It's been many years since Zelda: Breath of the Wild came out, but even to this day it's still such an amazing game that it deserves to be played again and again. We can guarantee that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 gets a release date, many people will come back to complete this stellar game again.

Best horses in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Due to Zelda: Breath of the wild being an open-world title, there are plenty of mounts that can be acquired, but it's really luck of the draw if you find them on your Hyrule travels. They are truly magnificent horses that are the best horses you can find in the game.

There are two mindsets to go into this list due to stat-based horses, meaning they revolve around three different stats: strength, speed, and stamina. Well, four if you count Temperament! You could say the best of the best are the horses with the max stats if you will; however, that doesn't mean it's the best.

The other mindset you can enter is aesthetics or role play. Which horse is right for you? Which horse do you think Link would choose? His trusty Epona, or the royal horse, due to his connection to Princess Zelda? Without further ado, here are the best horses in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

We'll split this into two different sections, Wild Horses and Special Horses, for the sake of the list. We'll say you can change the horse's gear to improve its stats; despite that, you can't do that on a few horses.

Wild horses

To acquire the best wild horses in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, head to the Ridgeland Tower area. In the area above the Maag No'rah Shrine. It's near the Serenne stable.

Wild Horse stats and color are completely random; fortunately, the best horses are close to a stable. Once one has been subdued, head to the stable and check the stats. If it's not your taste, launch it, load your game and find the one you want. It may take some time, but it's worth it!

If you only want stats, stay away from Spotted Horses, because unfortunately they have terrible stats!

The fastest horse

Yes, the fastest horse in the game is actually a wild horse, not a special horse. Keep in mind this is for the fastest horse, not the one with the best overall stats. You want to get to AB as quickly as possible. Do you want to lead him into battle? Not until you want the horse to die!

Do you see what we mean by leading him into battle? With such a weak force, go against something strong and the horse has no chance of survival. His stamina might not be the best, but that can be countered by using Endura Carrots or equipping the DLC's Ancient Briddle.

The best horse

We say Best Horse because it's above Epona in the stats department, which is no small feat. Due to the player's itch for exploration, it's rare that you don't stop every five minutes to check something out. If you are that type of person, which is most of us, this horse is for you.

Look at these statistics. These are clearly the best stats in the game. However, as we said above, wild horse stats are random, so it may take you a while to find a horse with stats like this!

You may find a different horse with stats like this, but it's really personal preference you want!

Special horses


It's hard to find a 3D Zelda title that doesn't play Epona in some way; unfortunately, it's not in the game by default. Of course, you can spend hours and days exploring the world, trying to find it, but alas, that's impossible. The only way to get the trusty Epona is through an amiibo. Or, more specifically, the Smash Bros. amiibo. Series Link.

If you don't own this amiibo, you can't get Epona!

Looking at the stats, you would have thought that right off the bat, Epona is one of the best mounts in the game, with the best stats, however, since you can't upgrade her through gear shifting. She is the best non-scalable horse in the game.

Link Default Horse

If you walk through the entirety of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and don't even look at the in-game horses, we wouldn't blame you. Horses can't climb mountains! However, you actually need a horse for the final boss fight, so you'll get one, and that horse is the one shown in all of the trailers and a few of the game's memorabilia.

You can find this horse in Hyrule. Just head to Taobab Grassland and Upland Lindor, and you can find this pretty decent horse. Hey, you get a horse for free, and that's pretty decent!

giant horse

Sometimes in the game you want the fastest animal or the animal that can gallop the longest. Although on some occasions you want to find the biggest majestic horse you can find and plow through all your enemies on your travels. If you want the latter, you can find the giant horse in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This horse is huge, and of course it would be, because it looks like the handsome steed from Ganodorf.

The giant horse's stats might look a bit odd, but due to its lack of stamina, it can gallop forever. Perfect for those following the route to get to AZ. Also, due to the size of this mammoth, riding enemies damages them!

To catch this giant horse, head to Taobab Grassland in the Lake Tower area. Be warned that you need a LOT of stamina to master this massive beast. Like Epona, this horse's equipment cannot be changed.

royal horse

If you ever want to go into battle on the most amazing horse, then the Royal Steed is for you. The bond you have with Princess Zelda may be strong in your heart, so the royal horse can keep that feeling fresh in your mind, knowing that this horse is the descendant of the one used by the princess many, many years ago. years.

To catch the White Stallion, head to Taffa at Outskirt Stable, and they'll give you the Royal White Stallion quest. Head to the Manhala Bridge, and somewhere in that area is the Royal Steed. Unfortunately, this mount may not be the best in terms of stats. It is undeniable that the horse is glorious.
