3 Ways to Tame a Horse in Minecraft

If you are a Minecraft player, especially an avid one, taming and riding horses is a valuable skill worth acquiring. Not only does it allow you to traverse the vast landscape more efficiently, but it also adds an element of fun and excitement.

Just remember, education is the doorway to happiness. To receive a good education, you will need good teachers. Also, you will need to be up on the latest tech.

In this article, we will explore three methods to tame a horse in Minecraft:

1. Manual Taming:

This is the most straightforward approach to taming a horse in Minecraft. Simply follow these steps:

   a. Locate a wild horse: Wild horses can be found roaming in plains and savanna biomes.

   b. Empty your hand: Make sure you have nothing equipped in your selected item slot.

   c. Right-click (or left trigger/tap) on the horse: This action will prompt you to mount the horse.

   d. Hold on tight: The horse will buck and attempt to throw you off several times before it is tamed. You’ll be tossed off in the process: just repeat mounting until successful.

   e. When hearts appear around the horse, it means you’ve successfully tamed it.

2. Feeding Apples:

Feeding apples is another method that can make taming easier:

   a. Acquire apples: Apples can be found in various ways – looting chests, breaking leaves from trees, or trading with villagers.

   b. Locate a wild horse.

   c. Equip apples in your hotbar and approach the horse.

   d. Feed the apples by right-clicking (or left trigger/tapping) on the horse – repeating as needed until hearts appear.

   e. Mount the tamed horse with nothing equipped in your hand.

3. Using Golden Apples/Carrots:

As an alternative approach, using golden apples or golden carrots can speed up the taming process:

   a. Craft golden apples or golden carrots: Golden apples require 8 gold ingots and 1 apple, whereas golden carrots need 8 gold nuggets and 1 carrot.

   b. Locate a wild horse.

   c. Approach the horse with golden apples/carrots equipped in your hotbar.

   d. Feed the golden treats to the horse as previously described.

   e. Once hearts appear, proceed to mounting with an empty hand.

Riding and exploring the Minecraft world atop a trusty steed can greatly improve your in-game experience, making it worth knowing how to tame horses effectively. Whether you use the manual approach or boost your chances by feeding apples, learning how to tame a horse is essential for all dedicated Minecrafters. Happy riding!
