Are you tired of trudging through the vast and treacherous world of Elden Ring on foot? Do you wish you could swiftly summon a trusty steed to carry you across its sprawling landscapes? Well, I can help you out.

Let me show you how to summon a horse in Elden Ring for quick access to unlimited travel. So say goodbye to blisters and sore feet and hello to the freedom of riding through this fantastical realm on the back of your very own equine companion. 

Summoning a Horse in Elden Ring

You can summon a horse in Elden Ring by moving your Spectral Steed Whistle to an empty slot in your Quick Item Tab. Once you do that, simply press ‘’E,’’ and then press the key your Spectral Steed Whistle is activated with.

If you’re unsure where to begin and how to obtain Spectral Steed Whistle, stay with me on this quick journey, and follow the next steps:

Find the Spectral Steed Whistle

The first step to summoning a horse in Elden Ring is related to the particular site of grace. Namely, you’ll need to find the Spectral Steed Whistle at a certain spot on the map: 

  1. Right after you enter the open world, go straight to the Church of Elleh. This church is right in front of you, so there’s no way you’ll miss it.
  2. Once you reach the destination (literally takes less than a minute), you’ll want to head North-East straight to the Gatefront.
  3. The path will take you through the forest, but the moment you exit, you’ll see a massive gate on your left-hand side. 
  4. Run towards the gate, and you’ll locate a site of grace. 
  5. Discover the site of grace and rest at it.

When you decide to rest at this site of grace, you’ll meet a lovely lady called Melina. She will tell you her story, and you must accept her help after the cutscene.

She will eventually give you your first Mount Torrent, the Spectral Steed Whistle. And now, you’re ready to summon a horse.
