Zelda’s Golden Horse – Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Find Zelda's Golden Horse to have the best horse in Zelda: TotK.

Zelda’s Golden Horse is a side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that is associated with the Potential Princess Sightings quest. You must find and return Zelda’s golden horse that ran away from the stable.

In this guide, we will teach you how to start this quest and find the golden horse. While it sounds easy, mounting Zelda’s horse is not as easy as other wild horses. Let’s begin. Shall we?

Talk to Harlow at Snowfield Stable

Finding the Golden Horse is a very long and daunting task. There are a lot of steps to follow in a specific order but worry not, we will guide you through each step one by one.

As soon as you activate the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower, you will notice a Rito standing beside its front door. His name is Penn, and he is a journalist for the Lucky Clover Gazette. He will invite you to visit his office and join them as a junior reporter. Doing so will start the Potential Princess Sightings side quest.


If you visit Snowfield before starting the Potential Princess Sightings side quest, Zelda’s Golden Horse will be in the stable.

After talking to him, make your way to Snowfield Stable. The stable’s exact location is marked on the map, and it is to the South of Tabantha Tundra. Its coordinates on the map are (-1643, 2583, 0233). The nearest shrine is the Nouda Shrine.

Talk to Harlow, who is a stable girl, at the Snowfield Stable. You will notice Penn interviewing Harlow near the stable. Apparently, the Golden Horse saw Princess Zelda and went after her.

Harlow appears very distressed and asks you to bring back the Golden Horse. She will point North across the Tabantha Tundra. This will start “Zelda’s Golden Horse” side quest.

Find and retrieve Zelda’s Golden Horse

Make your way to the position marked on the map. Beware of a Snow Gleeok in the area. There are a lot of Ice Lizalfos hiding in the snow, so use a fire weapon to kill them instantly.

After reaching the marked location, you will notice the Golden Horse standing among other wild horses. Stealthily make your way towards its back and mount it.

As a rare horse in the game, it is very difficult to sneak up on the Golden Horse and calm it down. Make sure to sprint towards it once a few steps are left and mash the A button to mount it.

You will need a full stamina wheel to calm it down. Once you manage to calm it down, bring the Golden Horse back to the Snowfield Stable. This will complete the Zelda’s Golden Horse side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Quest Rewards

Harlow will give you the Royal Bridle and Royal Saddle as a reward. Penn will give you a Purple Rupee (50 rupees) for completing his first job as a reporter. Harlow will ask you to keep the Golden Horse and look after it until Princess Zelda returns. Register the Golden Horse at the Snowfield Stable to keep it forever and earn a Pony Point.
