"EX Ancient Horse Rumors" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1] It is exclusive to The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack.

Overview

The Side Quest is obtained upon reaching exiting the Great Plateau and loading the overworld of Hyrule Kingdom, which can be done by Traveling, reloading a save file, dying, or leaving an Ancient Shrine. When the Quest is activated, Link will be tasked with finding a copy of the Super Rumor Mill EX, which is located at Highland Stable.[2][note 1]

At the Stable, Link can find the Super Rumor Mill V3 at the table inside. Within, Traysi discusses ancient Horse Gear.[3] Originating from Hyrule's distant past, this Horse Gear includes a Bridle that increases a Horse's stats and a Saddle that can summon a Horse to its owner's side.[4] The Bridle is rumored to be south of Hyrule Ridge, under a cherry blossom tree on a mountain where creatures gather.[5] The Saddle is rumored to be near the spring of a Horse spirit.[6]

Following these tales, Link can find the Ancient Bridle in a Treasure Chest buried under the cherry blossom tree on Satori Mountain. The Ancient Saddle is in a Treasure Chest buried behind Malanya Spring. Each Treasure Chest can be dislodged from the ground using the Magnesis Rune, allowing Link to acquire the Horse Gear within. The Side Quest is completed once both pieces of ancient Horse Gear have been obtained.[7]
