Do you love horses? If your answer is yes, I think you also love Minecraft horses. As you need a tool to speed up your journey in the game or transport chests, these animals will come to help you. More after, you can put armor on these creatures and make them ready for battle.

In this guide, we will show you what your feet horses are in Minecraft, how to make them ready for riding, and what is the best Minecraft horse in the game.

And everything about Minecraft donkeys is here.

How to get a horse in Minecraft?

Finding Minecraft horses are too easy. You can find these lovely animals spawning in plains and savannas in herds of around two to six. All herds are the same color, but markings can be different for each horse. You can also find horses in villages, naturally generating stables, or animal pens.

To know more about Minecraft horses, an adult horse is 1.4 blocks wide, 1.4 blocks long, and 1.6 blocks high. Foals start at half the size of adults, and in the Bedrock version, they will get progressively bigger as they age. Horse’s hearts ranges from 15 to 30, with an average of 22.5. A Minecraft horse with an odd number of health points (for example, 17) does not show the last half-heart.

What do horses eat in Minecraft?

You can feed the horses with the same food you feed donkeys, and again, you need golden apples and golden carrots to make them ready for breeding. You can feed your Minecraft horses with apples, sugar, carrots, hay bales, and wheat.

Some of these foods have unique characteristics. For example;

  • Sugar will heal half a heart and speed up a baby’s growth by 30 seconds. You can make an untamed horse easier to tame by a small amount.
  • Apples will heal 1.5 hearts and speed up a baby’s growth by one minute. You can make an untamed horse easier to tame by a small amount.
  • Hay Bales will heal ten hearts and speed up a baby’s growth by three minutes, but the bad news is that they cannot be fed to untamed adult horses. As a result, you cannot make the taming process of an untamed Minecraft horse with Hay Bales.

How to tame a horse in Minecraft?

Before trying to ride a Minecraft horse and take a journey with it, you need to tame your horse and, after that, put a saddle on it (the latter will be discussed in the next section). Note that a horse’s color won’t change after you tame it. If you want to know how to tame a horse in Minecraft, take these steps;

  • First, find a horse for yourself. If you can’t find one, you can summon one of them using “/summon EntityHorse.” Note that don’t even try to train skeleton or zombie horses, as you won’t be able to ride them.
  • Next, you have to make sure your character’s hands are empty and not holding any tools or items.
  • Now, you have to mount the horse. This can be done by right-clicking or tapping on the horse (if you are playing with a desktop), pressing L2 (if playing on a PS3 or PS4), pressing LT (if you are an Xbox player), or pressing ZL (on the Wii U or Nintendo Switch).
  • Take the mounting process again and again until the horse is tamed. You can stay on the horse a little longer each time you try mounting it. You can give the horse some snacks (such as apples, carrots, wheat, and sugar) to speed up the taming process.
  • after taming, you can sit on your Minecraft horse, but you are not able to control its movements; since you need a saddle for it.

How to put a saddle on a horse in Minecraft?

As mentioned earlier, you are not able to make a saddle by yourself in Minecraft, and you have to search for it in the game (or you can trade goods for a saddle with villagers). Once you have found one, it is time to see how we should put on a Minecraft horse. This is very easy, and you need to follow these steps;

  • Since you have gotten a saddle, open your inventory and select the saddle you have achieved.
  • Now, you have to mount the horse. This can be done by right-clicking or tapping on the horse (if you are playing with a desktop), pressing L2 (if playing on a PS3 or PS4), pressing LT (if you are an Xbox player), or pressing ZL (on the Wii U or Nintendo Switch).
  • As you know, the horse also has a separate inventory for itself. In order to open it;
  1. Press “E” on your computer
  2. Click on the 3-dot button if you are on a mobile device.
  3. Press the “X” button if you use a Wii U or Nintendo Switch.
  4. Press the triangle button if you are using a PS3 or PS4 console.
  5. Press the “Y” button if you are an Xbox player.
  • Finally, drag the saddle from your inventory to the horse’s inventory.

As you can see, you have a saddled Minecraft horse now.

How to ride a horse in Minecraft?

After getting a Minecraft horse, you may like to ride it. In this section, I will teach you what we need to have and to do to ride Minecraft horses. Follow these steps;

  • First, find a horse and tame it. The taming process has been explained in the previous section.
  • Next, put your saddle from the inventory on your Minecraft horse. You can also optionally put horse Armor on Minecraft horses (not donkeys or mules). This item also needs to be found, and you cannot craft it.
  • You can now ride your horse by mounting on it. Note that you cannot ride your horse in water deeper than one block. If you do this, just use a lead to get your horse out of the water so you can ride it again. Your horse can walk over flat land and over blocks that are one block high.

You can also jump with your Minecraft horses. To do that, you need to hold down the space bar until the action bar reaches the top of the blue line. Now let it go, and at the same time, you have to move forward.

What is the fastest horse in Minecraft?

As you know, there are many different types of horses in Minecraft (besides skeleton and zombie horses), such as black pegasus and normal horses. According to statistics, the maximum speed of horses varies between 4.74 blocks per second and 14.23 blocks per second, and you compare this with Minecraft’s speed (which is about 4.3 blocks per second).

In general, white horses seem to be faster than other Minecraft horses; however, a horse’s speed can also be affected by potions, and there is no rigid relationship between a horse’s speed and appearance.

Summary

Thank you for reading this guide. Working with horses is always great, no matter if it is a real horse or just a Minecraft horse on your device. Most of the time, horses are more valuable than donkeys in Minecraft. However, they need more care and attention.
