The horses were added to Minecraft in update 1.6. At the time they were a novelty very celebrated by the players since at that time the only way to have horses in Minecraft was by installing mods.
The horses are cool, but besides that, they are really useful to move around the world. Since they are one of the fastest means of transport in the game. In addition, they are able to gallop through the hills of the mountains, while walking with our character we should continually press the jump button to climb a hill. But to enjoy these benefits, it is necessary to tame a wild horse, and this is what we are going to teach you next.
How to tame a horse in Minecraft
Steps to tame a horse
To tame a horse in Minecraft, we first have to find a horse. It may seem obvious, but you have to keep in mind that horses only appear in the plains biome, so this is where you should look for them.
Once we have a horse if we right-click on it. We will ride but how it is not tamed, it will throw us to the ground. To tame it, we must pick apples and place them in our character’s hand. Then, with the apples in hand, we will right-click on the horse to feed it. When I no longer eat apples, with the freehand we will right-click on the horse to ride it. And then hearts will appear, symbolizing that we have tamed the horse.
Although that is not all, since when we tame a horse in Minecraft it will normally be to be able to use it as a means of transport, and we can only ride a horse and direct it if we put a saddle (saddle).
Get a horse mount
The saddles or saddles can not be manufactured in the game. It is only possible to get them in chests from around the world. These chests can be found in the dungeons, in the desert temples. In jungle temples, in the fortresses of the Nether. In abandoned mines or in the chests of the village blacksmiths of the villages.
When we have the mount in our inventory, we just have to right-click on the horse to ride on top of it. Now we will press the «E» key to access the horse’s inventory. Then we place the saddle (saddle) in the top slot of your inventory.
We can also equip our horse with iron, gold or diamond armor. Armor, like saddles, cannot be manufactured, can only be obtained in the same locations where the chests in which saddles appear are generated.
