Blynne is a character in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Blynne is a Hylian who works at Highland Stable. He grew up taming Horses in the area, making him confident he's the best rider in Hyrule Kingdom.[2] When Link first approaches him, Blynne asks if he's a nomad and supposes he's already seen the Horses nearby.[3]

To prove his superiority with Horses, Blynne has developed a test to see who's better riding Horses, and he never loses.[4] He'll ask Link if he has the grit to challenge the master,[5] His test is a horseback obstacle course with ten different obstacles, and whoever has the best time wins.[6] He guarantees that his race will help people master riding Horses.[7] However, Blynne notes that the difficult part is controlling one's Horse.[8] He promises Link horse gear if he can beat his time.[9]

During the rain, Blynne will retreat into the stable. He won't feel like running his course, and he tells Link to come beat his time when the sun is out.[10]

If Link tries to start the challenge without a Horse, Blynne will stop him.[11] He tells Link to come back with a Horse when he's serious.[12]

Entering the Obstacle Course will require a 20 Rupees fee.[13] Before the race, he'll explain that Link must jump all of the obstacles before crossing the finish line.[14] He also forbids Link from dismounting his horse.[15]

When Link finishes but doesn't beat Blynne's time, Blynne will say he's impressed and gift Link a Swift Carrot for his Horse.[16] He'll yell at Link if he gets off his Horse during the race.[17] He notices something is eating at Link and says he'll need an attitude adjustment.[18]

Blyne first suggests that Link aims to complete his race in less that one minute and thirty seconds.[19] Once Link beats this time, he'll admit that he gets better every time he rides.[20] As a reward for this, he'll give Link the Extravagant Bridle.[21] Blynne's own record is one minute and fifteen seconds.[22] If Link beats his record, Blynne states he never thought he'd see the day.[23] He'll give Link the Extravagant Saddle as a reward.[24]
