Although Tears of the Kingdom may look and play similar to Breath of the Wild, there are numerous differences and upgrades. One thing that has changed is the stables across Hyrule. Now in the sequel, they operate a Pony Points Program, which can give you plenty of useful rewards. If you’re wondering how to earn and use Pony Points in Tears of the Kingdom, you came to the right place.

How to earn Pony Points in Tears of the Kingdom
The first time you visit a stable in Hyrule, talk to the clerk at the desk from the outside. If you remember from Breath of the Wild, the inside desk deals with lodging, while the outside desk deals with horse inquiries. Once you interact with them, they’ll give you a Pony Points Card to keep track of your Pony Points. Not only that, but they’ll start you off with one point. But how can you earn Pony Points in the first place?
- Registering new horses – Each time you register a new horse with a stable, you receive one Pony Point
- Finding new stables: Discovering any new stable will earn you one Pony Point
- Lodging at stables – Sleeping at any stable will earn you one Pony Point
- ‘The Incomplete Stable’ quest – Fix the stables at Lookout Landing to receive one Pony Point
This list may increase the further we explore Tears of the Kingdom. But for now, these are the ways you can earn yourself some Pony Points.
