To equip the Ancient Bridle and Ancient Saddle you must speak to a stablehand located at various stables – like Phanna at the Highland Stable. If the horse has a maximum bond rating, you can swap out their bridle and saddle.
Since Epona cannot wear the Ancient Bridle or Ancient Saddle, the 4/4/5 “balanced horse” completely outclasses her now. Epona has the unique ability of recharging spurs faster than other horses, which helped her edge out against the 4/4/5 “balanced horse” in a long-distance race.
Sadly, you can’t customize the bridle, saddle, or mane on the Giant Horse. … It also meshes nicely with those weird blue horses you’ll find all over the place.
There is no way to rename a horse in the game. … At least we know that the special ones respawn when released, and you can always load your save over and over to get horses in the field to appear in different colors to help catch another version of a normal horse we want to rename.
The Monster Saddle in Breath of the Wild is purely cosmetic, like any other saddle. … Here’s everything you need to do to get the Monster Saddle, even if it’s simply a cosmetic item (and not a super-cool secret item that can let you register special Breath of the Wild mounts like it should be).
Horse customization in Zelda BoTW
We know for sure you can use Highland and Foothill stables. You also have to build up your bond with the mount you want to customize. When it’s at its maximum, talk to the one feeding the animals. They’ll give you the option to change the mane (both style and color), saddle and bridle.
The Giant Horse is mortal, like any other horse. … yes the giant horse can die, but if you wish to get it again untamed you can, or you could also use the horse fairy southeast of the highland stable to revive the horse tamed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Epona can only be summoned by an amiibo – it is impossible to obtain this horse otherwise!
How to kill a horse. Yes, sadly, it can happen. Yes, sadly, we learned the hard way. This, sadly, was a special horse.
You can get it if you have the Smash Bros. Series Link Amiibo. I don’t have it, so no Epona for me 🙁 You cannot give it a different name, nor can you change the bridle or saddle.
Epona is arguably best mount that can be registered in the game, but you won’t find the iconic horse anywhere in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You’ll need to employ a special method using the Smash Bros. Series Link Amiibo.
