This post describes getting your horse in Elden Ring as the first task to accomplish when players emerge from the Stranded Graveyard and Cave of Knowledge.
Torrent, Spirit Steed
You’ll need the Spectral Steed Whistle to summon your horse in Elden Ring. One obtains the Spectral Steed Whistle, automatically, when one visits the third Lost Site of Grace. Dungeon sites of grace, like the one in Groveside Cave, do not count as the sites of grace must be “outside”. Getting Torrent, the Spectral Steed, your horse in Eldin Ring, can be accomplished early on. In fact, it can be the first thing you do once you emerge into Limgrave.
One can obtain the horse in Elden Ring early on, very early on if you follow a path Northwest when you emerge from the Stranded Graveyard and Cave of Knowledge into Limgrave past the Church of Elleh and to the north of Groveside Cave where you’ll come upon the Gate of Ruins. You should encounter two Lost Sites of Grace.
The third Lost Site of Grace can be found to the Northeast near the Dragon Burnt Ruins. When visiting the your third lost site of grace, and touching the site, a movie will trigger and Melina will give you the Spectral Steed Whistle.
One must open their inventory and use the whistle to summon Torrent. There is a way to place the whistle on your “hot bar” which is different than the four icons you see in the lower left of your screen. You can also place the whistle as one of the choices when using your d pad to instantly use items, like potions, by hitting the X button.
Riding Torrent is fairly easy, use the B button to make the horse run faster. Your character, when on foot, will also sprint if you hold down the B button. One can press A twice for a high jump by the horse. One can also engage in combat from your horse and your horse can die.
