Zelda Tears of the Kingdom: How to catch and register a horse


JUST like Breath of the Wild, Tears of the Kingdom takes place in a huge open world.

If you have played The Legend of Zelda: BOTW then you will know just how useful having your own horse is.

There are now new methods of getting around.

Later on you can build and ride your own vehicles, but catching a horse is always good in a pinch.

Here is everything you need to know about catching and registering your horse in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to get a catch a horse in Tears of the Kingdom

The easiest way to catch a horse is to steal one from an enemy.

A number of Bokoblin’s ride horses as they shoot arrows at you, and these horses are more tame than the ones you find in the wild.

If you shoot your own arrow at the Bokoblin it will fall off its horse, and you can then mount it yourself.

As these are tame already, you don’t have to worry about it kicking you off.

You can of course catch your own horse, though these are harder to mount and tame.

To do this you will need to sneak up on a group of horses. Remember that as soon as they spot you, they will run away.

When you get close to one you can press A to mount them, and then mash L to soothe them.

The stronger the horse the more it will fight you, and holding on requires stamina.

If you can see you are close to running out of stamina, you can eat some stamina restoring food so you can continue fighting.

How to register your horse in Tears of the Kingdom

Registering a horse is almost identical to how it is done in Breath of the Wild.

There is a stable in each region of the map where you can register your horse in exchange for 20 rupees.

You need to be mounted in order to do this, and you can target the receptionist at the stable with ZL.

Press A to talk to them, and then you will see the option to register your ride.

Once registered you can pick up your horse from any stables, and you can also whistle to get them to come to you.
