Minecraft is a popular game online where you mine for minerals, build structures, and explore the various worlds.

One of the popular activities to do is catch and tame a Minecraft horse! This is not as straight forward as you may think. You have to figure it out.

The Minecraft Horse

I couldn't help but notice that several Minecrafters are having trouble figuring out how to catch, tame and/or ride the Minecraft horse. I can help you with this endeavor!

My son is a Minecraft Guru! He's played Minecraft ever since it was introduced back in 2009. He has tamed many horses on Minecraft and told me how to do it myself, and it worked perfectly. He has given me permission to share what he taught me with you!

Find And Ride A Minecraft Horse

The Minecraft horses roam the world. You will come upon them when you are out exploring.

To tame the horse you just keep getting on him over and over until he stops bucking you off! At that point he is tame, and will not de-spawn, but you cannot control him without a saddle.

That comes to the next subject, where do you get a saddle to control the horse? You cannot craft a saddle. You must find one. Saddles can be found in several places. Chests in structures throughout the world:

  • Villages
  • Nether fortresses
  • Mineshafts
  • Dungeons
  • Etc.

Villagers also will trade saddles with you, but this process becomes fairly complex.

How To Put The Saddle On The Minecraft Horse

To put the saddle on the horse you have tamed, access inventory while riding the horse and select the saddle.

You can also put armor on your horse! Armor is found in Minecraft world like anything else you find. When you find the armor store it in your inventory and access it when you are riding.

So there it is! Enjoy your Minecraft horse!
