There are a wide variety of mounts you can ride in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and you may want to add as many as possible to your stable so you can call on them whenever you’d like. But what if you could add a massive horse to that lineup and summon the towering beast anytime you’d like? Well, good news – you can do precisely that by taming the giant horse. This beautiful oversized mount doesn’t take much beyond a good bit of stamina and a bit of patience, so let’s take a look at where you can find it.

How to get the giant horse in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The giant horse can be found to the east of the Horse God Bridge in Faron. You’ll spot this beautiful animal in a gorge, wandering around next to some waterfalls. As with any horse in the game, you can simply approach it slowly and quietly, then quickly press the A button to mount it. However, calming it down is another story, as you’ll need a lot of stamina to relax this gigantic equine. If you start running low, eat some stamina-regenerating food to help keep you in the struggle.

The giant horse sports a whopping 5-star Strength, but it won’t be the fastest mount in the game at only 2-star Speed. Even so, riding around on this majestic creature can be quite a treat, so it’s worth adding it to your collection either way. Be sure you head to Highland Stable to the northeast of where you found the giant horse and register it there for future rides.

Where to find Wild Greens

The most important thing to note with this quest is the item you need is actually the Sundelion. The game is purposely vague, making it difficult to know what the actual item you need is. These items are found in various locations around Hyrule, but the most consistent way to find them is to visit a Sky Island around the following coordinates: -2,184, 0966, 1637.

How to find the Fifth Sage in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

For as open and freeform as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is, even allowing you to skip essentially every quest in the game and go straight to the final boss, you will be missing a ton by doing so. At the very least, most players will want to complete all the main quests before marching into the final encounter, which will take many hours. One quest is taking some adventurers a long time to complete, not due to its difficulty, but because they have no idea how to complete it.

The Fifth Sage quest is one of the most enigmatic in the entire game in what you're supposed to do to complete it. You're only given a single clue, and it's not a very helpful one at that.
