How to Transfer Horses from BotW to TotK

To transfer and import horses from Zelda BotW to Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you first have to make sure that you have your old save file on the console you’re playing TOTK on. If you played Breath of the Wild on a different Switch, then you’ll have to upload the save file to the cloud and then download it to the Tears of the Kingdom Switch. On the other hand, if the save was already on the cloud, just download it to your current console. You might also need the same profile. Once that’s over and done with, load up Tears of the Kingdom and head to any stable. Whichever one is closest to you at the moment will do perfectly fine.

The next step to import or transfer your Zelda BotW horses to Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is to speak with the stable owner, aka the person behind the counter. They will tell you that you can get your Breath of the Wild horses. Just follow the prompts, and soon enough, you’ll be able to import every horse you’ve had registered in Breath of the Wild. Mind you, they do have to be registered. You can’t just get every single steed you’ve ever rode on. However, you can get Epona, or the Great Horse, or whichever ones you want. Do note that it seems people with Master Mode save files are having some trouble importing their horses.
