- "A mysterious bridle made with forgotten ancient technology. Equipping a horse with this will maximize their abilities, increasing the number of spurs associated with them."
- — Ancient Bridle description
The Ancient Bridle is a key item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a thematic bridle built from Ancient Sheikah technology that Link can equip to his horse. It can be obtained upon "The Champions' Ballad" DLC pack 2 installation. Unlike other bridles, the Ancient Bridle has a special attribute and is not simply cosmetic. It gives any horse equipped with thr Bridle two extra spurs.
Equipping this bridle on a 2/5/3 wild horse results in the all-around fastest horse in the game, with 5 speed and 5 spurs. These horses are typically found south of Hebra Tower near Serrene Stable, by gliding down and looking for solid-colored horses with three spurs.

Upon installation, Link will receive a new Side Quest called "EX Ancient Horse Rumors". The Sheikah Slate Adventure Log directs Link to Highland Stable to read Volume 3 of Super Rumor Mill to discover the locations of the Ancient Bridle and Saddle. The book directs Link to Satori Mountain in the Hyrule Ridge region. There Link can find an EX Treasure Chest buried under cherry blossoms next to the cherry blossom tree growing on the mountain. The chest contains the Ancient Bridle and can be dug up with the Magnesis Rune.
