Capturing the Golden Horse from Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Just like Breath of the Wild before it, Zelda Tears of the Kingdom has some rare mounts to find and tame. Among them are the Golden Horse of Princess Zelda. But to capture this special horse, you need to know where it is.
Find the Golden Horse
The capture of the golden horse is the subject of a quest from the Relais des Prairies Gelées (coordinates -1643; 2582; 0233;). To activate this quest, you will need to have already visited the Wood Gazette, in front of the Pigeon Village (coordinates -3254; 1763; 0119;) and having been recruited by Bourgette and Penn.
Penn is in the middle of a discussion in front of the barn. The stable manager explains that Princess Zelda had entrusted him with a Golden Horse. After the cataclysm, the princess would have returned to the relay but the horse got scared when he saw her. He fled to the northern confines of Hebra.
The golden horse has in fact taken refuge among a herd of wild horses, north of the snowy plain (Coordinates -1818; 3382; 0235;) You are advised not to cross the plain through its centre, as an Ice Gleeok lurks there and can see you from a great distance. Instead, go around the east side of the area before returning to the centre.
Riding the Golden Horse
To ride the Golden Horse, you must use the same strategy as for riding a normal horse. Approach it discreetly on its side and jump on it or slowly approach them holding an apple in your hands.
Once on the horse, it may struggle before you can control it. Press the L button repeatedly until he calms down. You will probably need a stamina bar slightly higher than a full circle to tame him.
When you are finally in control of the horse, all you have to do is take it back to the relay, always being careful of the Ice Gleeok. The stable manager will then offer you to keep the horse and will even offer you a royal saddle and a royal harness.
Don't forget to bring the horse to the ticket office for register it and give it a name so you can pick up your golden horse at any other relay.
