The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild offers players the ability to explore its world in a plethora of unique ways, from paragliding to Sand Seal surfing. One of the best ways is to obtain one of few unique horses available as mounts.

One of these unique mounts is a large, black stallion with an orange mane and tail. It’s a steed truly worthy of the Gerudo villain, able to trample just about anything underneath its hooves.

However, taming this beast is no easy matter. It takes stamina, patience, and some pretty refined skills in button-mashing. The steed is also a bit reclusive, and danger lurks around every corner on the path to finding it.

The horse can be found in the Taobab Grassland, which is in the Lake region, west of Lake Hylia. If you travel to the Owa Daim Shrine, you’ll be able to paraglide to the cliffs of Mt. Faloraa to the south. Once you reach them, just look to the west and you’ll be able to spot it.

If you take the other way, from the Faron Grasslands, be careful! Enemies such as lynels and bokoblins, amongst others can be found around almost every corner. If you’re not prepared to handle them, or want to just skip the pain altogether, go the Owa Daim route.

When you spot the Giant Horse, it’ll be easy to see how it gained the moniker. It easily towers over the other horses in the vicinity.

In order to tame the horse, the method remains the same as with all others. Sneak up to it, or paraglide over it to mount it. Then, you’ll just need to continually hit the L button to soothe the horse until you tame it.

It’s going to take a little over two full stamina wheels to tame it, so unless you come prepared with elixirs or stamina-enhancing foods, you might want to wait until later in the game before you attempt to tame this horse.

Once you do tame the Giant Horse, you’ll discover that the horse can be pretty unruly. It doesn’t like to listen to commands and will try to disobey you when it can. Fortunately, it tames pretty easily as long as you soothe it every time it attempts to disobey you.

From here, you’ll just need to take it to Highland Stables and get it registered. You’ll notice on your ride to the stables that the horse doesn’t have a stamina stat. Though it is slow, it can keep up a pace continually and will never tire once up to full speed.

It has a five-star strength stat as well, so feel free to run over a few bokoblins on your way.
