How to breed horses in minecraft ?

All Minecraft animals come with a viable use to make your game experience easier or make a resource easier to find. One useful animal you'll want to learn to breed is the horse. Horses are a fantastic form of transportation if you are looking to travel long distances. You will need a saddle to ride them in, but before you worry about that, you need to tame and breed them.

Horse locations

There are two viable biomes in which you can find a Minecraft horse : Plaines et savanes.

Taming horses

To tame a horse, you will have to repeatedly try to mount a full-grown horse by approaching it and interacting with it with an empty hand. When you mount the creature, it will turn you away. Each time you detach, you increase the horse's temperament and get closer to taming it.

You will not be able to determine the horse's temperament level, but you must continually ride the horse to gain its trust. You will notice that you can stay on the horse longer each time it takes you off. You will know you have passed the horse's mood threshold when you see hearts over its heart.

How to raise a horse

Once you have properly tamed a pair of horses and carolled them near you, you are ready to start breeding them. You can use one of two special items to breed them :

  • Golden apples
  • Golden carrots

You can find these items inside chests in fortress altars, underwater ruins, dungeons, igloos, desert temples, mine shafts and woodland mansions. However, you can also make them by placing a single apple or carrot in your crafting table with nine gold bars.

You'll find that mining the gold bars and harvesting the apples or carrots can be much easier than looting the dangerous places in your world.

When you have your two golden apples or carrots, give them to the respective horses and they will go into love mode. The two will mate and produce a foal. The foal needs time to grow into a full-grown adult, and during this time he is wild, so make sure he is in a safe place. When he reaches adulthood, you will have to tame him as you tamed your first horse.

To feed your horse you should give it either sugar, apple, wheat, golden apples and golden carrots. This will increase your chances of taming them by 5-10%.
