Elden Ring Horse Location & Summon Guide

Below is the complete guide on how to get the horse in-game.

If you’re starting up a brand new game, then finding the Elden Ring Horse location should be the first thing on your list. Elden Ring is massive, so traversing its many different regions is going to be almost impossible without your trusty new mount by your side. 

Key Takeaways
  • Find three Sites of Grace in the open world or in Legacy dungeons.
  • Rest at the Gatefront Site of Grace to trigger a cutscene and obtain the Elden Ring Horse.
  • Talk to Melina to receive the Spectral Steed Whistle.
  • Assign the Spectral Steed Whistle to your Pouch and use it to summon or dismiss your horse, Torrent.

The name of this mount is Torrent, and it’s defined by the game as a Spectral Steed that the player can summon to themselves.

To get the Torrent, find at least three Sites of Grace in the game and rest at them. However, it is not that simple.

I was personally also confused by this at first since I had already rested at well over five sites during my playthrough, and nothing was happening. The issue was that only Sites of Grace in the open world and in Legacy dungeons count towards the total and not the ones found inside areas. 

Now, if you’re playing the game in a straightforward manner like me, your first three Sites of Graces should be in the following order:

  1. The First Step: This is found as soon as you leave the tutorial dungeon. Right before this point, you make your character and decide on an Elden Ring Starting Class.
  2. Church of Elleh: You can find this inside the destroyed church north of The First Step.
  3. Gatefront: Directly north of the Church of Elleh, this site can be found past a small forest.

As soon as players rest at the Gatefront Site of Grace, a cutscene should trigger, and the Maiden Melina will appear to give players access to Torrent, the horse. Without the horse, traveling in Elden Ring would have been impossible for me. So, make sure to get it as soon as possible.

How To Summon The Elden Ring Horse

Spectral Steed Whistle Item

During your interaction with Melina, she provides the Spectral Steed Whistle, an unlimited-use item summoning Torrent instantly. You need not manually mount; the Torrent appears between your legs. Pressing the whistle button while mounted dismisses the Elden Ring horse.

To streamline summoning, assign the Spectral Steed Whistle to your Pouch. Open the menu, move to Pouch slots, and allocate the item. Now, holding ‘Y’ on Xbox or ‘Triangle’ on PlayStation activates the Spectral Steed Whistle from the bottom left corner for quick access, especially in the midst of battle.
