Well Hello! Today I'm going to be talking about why I think that Mojang should have kept horse saddles and a few reasons how it would make the hole horse business MUCH easier.

For Starters in the snapshot of 1.6 the Horse saddle was created shown above in the picture. Well Mojang decided to scrap that hole idea which made the horse's even harder to ride.

Also after taming the horse you have to go find a dungeon now because you cant craft a saddle which has been requested by many players and now it comes into a even bigger effect now.

Well those are some main reasons that have come to my mind that make the horse update a lot more pain full when trying to ride the horses,donkeys,and mules!

So If you liked this blog or agree feel free to Diamond and Favorite!

Thanks

I have to point out several things....1.The point of a game is not to get everything almost imedietly. It's suppost to have challenges. 2. Horses are pretty OP, they run super fast and can be abused in many situations, so that's another reason why they made it a challenge to get saddles. 3. How did this get on pop reel?

That's like complaining that a rock wall is too hard and they should've added a ladder.

Saddles aren't meant to be obtainable easily at the start, thumbs down for this blog, it sucks.

The reason saddles are not able to be crafted is for two reasons. The first being that horses are meant to be more of an end game thing. They are a rarer mob only spawning in one biome much like mooshrooms. So being able to obtain one of these horses should not be something made to be able to do on the first few minecraft days and instead more of a goal.

Secondly currently saddles are the only item left in dungeons that can not be obtained any other way (to my knowledge) in survival mode. So with saddles being able to be crafted it would essentially make dungeons completely pointless to even search for above making a mob grinder from it.

Horses are by no means rare. They are one of the easiest mobs to find. I have played several survival worlds, and in each one I have found several groups of horses.

well I may have been mistaken about their rarity I should have looked more into their spawn rate information I suppose.

You can also get them from the nether and villager trading. Without a huge amount of effort you can trade for 100+ saddles per hour (I'm sure 300-400 ph/hr would also be easy).

Minecraft is pathetically easy as it is, if you want to not work for anything then play in creative.

You can afk-farm leather and iron, just spawn them in if you're really not willing to work for anything but still want to pretend you're playing ssp/smp.

If they had to get rid of horse saddles, the least they could have done was made saddles craftable.

I don't think they should readd the saddle crafting because that would be to OP, But they should at least readd horse armor crafting because it is way to hard to get the horse armor.

The reason why they made horse saddles uncraftable because horses weren't made to ride the first day in a world, it's something you must work for. Saddles are only found in dungeons and horses are very rare and only can be found in a plain biome. However you could tame it and tie it to a fence post till you find a saddle.

Next time you make a blog that has to due with discussing a topic, I suggest you add more than 5 sentences. I'm not trying to be a hater here, but next time definitely write more. You'll attract that attention of more well known audiences and you will get more diamonds.

My mod will add every recipe mojang deleted in 1.6, plus more horse armor (wood, stone, emerald, obsidian, ruby, sapphire, steel, and titanium- you'd get it if you download my mod :P ) and more :)

I think this decision is sensed. Having saddles as a very valuable item makes horses less OP, more valuable, and all items around them more valuable. Also in multiplayer keeps their use limited, just think what would happen, with such a simple crafting recipe almost everyone could get a horse and run around! This makes horses a goal to reach, not something else too easy as making a wheat farm.

The reason they kept them in the dungeons only was due to they wanted to keep "dungeon specific items" because that is the only item you find in chests that you can't get anywhere else

I don't think their should be a horse saddle, but I think u should be able to craft a regular saddle and use that

You are right, They need a Crafting Recipe for the Saddle. You have to tame a horse go to a dungeon and just find one. Its so annoying, It would be nice if they added the Horse Saddles again!

Well, What if you just started out, and found a awesome horse you want. But you dont have a saddle or stuff to make a lead, But lets say they added the Horse saddles again.
I had all the stuff to craft one, I make one And the horse is good to go.

if you just start out you wouldn't have the leather or iron, therefore you should read over stuff before you comment (I'm not talking about grammer mistakes and using words wrong)

Well, it keeps a use for a pig being the starter animal, if they were too easy to get then no one would use pigs.

He is speaking on behalf of those who don't want the horse to replace the pig entirely. Dem pig'goos mean a lot to some players- I am guessing Colapie was saying how since the horse is hard to mount and ride at first the pig is still another option!

However you need a carrot and stick to ride the pig.

Depending how long you have been playing in a game, those items are pretty easy to come across.
