Epona Slide

If you press A to dismount 1 frame after letting go of R, Link will dismount Epona while still moving and slide on the ground for a moment before gaining control again. This can be used to cross voids as Epona won't fall during the dismount animation, or can be combined with a brakeslide to achieve high movement speeds.

How To

  1. Hold R while on Epona to make Link crouch
  2. Let go of R and 1 frame later press A to dismount Epona
  3. Epona should keep moving forward while Link dismounts and slides on the ground slightly

Uses

Gorge Slide

If you start an Epona slide while still on land, and then cross over a void, Epona won't fall while Link dismounts. Holding forward on the control stick will make Link hop forward so you can grab the ledge
