Climb the hill behind the village of Hateno to get a good jump point and use your paraglider to head towards the beach. You’ll spot Ganon’s horse almost immediately, given that it’s significantly larger than the other horse nearby. Be sure to take a photo with your camera for the Compendium.

How to tame Ganon’s horse in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
To tame Ganon’s horse in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll need just over two full bars of stamina. You can improve your stamina by trading Light of Blessings for Goddess Statues. You can also cook meals that greatly increase your maximum stamina, such as those containing Endura Carrots.
Once you’re sure you have the right stamina to tame Ganon’s horse, you’ll need to sneak up behind him. Consider taking stealth elixirs with you or wearing clothing that increases your stealth stats.
Don’t approach directly behind the creature, as you might get a quick kick to the head. Instead, slowly mount from behind, but to one side of the horse until you see the “Mount” prompt. Press ZL to calm him down, until Ganon’s horse stops trying to knock you out.
Tips for riding Ganon’s horse in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Now, it’s important to point out that while Ganon’s horse is a very interesting and visually impressive horse in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, it can be an absolute nightmare to ride.
This is because of his wild temper, which causes him to regularly disobey your instructions. The main thing here is to make sure you soothe him with ZL whenever he starts nudging you. After a while, your bond will increase (your bond level can be checked at a stable) and Ganon’s horse will become much easier to control.
The main reason to tame Ganon’s horse is its high strength attribute. You can pretty much use it as a battering ram, as it will go through enemies without flinching at all. In some circumstances, you can take out large groups of enemies with one shot with this method, so be sure to give it a try and crash into some Bokoblins when you get the chance.
