How To Tame A Horse In Minecraft

Are you a horse fan? Do you like the feeling of the wind softly ruffling your hair while you are passionately gripping the handles? Well, then this article on how one can tame a horse in Minecraft is exactly for you! In the world of Minecraft, you are able to do practically anything – you can alter everything from your player name to the way you look (i.e. you can become bloody Batman if you wanted to! Just go to the https://skins4minecraft.com and download a skin!) as well as find a horse and start riding it.

There are, however, some steps you would need to take before you go around boasting that you now have an animal in your possession, and this is why we are here today. We are here to help you make your time in the world of Minecraft a lot easier and to provide you with the best instructions that will improve your game level tremendously.

Step 1 would be to find a horse.
If you are not sure of the exact place in the actual game, then we are happy to tell you that it’s Plains biome you should be looking for.

Once you have found yourself one, there is the possibility of immediately taming it.

This is what a Minecraft horse looks like.

Step 2 is to start the process of taming your newly found horse.

Minecraft, unfortunately, does not allow you to ride the horse the minute you lay eyes on it. You need to tame it first. The process looks something like you trying to mount it numerous times. The horse will buck you off for the first few times, but you should not give up! Mount it!

In order to do that, make sure that your hotbar has nothing selected in it. If everything is OK with that, go ahead and pick the ‘hand’ tool. Try mounting the horse.

Because Minecraft features might differ depending on which game control method you are using, here is a list of actions you need to do on your specific one:

If you are using the Java Edition (PC/Mac), Education Edition, or the Windows 10 Edition you should right click on the horse.
If you are a Pocket Edition (PE) user, you should move the pointer (arrow) over the horse and then press the Mount button.
If you have a PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on your controller.
For an Xbox 360 or an Xbox One versions, press the LT button on the controller.
If are a proud user of either a Wii U or a Nintendo Switch, you should press the ZL button on your gamepad.

As you are already aware of, the horse will straight away try to buck you off. But, once again, do not stop trying to mount it. After a couple of tries, the horse will let you sit on its back for a little bit longer.

You will know that your horse is tamed the moment an array of red hearts appear around it.


If the taming process went successfully, you will be able to sit on your horse’s back without it trying to knock you off. Yet taming the horse is not enough in order for you to control its movements – for that, you will have to learn how to put a saddle on it.

There is also another way with the help of which you can tame a horse in Minecraft – use apples!

Step 1. Find some apple trees in the game and get about 16 apples from them.
Step 2. You should find the horse you want to tame. Once you have done that, go up to it and right click on it until your inventory is empty of all those apples you have previously gathered. Your horse is now fed!
Step 3. Feeding the horse should be considered finished once those red hearts appear around it. If they did, then your horse is now completely yours!

If you want to know how to make your horse move, then you should definitely go and look up the instructions for putting a saddle on a horse in Minecraft. We wish you successful games in the future! Good luck!
