The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gives the player innumerable ways to explore its vast and interesting world. Amongst the normal variety of horses exists a few special mounts and ways to get around Hyrule.

One of these special mounts is called the Royal White Stallion, a beautiful white horse with increased stats compared to other steeds.

The Royal White Stallion is said to be the living descendant of Princess Zelda’s royal steed, which was rumored to have escaped and fled to Safula Hill after the fall of Hyrule to Calamity Ganon.

If you speak to a man named Toffa at the Outskirt Stable, he’ll tell you about a story his grandfather would tell him growing up about the stallion. Afterward, he’ll give you a side quest called The Royal White Stallion, your indication to begin hunting for the rare steed.

Alternatively, it’s not a requirement that you speak to Toffa first, so don’t be worried if you manage to tame the horse before you speak to him. In fact, speaking to Toffa isn’t required to get the horse at all, but rather the Royal Bridle and Royal Saddle, a unique bridle/saddle combo.

The quest will direct you to head to Safula Hill, just past Sanidin Park Ruins. To get there from Outskirt Stables, take the road north, turning left at the first intersection. Cross Manhala Bridge and follow the road right, around, and up a hill.

From here, just take a look around and you should be able to spot the stallion. Beyond its increased stats, this horse is different from others in that it is incredibly skittish. It will bolt at the slightest sound or glimpse, so it’s recommended you come prepared with a way to increase your stealth.

You can do so by creating/buying elixirs that increase your stealth, eating food with stealth boosts, wearing the Sheikah armor set, or if you want to be thorough, any combination thereof.

Alternatively like with other horses, paragliding over them and mounting them from the air also works. However, in addition to increased stealth, you’ll also need increased stamina in order to tame the steed.

It takes around two full stamina wheels in order to soothe the Royal White Stallion, so you’ll want to come prepared with some stamina elixirs or stamina-increasing food. If you’ve completed any of the Shrines, taming the horse will probably be easier if you’ve obtained any stamina vessels.

Once you’ve caught it, just be sure to backtrack to the Outskirt Stable and register it! The horse comes with 3 stars in strength, 4 stars in stamina, and 5 stars in speed, so beyond obtaining Epona, this horse is amongst the best you can obtain in the game.
