As of Minecraft version 1.6, Horses have become a feature in Minecraft.  This blog will take you over all of the features of horses, including how to tame them, breed them and much more.

You can only find Horses in eithe Plains  or Savanah  biomes, making them somewhat rarer than other passive mobs in the game.  When you encounter a Horse, it may either be in the form of a Horse like so:
undefined

Or they may be in the form of a donkey, like this:
undefined




The way that you tame the two of them is the same, and it is only their uses that vary.





To start of, you need to Right Click the Horse or Donkey with an Empty Hand.  This alows you to mount the Horse and begin the taming process.
undefined




The Horse may try to throw you off a few times, and will display smoke particles when doing so, after time the Horse will accept you more and will eventually display Heart particles to show that he is tamed.

undefined




Once tamed, you can press E to open up the horses inventory.

undefined

There are two slots, one is for a saddle and the other is for horse armour.  You can place the items into the slots to put them onto the horse.


With Donkeys tere is only one slot on the inventory for a saddle as you cannot use Horse Armour on a Donkey.

undefined



once items are placed into the slots, they show on the Horse and Donkey.

undefined





You can right click a chest onto a Donkey in order to allow it to hold items, showing in its inventory like so.



undefined







And thats it, that is how you tame a Horse to make it yours.



Breeding
Breeding your Horses
In order to activate love mode on a horse, you can use either a Golden Carrot or a Golden Apple, and this will allow them to breed like any other mob, the child will inherit some of the properties of its parents, such as colour, speed and jump height.


You can also breed Horses and Donkeys together to make mules, mules cannot breed, but can be faster than Donkeys and can still transport Items.

First people DEMAND horses.... now they COMPLAIN? What kind of stupidity is this....
Edit Reply Delete
They got alot of demands from the players to add horses, but now that the horses look realistic their saying "its not minecraft like"
Just because minecraft is mainly made of blocks doesnt mean everything in it has to

he didn't steel it from Dr zhark, they are working on the horses together
Edit Reply Delete
But what about enderchest, and carrots/potatoes, and TNT minecarts, the new idea of vertical redstone, Beacons, villager trading, Those were all stolen Ideas, and why make the horses look EXACTLY the same.... Jeb's lazy
Edit Reply Delete
Their not stolen, it is a community thing. Jeb decided that even though they were community made stuff, that they should be added to minecraft. When someone gives you a good idea, do you go and say: No, it would be lazy of me to do your suggestion/idea, so ill just keep thinking for awhile of what to do...

Going out on a limb and assuming they didn't also have the ideas, or maybe that the developers of those mods didn't ask for it to become a part of vanilla is a bit much ignorant, don't ya think, guys? Having created a mod that becomes a part of vanilla must also be a great honor to those developers. I'd stop bashing Mojang, they do work hard, and there is only so much you can add to the game that isn't already done in a mod somewhere.
Edit Reply Delete
Well, I mean it must be a great honor, but there's been SOOOOO much stuff that mojang has copied...

That's because there has been SOOO much stuff that the community has made. Why don't you think of a few unique ideas that haven't been done before in mods? I guarantee you can't come up with three (good ones).
Edit Reply Delete
You know what? If you have a problem THEN STOP PLAYING MINECRAFT!!! Then no more bitching from you.
Edit Reply Delete
I'm not the one bitching, all of you guys are.... This has kinda been going for quite some time and every comment is the same, can we all just be quiet? I get it, none of you guys are happy with my thought on Jeb.

That wouldn't make minecraft the same......... ever.
If that was to work it should be a mod, or server plugin.
