Location and Uses
The Royal Saddle is a Saddle that can be obtained from Toffa by completing the Side Quest "The Royal White Stallion". Prior to the second Great Calamity, Zelda equipped her White Horse with the custom-made Royal Saddle and its counterpart, the Royal Bridle, as part of an attempt to bond with her Horse. Following the Great Calamity, Toffa's grandfather inherited the Royal Saddle and passed it down to Toffa. By registering the White Horse at a Stable and showing it to Toffa, the elderly man will gift Link the Royal Saddle and equip it onto the Horse, even if the Bond between Link and the White Horse is weak.
The Saddle can be equipped to any other Horse, except for Epona and the Giant Horse, after Link maxes out the Bond with his Horse and speaking to Canni at the Outskirt Stable, Phanna at the Highland Stable, Breen at the Woodland Stable, and Tenne at the South Akkala Stable.

- "What? You brought the royal family's white horse? Well I'll be... Grandpa wasn't lying! Son, you just made my life. Staying alive in this godforsaken land may just have been worth it after all. I've got a surprise for you. My grandpa handed this down to me, and now I'm handing it down to you. I present to you...the royal family's saddle and bridle! Custom fitted for the white royal horse!" — Toffa (Breath of the Wild)
