In the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players can ride any horse they encounter. There are several ways to locate and tame horses. You can do so on your own or you can take horses from other players.
First, you’ll want to go find a Stable. Most regions have at least one. Once you’ve found a stable, you can store up to five horses. To do that, you’ll need to enter a Stable and approach an NPC on horseback.
Aside from the Stables, you can also find horses throughout Hyrule. They’re found in grasslands surrounding the Dueling Peaks and in lakes and fields in central Hyrule. If you want a bigger horse, you can look for the Giant Horse, which is the largest and strongest of the breeds.
Upon arriving at a Stable, you’ll notice a screen that will ask you to name your horse. This screen will allow you to choose from a list of twelve character names.
After naming your horse, you can register it at a Stable. Registered horses are equipped with a bridle and saddle. The only catch is that you can only choose five at a time.
Taming a wild horse can be tricky. To start, you’ll want to sneak up on it. When you do, hold down the left joystick. Then, quickly tap the L button. At this point, the horse will begin to calm down.
As your bond with the horse increases, you’ll be able to customize it with items and gear. You can also whistle over it. Some of these items will help increase your horse’s stamina limit.
