The Ancient Saddle is an Item in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses[]

The Ancient Saddle is a Saddle made from ancient Sheikah technology that is exclusive to The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack.[1] When the DLC is active, Link will receive the Side Quest, "EX Ancient Horse Rumors", which instructs him to read the copy of Super Rumor Mill at Highland Stable.[2] There, Link can read Super Rumor Mill V3, which explains that the saddle is found at a spring where a horse spirit resides.[3] Afterwards, Link can find the Saddle inside a metal Treasure Chest that is embedded in the ground at Malanya Spring.

Link can equip the Ancient Saddle to his Horses by talking to workers at Highland Stable, Outskirt Stable, South Akkala Stable, or Woodland Stable.[4] When equipped, Link is capable of Whistling to Warp his Horse nearly anywhere that a Horse can be present,[1] even if the Horse is out of earshot and would not be able to run to Link's location. As with other Saddles, the Ancient Saddle cannot be equipped to Epona or the Giant Horse.
