Zelda Breath of the Wild: Where To Find And Tame Horses

The open world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is huge. To get from one place to another, players have to use their trusty horse. The game also has a feature that allows players to tame wild horses.

There are different types of horses in the game, with different levels of stamina. You can find horses at an early stage of the game, the exact location is highlighted in the image below:


Where To Find And Tame Horses In Zelda Breath of the Wild:

Once you get to the highlighted location in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you must tame a horse that you like. Not every horse is the same, as some horses have higher stamina than others. So obviously you will be trying to get your hands on a horse with high stamina, however, those are not easy to tame. As the stamina of the horses go up, so does the difficulty of taming them.

To tame a horse in the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you must sneak up behind it and jump on its back. It is easier to tame low stamina horses, as they will not try to knock you off their back when you hop on them, however, horses with high stamina will try to knock you off. As horses try to knock you off their back, you stamina starts going down, and when the bar goes all the way down, you get knocked off. So you will need high stamina to get high stamina horses, as it is a battle between you and the horse. Whoever runs out of stamina first, loses.


Horses with spots on their backs are easier to tame, while horses that are just one plain color are harder, but better. Once on the back of a horse, you can calm it down by giving it food. You have to tame the horse before your stamina bar going all the way down. You can consume food while on the horse’s back, so that’s a good trick to use if you want a high stamina horse at an early stage of the game. You will need a ton of stamina replenishing food to do that though.

When you get a new horse, it will disobey you from time to time. The horse will go in a different direction than the one you intended to go, or it will slow down and stop without any reason. To prevent this from happening, you must sooth your horse whenever he disobeys you. After some time, your horse will become more loyal and will always listen to you.

Hopefully this guide helped you get your very own horse in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game is now available on the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
