Rewards

The Horseback Obstacle Course is a mini-game located at the Highland Stable, southeast of the Lake Tower. Speak with Blynne, who can be found wandering around the front of the stable, or sitting next to the Cooking Pot. He is a champion horseback rider and challenges Link to take part in his obstacle course.

Speak with Blynne while riding a horse to take on the challenge. It will cost Link 20 Rupees to play.[1] The rules of the Horseback Obstacle Course are simple. There are 10 obstacles that Link will need to jump over while on his horse. He can navigate around the lake clockwise or counterclockwise, but he must jump over all 10 obstacles. After jumping over the 10th obstacle, Link then needs to ride back to the stable to cross the finish line.[2]

Ideally, Link's horse only has to gallop full speed just once to reach the goal before Blynne's record time, but approaching the obstacles at an odd angle may cause the horse to avoid them or rear, losing time. The optimal angle of approach for the obstacles is 90 degrees perpendicularly, so it's okay to accommodate for the correct angle with enough terrain for the horse to canter and clear the obstacles comfortably and unimpeded.

  1. Great! There's just the little matter of the entry fee. That'll be 20 rupees. - Blynne
  2. Ride your horse around this grass field while jumping the obstacles. There are 10 obstacles, all told. You don't get to cross the finish line 'tile you've jumped them all. When you clear the last one, ride back here. Simple, right? Don't dismount your horse, or you're out of the running. Not that you need telling, right? The difficult part about this is the fact that you can't just try to recklessly ride as fast as you can. In order to clear the obstacles on the path, you have to be able to control your horse very well. If you can beat my personal best time, I'll give you some mighty find horse gear. - Blynne
