Link Riding a horse in LoZ: BotW.

Link can ride a horse in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Overview[edit]

Link can tame and ride horses.

Useful for travelling long distances.

Taming[edit]

You can tame horses by feeding them or by riding them.

Horses with spots, or patches are gentle in nature and thus easier to tame. Solid color, or horses with a white face and feet are wild and much more challenging to tame.
