How to Get The Golden Horse in Tears of the Kingdom & Location

To get to the Golden Horse in the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you must complete the Zelda’s Golden Horse side quest at Snowfiled Stable.

Upon completing this quest, you will be able to register and name the Golden Horse.

Before you start your journey to get the Golden Horse, you’ll need to know how to increase your cold resistance in TOTK. This is because the Golden Horse is found in the freezing cold Tabantha Tundra.

  • Head to the Lucky Clover Gazette.
    • This is located just to the east of Rito Village.
  • Speak with Traysi and Penn to start the Potential Princess Sightings side quest.

    • Speak to Harlow again, and she will give you an Energizing Elixir.
