A Zelda game is incomplete without horses, as is the case with Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. In this game, horses serve as the primary source for traveling quickly. Besides that, collecting all the rare horse breeds is a major incentive for exploration in Zelda ToTK. Lately, some players have spotted Zelda’s Golden Horse, and the news has spread like wildfire. Hence, in this article, we will guide you on how to acquire the Golden Horse in Zelda ToTK.
The horses that you’ve kept in your collection can be customized according to your needs. For example, you can choose the color of its mane and give each horse a suitable bridle and saddle. So let’s see how you can get and find the Golden Horse in Zelda ToTK so that you can start decorating it as soon as possible.
Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (ToTK): How to get and find Golden Horse
Zelda’s Golden Horse is a treat for the eyes. Its shiny, bright yellow mane covering its golden body looks so aesthetically pleasing that you should add it to your horse collection. Finding the horse might be easier said than done, unless you are good at exploring. So, let’s get started.
Potential Princess Sightings Side Adventure
You can get and find the Golden Horse in Zelda ToTK by starting the Potential Princess Sightings side adventure first. To start the quest, head to the Lucky Clover Gazette. The Lucky Clover Gazette was once the Rito Stable, and now it is the headquarters for the newspaper. Anyway, coming back to the matter at hand, these are the coordinates for the Lucky Clover Gazette (-3256, 1758, 0152). If you’re having trouble finding the location, head northwest from Central Hyrule towards the Hebra Mountains. The Lucky Clover Gazette is located near Lake Totori. Enter the Gazette and talk to Penn, the talking bird NPC. That should start the “Potential Princess Sightings!” side adventure.
Zelda’s Golden Horse Side Adventure
From the Gazette, you should notice a road heading northeast, hugging the slopes of the Hebra mountain. Follow the road, and you will arrive at the Snowfield Stable. Here are the coordinates to the stable (-1655, 2572, 0277). You can unlock the nearby Orochium Shrine to unlock fast travel. Coordinates to the shrine: (-1637, 2642, 0253).
Outside the entrance of the stable, you should find Penn again talking to a guy named Harlow. Join their conversation and that should trigger Zelda’s Golden Horse side adventure.
Where to Find the Golden Horse
After talking to Penn, head north towards the North Tabantha Snowfield. Eventually, you will notice giant broken structures in the distance and a few gray-colored horses. Look to the right, and you should find Zelda’s Golden Horse. Here are the coordinates to the horse: (-1813, 3356, 0237).
How to Tame the Golden Horse
Before approaching the horse, crouch to activate stealth mode. You can wear outfits that provide the Stealth Up attribute. Also, if you don’t have enough stamina, make sure you have a stamina-restoring potion/recipe. Endura Carrot meals raise the maximum stamina pool of Link, so make sure to consume one before taming the horse. Visit this article for more information on how to gather Endura Carrots.
Now, you are all set. Crouch-walk slowly and steadily toward the horse. When you’re close enough, you should get the option to mount the horse. Do so and rapidly spam the “Soothe” button. Notice that every time you hit Soothe, a portion of your stamina gets depleted. That’s why having a stamina-restoring recipe is crucial. If the horse kicks you out, sadly, you have to do this process again. When the Golden Horse is soothed, bring it back to the stable. After you do so, the Zelda’s Golden Horse Side Adventure will be completed, and you can add this horse to your collection.
