allows you to call upon your trusty steed at any stable throughout the game. This guide will walk you through the process of finding, taming, and registering a horse in Tears of the Kingdom.
Locate A Wild Horse
Wild horses can be found in various locations throughout Hyrule, often roaming in groups. Some common areas to find them include:
- Faron Grasslands
- Hyrule Field
- Upland Lindor
- Taobab Grassland
Alternatively, if you have any of the Legend of Zelda Amiibo Figures or Cards, you can scan the Link figure to instantly unlock Epona, who is unexpectedly the best horse in the game.
How To Tame A Wild Horse In Tears of The Kingdom
Prepare for the taming process: Before approaching a wild horse, ensure that you have sufficient stamina. Taming a horse requires you to maintain your grip on it as it attempts to buck you off, so having enough stamina is crucial. Consider cooking dishes or elixirs that can temporarily boost your stamina, or consume stamina-restoring items.
To avoid startling the horse, crouch down by pressing the left analog stick and slowly approach the horse from behind. Alternatively, you can use stealth-boosting armor or elixirs to minimize the noise you make while moving.
Once you are close enough, press the ‘A’ button to mount the horse. Be prepared for the horse to resist any attempt to buck you off. As the horse tries to throw you off, press and hold the ‘L’ button to soothe it until it stops resisting. Your stamina will deplete during this process, so be sure to have enough or use stamina-restoring items.
Once you have successfully tamed the horse, ride it to the nearest stable. Stables are marked on your map with a horse icon and can be found in various locations throughout Hyrule. Dismount the horse by pressing the ‘B’ button and approach the stable attendant, who can be identified by the prompt above their head. Speak to them by pressing the ‘A’ button and choose the option to register your horse.
Registering The Horse At A Stables
Registering a horse requires a 20 rupee fee. If you have sufficient funds, the stable attendant will proceed with the registration process. You will be prompted to give your new horse a name. Choose a name that suits your horse and press the ‘A’ button to confirm.
Once the horse is registered, you will receive a saddle and bridle. The horse will now be available for you to call upon at any stable throughout Hyrule. To take your horse with you, approach it and press the ‘A’ button to mount. This stage will also allow you to set the horse’s saddle to make use of the new towing harness.
Registering a horse at a stable in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is an essential step in your adventure, as it provides a valuable mode of transportation. With this guide, you now have the knowledge to find, tame, and register a horse, enabling you to explore the vast world of Hyrule with ease.
