Zelda BoTW Ancient Horse Armor – Saddle & Bridle Locations

Ancient Saddle Location

You’ll find the Ancient Saddle in the far south of the map, in the mountains by the Faron Sea. It’s in the dead end south-east from the Lake of The Horse God. The easiest way to get there is to teleport to the Highland Stable, then follow the road west. Once you get to the crossroads, take the fork leading south-east and follow it until the end.

Ancient Bridle Location

The Ancient Bridle is on the top of Satori Mountain, south-west of Hyrule Castle. The mountain is halfway between two stables, and it doesn’t really matter which one you pick. The chest will be burried under the giant cherry tree.

      Do you have the DLC? I don’t yet, so I can’t confirm. But most likely they won’t appear until after you’ve downloaded the Champions’ Ballad.

        So BOTW was a Christmas gift to my brother and I, and we were looking for the ancient saddle and bridle when we discovered that it can only be found if you have the DLC. However, because the game was a gift we have no idea whether or not the DLC was purchased with the game. I have tried to look up the differences between the two to discern which version we have and have been unsuccessful. If anyone could tell me how to know if we have DLC that would be great! Thanks!

          Just go to the title screen and it’ll say «DLC purchased» at the bottom of the menu if you have it. If it was gifted to you, I’m pretty sire the DLC is not shipped with it.

    The chests will not show up if you do not have the mission selected. Be sure to select the mission in the side quest menu before searching.

      Not exactly. You don’t need to have the side quest marked, but you do need the DLC. If you have it, they’ll be there no matter what.

      So you said that you have to select the mission, where do you do that?

    I cannot find the journal. I have found the horse god bridge and the Malanya Springs and still no chest.

      When you get to the locations you must use the ancient rune Magnesis.
