So I was getting the giant horse, as usual, in BOTW post-game on my all shrines save file, and then while I was getting it to the nearest stable to register it, it got killed by a Lynel. Will it respawn? I already tried the horse fairy. It didn’t work because it wasn’t registered. I think I may have tried a blood moon, but it wasn’t there. Is there any way to get it back without restarting my save file?

It appears that all horses will eventually respawn in the local areas where they are originally found, just based on other players' experience.

From a GameFAQs thread:

I confirmed that you can release the giant or white horse then find them again in their respective places.

And another GameFAQs thread:

So I released [the giant horse]. Then I checked if it respawns in Taobab Grassland and yes, it does (what a relief).


yes, the giant horse will be there again you just have to wait and do another quest, and then it should be there.it took me a while to get the horse too but I figured it out sorry if this was not helpful


It will eventually respawn. Special horses like the giant horse cannot be revived by the horse god.

  • @Riles Um... Wrigglenite mentioned that the OP already knows that, so you didn't help. Also, I've flagged your comment. This kind of comment is rare and I have no idea how it's still not deleted.

if the giant horse is registered, and it has fallen, Malanya will indeed revive it. Mine got hit by a guardian laser and died at hyrule castle, and I revived it with no problem.

    The OP quite plainly states that the horse was not registered as the horse died on the way to get registered so this does not answer the actual question. Commented Mar 3, 2021 at 5:38
