Zelda BOTW: Best Horses & Their Locations

Zelda BOTW Best Horses Their Locations

Nintendo developed and released The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii and Nintendo Switch gaming platforms, in 2017. The player assumes control of an amnesic Link who awakens from a 100-year sleep in an effort to reclaim his memories and stop Calamity Ganon from destroying Hyrule.

In The Legend of Zelda, players can select from a wide variety of horses, including numerous unique horses that can be obtained through amiibo or in-game purchases and many wild horses. Choosing one can prove to be difficult.

Keep reading and you’ll get to know the best horses in the game.



Depending on whether you own the Twilight Link Smash amiibo, the legendary horse Epona will either be the hardest or the easiest horse you obtain in Breath of the Wild. Epona will always spawn the first time you use it, but after that, it will happen randomly. In order to successfully use the amiibo to spawn Epona, you should be close to a stable. Reloading the save allows you to keep using the same amiibo. Additionally, it’s been said that scanning a large number of amiibo that are unrelated to The Legend of Zelda prior increases your chances of obtaining Epona to resurrect through amiibo.

Epona has the following stats:

  • Speed: 4
  • Stamina: 4
  • Strength: 4

Royal White Stallion


The Royal Horse can be found on Safula Hill to the west of central Hyrule Field, across the Regencia River. It is a descendant of Princess Zelda’s personal steed from a century ago. Take Toffa’s side quest in the Outskirt Stable if you can’t find it by looking around. It can be tamed using the same method as wild horses. Fly above it or sneak up on it. Then calm it till you can control it.

Royal White Stallion has the following stats:

  • Speed: 3
  • Stamina: 5
  • Strength: 4



These skeletal horses are occasionally seen at night, carrying skeletal foes. The eastern portion of North Tabantha Snowfield in Hebra, to the northwest, is a reliable location. Keep an eye out for the North Lomei Labyrinth. You can get paid to take a picture of one for the woman at the Snowfield Stable.

Wild Horse


The Upland Lindor region next to the Hebra tower is where you’ll find the best wild horses. When it comes to the numbers, this is more of a chance scenario because you will be selecting a horse from a herd.

Go to Hebra Tower and fly southwards. On the other side of the cliff, you will notice a number of horses. In order to land on the horse that you wish to tame, you should consider going to a higher location or using Revali’s Gale.

Wild Horses have very good stats:

  • Speed: 4
  • Stamina: 5
  • Strength: 4

This wraps up the best horses in Zelda: BOTW. We hope that you found it helpful.
