The Hornist’s Dramatic Escape quest location – Zelda TotK

The Stable Trotters’ hornist can be found in Hyrule Ridge, with the map unlocked using the Lindor’s Brow Skyview Tower. He and his wagon are stuck in a hole, just off the main path below Nero Hill. From the Tabantha Bridge Stable, you can cross the Tabantha Great Bridge and follow the main path west to find the hornist.


You can complete this quest at any time, but he will not appear at the stable until you have helped the Violinist at the Woodland Stable. You will also need to visit the Lucky Clover Gazette near the entrance to the Rito Village before starting that quest.
