How to make a saddle in Minecraft, might seem like something you wouldn’t normally need to do in Minecraft but if you want to ride a horse, you will need to know. Obtaining, fishing, trading, and drops for a Minecraft saddle is one of the easiest things you can do in Minecraft, but we get asked about it all the time so, I’ve put together a short post on how to make a Minecraft saddle (the easy way).
What is a Minecraft saddle
How to make a saddle in Minecraft
You can’t make one but you can Obtain, fish, trade, and get it in a drop.
Obtaining a Saddle
|Savanna house chest||1||11.30%|
|Java Edition 1.16[upcoming]|
|Saddle||Bastion remnant||Hoglin stable chest||1||9.50%|
|Bedrock Edition 1.16.0[upcoming]|
|Saddle||Bastion remnant||Treasure chest||1||26.50%|
|Hoglin stable chest||1||57.10%|
Saddles can be obtained as a “treasure” item from fishing with a base chance (without fishing rod enchantments) of 0.8%.
Master-level leatherworker villagers have a 50% chance to sell a saddle for 6 emeralds as their trade.[Bedrock Edition only]. This trade is always offered in Java Edition.
In Java Edition 1.16 and Bedrock Edition 1.16.0[upcoming], a strider may spawn being ridden by a zombified piglin, which causes it to spawn wearing a saddle. This saddle has an 8.5% chance to drop, increased by 1% per level of Looting.
Using a saddle on a pig equips the pig with the saddle, allowing the player to ride the pig. Controlling the pig requires using a carrot on a stick. Killing the pig is the only way to retrieve the saddle. Striders behave in a similar manner when equipped with a saddle, but require a warped fungus on a stick to be controlled instead.
Tamed horses, donkeys, and mules can be ridden without a saddle, but a saddle is required to control them. Once tamed, they can be equipped with a saddle by placing it in their inventory, which can be opened by pressing use while holding a saddle or sneaking. The saddle can be unequipped by removing it from the specific inventory slot.
