Giant Horse


Cannot reach fast speeds
Max strength



"This giant horse is the last of its kind. Its physical capabilities completely overshadow those of regular horses, but its temperament is extremely wild. Only a truly skilled rider can train, or even catch, this beast of a mount. This is a horse that chooses its rider."

— Hyrule Compendium Entry

The Giant Horse is a special type of Horse found in Breath of the Wild. There is only one to be found in Hyrule, and it rests in the Taobab Grasslands, in the Lake Region. It can be found in a clearing surrounded by other horses. It is easily distinguishable, since it is much larger than other horses. It's assumed to be related to Ganondorf's horse.

Link must tame this beast and ride it back to the Mounted Archery Camp in order to complete the side-quest Hunt for the Giant Horse. It's required for the player to press the soothe button 30 times before Link's stamina runs out. This includes coming across two Lynels on the way south.

Once registered, this horse cannot be fitted with other saddle or bridle than the ones provided, and its mane cannot be changed.

As part of the quest Good-Sized Horse, the Giant Horse cannot be sold to Zyle, as he refuses to buy it since it's too big for him to ride.
