REQUIREMENTS TO BREED A HORSE

We’ll show you each step to prepare for horse breeding on your Minecraft server.

WHERE TO FIND MINECRAFT HORSES

The noble horse is a wondrous creature in Minecraft that offers players the ability to ride fast and furious across the world of Minecraft, and so finding a horse is the first important step to getting your own Minecraft horse. You can find Minecraft horses randomly spawned within various biomes including Plains, Sunflower Plains, Savanna, Savanna Plateau, Windswept Savanna, and inside of Villages roaming about.

HOW TO TAME MINECRAFT HORSES

The taming of a horse is done by mounting the horse repeatedly by left-clicking your mouse. Based on the temper of the creature, when a player first mounts the creature it will be assigned a random temper threshold between 0-99. You will successfully tame a horse once its temper exceeds the threshold and if bucked off, the temper will increase by 5 until that threshold is surpassed. Additionally, you can feed the horse to increase its temper. Hearts will appear above the horse once it is tamed.

CAPTURING HORSES IN MINECRAFT

When it comes to capturing horses, as well as donkeys, there are two methods you can take to capture them! You can tame a horse and place a saddle on it and then simply ride the horse back to your home. Alternatively, you can create a lead using four strings and a slime ball and then walk the horse back to your farm! Once at your homestead, you’ve captured the horse!

HOW TO BREED HORSES IN MINECRAFT

To breed horses in Minecraft, you will first need golden apples or golden carrots to proceed. To create golden apples and golden carrots, you can see the crafting recipes here:

Feed either of these foods to horses, as well as donkeys, to activate love mode in the creatures. This will result in them breeding, which will produce a horse foal. The foal will often have similar colors as its parents and after about 20 minutes, will grow up into an adult horse with stats similar to that of its parents. You can speed up the growth process by feeding the horse apples, sugar, wheat, or hay.

BREEDING FOR A MULE IN MINECRAFT

Mules are the offspring of a combination of a horse and a donkey breeding together in Minecraft. To accomplish this, place a horse and a donkey inside of a fence and then feed them both either golden apples or golden carrots to activate love mode. The horse and donkey will breed, creating the hybrid known as the mule. Starting as a mule foal, after about 20 minutes it will grow into a full mule inheriting similar stats to that of its parents. You can feed the mule foal to increase the speed at which it grows to an adult.
