A Stalhorse is an undead skeletal Horse reanimated by Ganon's magic.[2] However, Stalhorses behave and function like regular Horses and pose no threat to Link. They only appear at night, as they cannot maintain their bone structure during the day.[2] If a Stalhorse is present as the sun rises, it will fall to pieces and disappear. They are usually encountered with Stalkoblins or Bokoblins riding on their backs. Due to a lack of stomach, Stalhorses will not eat Carrots or Apples and they cannot be registered at a Stable. If Link tries to register a one at a Stable, the Stable owner will call it a monster and refuse to board it, as it might eat the other Horses.[3] Wearing the Radiant Set causes Stalhorses to run at high speeds when ridden.

Stalhorses serve a role in the "Stalhorse: Pictured!" Side Quest. If Juannelle is spoken to at Snowfield Stable, she will state that she has heard there is a Stalhorse is in the area, but it is too cold for her to search for it.[4] Juannelle will offer to give Link a reward if he brings her some notes or a picture of the Stalhorse.[5] Based on the rumor, she advises Link to try and find a Stalhorse, along with its Stalkoblin rider in the North Tabantha Snowfield,[6] but states that a picture of a Stalhorse from any location would work. If a Picture of the Stalhorse is shown to Juannelle, she will be startled by its appearance, saying that it looks like a monster. She then rewards Link with a Silver Rupee and the Side Quest is complete.[7]
