"You got the horse call! Ilia made this just for Epona."
— In-game description
Horse Call Item Sprite

The Horse Call, also known as Ilia's Charm, is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This unique, woodwind instrument which resembles a horseshoe is given to Link by Impaz, though he cannot use it until he shows it to Ilia. The instrument can summon Epona when "Epona's Song" is played on it outdoors, meaning it is, in effect, a portable version of Horse Grass.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

The Horse Call serves as the final key to restoring Ilia's lost memories. Originally, Ilia leaves the instrument with Impaz, who later requests of Link to return it to Ilia after he dispatches all the Bulblins in the Hidden Village. After Ilia regains her memories, she is able to present Link with the instrument, as well as disclose her previous intention to give it to him before he left for Hyrule Castle.
