How to Tame Horses in Minecraft?
Horse training doesn’t require any special ingredients, but patience and good fortune are essential. Horses can be found on plains or in savannas. They are usually not afraid to run away from you. Wild horses will not resist leads attached to them.
Here are some tips to help you tame wild horses.
1 Approach the horse that you wish to tame.
2 The use button (right-click or left trigger) is pressed on the horse.
3 You can expect the horse to be a bit snarling, but don’t be afraid.
4 Continue doing this until you see hearts appear.
5 You can now saddle or breed the horse.
Horses may be tamed by eating apples, wheat, Golden Apples, and Golden Carrots. These foods can be omitted and horses don’t have to be fed them.
Horses can have a “temper” statistic, which can be zero to 99. A random number of temper numbers is assigned to wild horses when they are first ridden. You can instantly tame a wild horse if you have a number higher than 95.
You’ll lose your temper if you don’t manage it immediately. You must persevere until it reaches 100. That is when the hearts begin to appear.
You will need two horses if you want to breed horses. You can also replace one horse with a donkey. Technically, donkeys are horse variations. They can be found in herds with two to six donkeys.
Just like horses, donkeys can spawn in plains or savannas. Horses and donkeys have a 20% chance to spawn as foals.

A mule foal can be born by breeding a donkey and a horse. Mules cannot reproduce offspring and can’t breed. Artificial Selection is available in Bedrock Edition.
You can tame a foal once it is grown up. While you are welcome to feed your foals to make them grow faster, it is not necessary to do so. However, if you prefer to take care of other tasks such as mining or fishing, you can place the foal in an enclosed area and allow it to grow slowly. All foals will grow in 20 minutes without being fed.
All breeding grants you between one and seven experience points. This number can be adjusted to your liking.
Things to Do With Horses in Minecraft
You can ride a horse around the world in a saddle. The horse’s speed will vary depending on its stats. They can run at least two times as fast as a sprint, or even slightly faster. These stats can be random but repeated breeding can help you breed faster horses and better jumpers.
Saddles give you an additional slot, which is handy for keeping an item on your horse.
You can ride a horse by moving your mouse and using the movement keys to move. Horses are also able to jump over obstacles. Horses that can leap over five blocks are the best, while horses with weaker legs can only clear two blocks.
For additional protection, you can also make armor for your horse. While the armor prevents horses from being killed quickly, it does not protect them from falling or injury.
Horses can only wear armor. Skeletons, zombie horses, and donkeys can’t. The latter two can have chests that grant you an additional 15 slots. This is due to the pack animal nature of mules and donkeys.
You can travel the world faster with a horse than if you just run. Horses don’t need as much food, so you don’t need to bring as much. They can be fed if they are badly injured, but they also have healing abilities.
What is the difference between a horse, mule, and donkey in Minecraft?
Horses can wear armor, and they are usually faster. Although donkeys cannot wear armor, they can be bred with horses in order to make mules. Mules cannot be bred, but they can have chests similar to donkeys.
Each of the three animals can reach the same maximum potential stats. Therefore, mules can be just as fast as horses if they are properly bred.
