Horse Attributes

This magnificent beast is regarded as one of the unique horses due to his attributes. On top of everything, it has Unlimited Stamina which makes it a perfect choice for traveling to far places and easier exploring. Furthermore, this also makes it a great companion for side quests.

Next on the list is the strength of the horse, which is remarkably high: 5 stars. This makes it strong and resilient in mounted combat. Combined with his agility, you can easily take down enemies in fights. You can also train your horse for more combat-effective moves such as charging attacks or step attacks.

However, this horse still has some drawbacks. This is not one of the fastest horses out there, which means that you will have to compromise on the pace. In addition, it has a bad temper, making it difficult to tame.

  • You will find the stallion at the end of this road.

Capturing The Horse

To make it easier to capture the horse, we recommend taking down your noisy gear to increase your stealth since you must sneak up on the Great White Stallion.

You should also have Stamina replenishing consumables because the horse will exhaust your stamina while being tamed. Moreover, you must have a supply of Energizing Elixir and use it when your bar of stamina expires.

How To Approach The Horse

There are 2 ways to approach the Great White Stallion.

The first way includes in which you need to enter stealth mode. If you make more noise, the horse will notice you, so you must sneak up on him slowly. When you reach close enough to the stallion, you must mount it.

The second way is to paraglide directly onto the horseback from the top of the canyon. This requires more precision since you have to land on his back. Moreover, the glider will also consume some of your stamina, so we don’t recommend this method.

Taming the horse

Once mounted, you must repeatedly keep pressing the button to Soothe him. This process will exhaust your stamina so make sure to refill it otherwise, the horse will throw you off his back. Eventually, the horse will be tamed and now you can ride it back to the stable.

Registering The Horse

Unfortunately, the Great White Stallion cannot be upgraded further, even by the Horse God. However, the good news is that you can still customize this according to your desire, but with limited options.   

This is all you need to know about the Great White Stallion in Tears of the Kingdom. Remember to have enough stamina and patience to tame the horse. You can acquire this early in the game making it a great companion for your adventures.
