Horses are a passive mob added in Update 1.6. They spawn in grassy biomes and can be ridden with a Saddle, making Pigs mostly obsolete for riding purposes. There are twelve patterns for Horses, along with Donkeys, Mules, and the undead horses. When you mount a horse, your hunger bar vanishes, and is replaced by the health of your horse. Horses can have varying degrees of health.
Horses can be tamed by getting on them repeatedly with bare hands when they buck you off until they give heart particles. Then they can be ridden and equipped with saddles and armor.
Both Horses and Donkeys can be tamed with either Golden Apples or Golden Carrots. They can be cross-bred to make Mules.
Available Items to equip
