Spot Stats

These are the following stats for the horse Spot.

  • Strength: 4 Stars
  • Speed: 3 Stars
  • Stamina: 3 Stars
  • Pull: 2 Stars
  • Temperament: Wild

The stats tell you the strong points of your horse. Depending on the stats, you can use your horse for different environments. For example, if you want to go into an area where a lot of enemies will spawn and hit you, then you need a horse with good strength so it can withstand the attacks. Or if you need to avoid enemy attacks, a more-speed horse will suit you.


The strength of a horse tells how much the horse can get hit instead of hitting. The endurance of a horse to take damage is also vital when traveling in an area where there are usually enemies. The higher the horse’s strength, the higher its Health Points. So a horse with more strength will be more resilient and can also take more fall damage comparatively.


Speed is straightforward; It is the pace the horse can go at. The higher the speed, the faster you will reach your destinations but be careful as the faster horse is also harder to control due to less stability.


It is how much your horse can run before it runs out of breath. Stamina is used by a horse when running at full speed, and after it runs out, the horse returns to a normal pace. A horse with higher Stamina is preferred. It can save you from enemy encounters and help you in the Long run, pun intended.


This is a unique stat that tells how heavy of a cart the horse can pull. This stat is more precisely needed in some side quests as there is not much use of a pull stat in the normal game. However, having a higher pull rating is still preferred to help you out in some of the sidequests where you encounter its use.


A horse can have two kinds of temperament in Tears of The kingdom.

  • Gentle: These horses are easier to tame and require less Stamina. Moreover, if you bond well with this kind of horse, it will not throw you off its back if you exhaust its Stamina.
  • Wild: These horses are harder to tame and require more Stamina. Moreover, even if you bond well with this kind of horse, it will still throw you off its back if you exhaust its Stamina.

Ending Remarks

The game has many horses, and Spot might not be the best among them. However, You can do this quest quite early in the game, and it can be the horse with the best stats at the start. Doing the quest is also not that hard if you know where to look to find Spot.

So, I would say it is worth it to complete this side quest. Get yourself Spot, as it has the best stats for the starting phase of the game and is also easier to find. The best part about getting Spot is that it is one of the unique horses you can find in the game due to its appearance.
