Jin and his horse

The Mount in Ghost of Tsushima (GoT) is Jin's horse and serves as his primary mode of transportation (besides walking) around island of Tsushima. This page covers information regarding the Mount system.


Mount Information


  • When selecting your horse, players are given the opportunity to select 1 of 3 (4) mounts based on color:
    • Black
    • White
    • Dapple (black/white mix) 
    • Brown (Digital Deluxe Edition)
  • Players must also choose from 1 of 3 names:
    • Nobu (Trust)
    • Sora (Sky)
    • Kage (Shadow)
  • Jin can call his horse at any given time by pressing the Left button on the D-pad.
  • Press R2 next to the horse to mount it. Press Circle to dismount.
  • For the horse to start galloping, press L3. Pressing L3 more than once will not make the horse gallop any faster or slower.
  • While Jin is riding the horse, he can pick up any resources along the way without getting off the horse.
  • As the game progresses, there are certain Skills and Techniques that can be unlocked where Jin uses his mount to execute unique attacks.
  • The horse cannot be attacked or killed by enemies. Instead, if you encounter an enemy and the fight begins, the horse will get scared and run away.
  • Jin can kill an enemy's horse with a bow and arrow
