Zelda: Breath of the Wild is overwhelmingly vast and traveling through great distances can be tiring even through a video game. That's why the game can't stress enough the need for horses, and although the plain ones anyone can get from the wilderness will do, there are special horses and mounts that may be worth the player's time. Here's a list of all the best horses, mounts and where to find them in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The Best Horses In Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Epona. Epona is possibly the best horse Link can get in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All of her stats are maxed out, which means Link won't have to switch between stronger and faster horses. She will pop up in the game when the player scans a Smash Link Amiibo on the Nintendo Switch.
Royal Stallion. Although Epona does have maxed out stats, the Royal Stallion is the fastest horse in Zelda: Breath of the Wild - even faster than Link's beloved companion. Speak to Toffa, an old man located at the Outskirts Stable, and he will give the quest "Royal White Stallion." Following the quest will lead Link to the horse.
Giant Horse. The Giant Horse or Calamity Ganon's horse is the strongest horse in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This horse doesn't need a quest to finish as it can be seen in Taobab Grassland and another below Mount Hylia. He's the best horse to use during combat since he has maximum strength.
Other Wild Mounts And Horse Revival
Other animals can be tamed in Zelda: Breath of the Wild like elk but only horses can be registered and mounted again. Wild mounts will run off as soon as Link dismounts them and there are great wild mounts out there. Riding a bear, for example, will make other enemies run away and be afraid, but the bear won't attack.
Cool looking Skeleton Horses can also be mounted in Zelda: Breath of the Wild and as much as everyone would love their own undead horse to lead them to the path of darkness, this mount will break everyone's, heart. The stable won't accept them due to their monstrous appearance and they appear only during night time. Once the daylight comes, they will vanish and die.
The Lord of the Mountain is another wild mount in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It has great stats and can be found in a grove atop Satori Mountain. This mount may only appear at night and if it's not there, leave and try again the next day. When a registered horse of Link dies, he can resurrect them by visiting the Horse Fairy and giving her 1000 rupees.
