Minecraft allows players to explore a huge world filled with unique biomes, deadly enemies, and cute enemies that can become your companions.
Most players will venture out into the vast world, finding new places to establish their bases while collecting new items and materials. Crossing on foot can be tedious, especially on long journeys in dangerous environments.
Minecraft offers endless possibilities when it comes to creativity and imagination because you can do almost anything you can think of in the game. So if you happen to come across horses and now if you want to ride one, we’ve got you covered as we’ve detailed how you can do it in this article.
How to tame and ride a horse in Minecraft?
To ride a horse, you must first tame it. These are the steps to tame and ride a horse in Minecraft:
- Approach a horse slowly and without holding anything in your hand, right click on the horse to mount it. This action will begin to tame the horse.
- When the horse hits you, right click the horse again to mount it. Repeat this process until the horse is no longer pushing you and red hearts are formed. The red hearts that appear indicate a successful dressage process for the horse and the player.
- Once tamed, right click on the horse to remount it. To open the horse menu, click on the letter E on your keyboard. Click and drag the saddle to the empty saddle slot in the menu. This will equip the horse with a saddle, allowing you to control the movement of the horse.
- You can then equip the horse with a saddle and armor in each of the empty slots in the menu.
Put on a saddle
You can only sit on a tame horse but not ride it. With a saddle, you can control its movements and ride anywhere. You cannot craft a saddle in Minecraft. Saddles can be obtained from chests in the Nether Fortress, Desert Temples, Dungeons, etc.
