Before getting deep into how to tame a horse on Minecraft, let me tell you some basic information about the same.

What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is not that fancy game overloaded with heavy graphics and fascinating sounds. It simply is a sandbox construction game happening in an imaginary world where you can construct creative and useful things quickly.

The game was created by Markus Persson back in 2009 for personal computers. You have to spend about $22 to get your hands on this game. The demo version does not allow us to play beyond a specific time limit.

The Minecraft game has been creating waves among game lovers right from its launch. In 2014 September, it became one of the best-selling PC games of all times. And in the same month, Microsoft bought it for a whopping $ 2.5 billion.

Though the initial version targeted PCs only, you can download the game on mobiles and consoles now. For the PC version, you only need to download a standalone game file. You can install different mods on Minecraft to experience the fuller capability of the game.

Follow the steps given below to know how to tame horses in Minecraft.

Step 1: Obviously, the very first step is to spot a horse. If your motive is to ride a horse, you should tame it. If you don’t tame and try to climb on top of it, the horse rears up causing you to fall.

Do you know where you can find a horse? Usually, horses are found in plain biomes along with chickens, rabbits, cows, pigs, etc. Check the image given below to know how a plain biome looks like. Here is how to Ride horse in Minecraft.

If you can’t spot a horse, you can summon one using cheats as well.

Step 2: After locating a horse, you have to make sure that nothing is selected on your hot bar. You must have empty hands in order to tame a horse.

Even though you can tame a horse at wherever it stays, I prefer creating a four-sided barrier and bringing the animal into it. Just like you build anything in the game, you can create this also.

Step 3: Then, bring the horse into the small structure you have created. If it can’t enter, you should break some barrier blocks to let it come in.

Step 4: Now starts the game! The process of taming horses is different on different platforms. I am going to explain each one here.

In Computers

Irrespective of which OS you use, a horse in Minecraft can be tamed by mounting on it using the action given below.

Just right-click on the horse and you will be on top of it. The animal will keep on bucking you off. So, you have to do it again and again.

At last, you will see that the horse stops bucking.

In PS3 and PS4

Our aim is the same here too- mounting on the horse.

You can do it by the L2 button on the PS2 controller.

In Xbox

Just press the LT button on the Xbox controller.

Each time you mount, the horse will let you stay on top for a longer time. At last, you will see a symbol given below around the horse.

And, you tamed a horse. But the riding is impossible still. You need to put a saddle on the horse at first for that.

A saddle lets you control the horse. So, you have to choose it from the hot bar. Again, the controls are different on each platform.
