Horse in Minecraft
The Horse in Minecraft is a passive mob that the players can tame and then ride. They come in different colors in the world!
The horse spawns in plains or savannas in packs of 2-6 and can either be white, black, creamy, chestnut, brown, grey or dark brown. They have unique coats and are different from one another and in total there are 35 variants.
An untamed horse will drop the players and if the player tries to saddle it, it will flail and jump to resist. Players need to tame them before riding.
Drops, Breeding & Armor
The Horses drop Leather and Experience when killed. Players can breed horses by feeding them Golden Apples or Golden Carrots, upon which they spawn a horse foal. It also restores their heath bar if they are injured.
The horse can also be given a horse armor to make it resistant to damage. The horse armors are classified as :
- Diamond Horse Armor
- Leather Horse Armor
- Iron Horse Armor
- Gold Horse Armor
How to tame a Horse in Minecraft?
Players can tame a horse just by clicking and trying to ride it enough times. Horses have a temper meter which is set the first time the player tries to ride it. Upon each try the meter rises and gets closer to being tame.
Players can feed it Wheat to make the temper meter rise faster so that it becomes tame more easily. Mounting it enough times will then show hearts rising from the Horse, which means that it has been successfully tamed.
However, players still cannot ride the horse as there is no saddle to control it. Click here to see how to build a saddle and go on adventures with your new stead!
