Zelda Tears of the Kingdom guide: How to catch a Horse
In order to catch a horse in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you’re going to have to employ stealth.
First, you’ll need to find horses, they usually roam in the fields near the smaller towns on the map, and the first and most easy place to find them is to the west of Lookout Landing.
Once you’ve located the group of horses that you want to try to catch, you’re going to have to crouch far away from them and begin slowly moving your analog stick toward them.
If you move too quickly, they’ll get spooked and shoot off in random directions. However, if you get close enough, you’ll be given the prompt to mount them.
Once you’ve done this, the real difficulty begins. In order to catch a horse, you have to soothe it, which boils down to holding the L on the controller while it tries to buck you off.
While some horses will calm down after a short amount of time, there are others that are so aggressive that even with two full bars of stamina, we couldn’t tame them.
