Minecraft has the ability to tame a horse. This animal is a friendly mob that is used as a transport. They can rise up, eat grass, wave their tail. In order to use the horse as a transport, it has to be tamed. The site skins4minecraft represents how to do it.
To begin with, the horse should be found. Although, you can create it yourself if you play in a creative mode. If you have a normal mode, it is better to find a small horse and grow it. To do this, you need to feed the horse. The food is sugar, wheat, red and golden apples, carrots. The best and fastest way to tame a horse is to feed it with golden apples (10%) and carrots (5%). The rest of the products give only 3%.
When the horse is tamed, you can saddle it. To do this, you need to click on it. If the horse rose up, it isn’t tamed, and you need to look for another one. If you managed to sit down, the "Open" button will be available, which will open the horse's interface, where you have a possibility to put a saddle and armor on it. Unfortunately, not all horses have this feature available, so this slot may be absent. The armor can be made of gold, iron or diamonds. It provides animal protection.
Once you saddle a horse, you can ride it. The horse moves in the same way as the character. The horse also jumps on the same principle. You will see a special strip of a jump on the screen.
You can get a saddle in the chests. They can be found in forts, thrown mines, a temple in the desert or jungle, in the village of NPC in the house of the smith.
There are seven main types of horses: black, dark-bay, light-bay, wicked, lusty, gray and white. There are also various spots: no marks, with large spots of various shapes, small spots, with a dark back, with socks on the legs and a star on the face.
There is also a zombie horse, but you can’t tame it or wear an armor on it. The same is the situation with a horse-skeleton. The rare option is a donkey or silt. They can also be tamed, but don’t wear armor. However, you can wear a chest on them.
The horse's player doesn’t damage the horse and has the ability to attack the blocks with its help. A horse can be driven with a leash, while it isn’t necessary to keep it in your hands. If you right-click on the fence, then the horse will be tied to it and won’t be able to go far. If you hit the place where the horse is tied, then it will be free. Also, the cord can be broken if the horse is removed far from the place where it was tied.
When the player saddles the horse, the hunger indicator changes for horse's health and the jump indicator will be displayed. If a player wants to move from one horse to another, then he needs to click the right mouse button on the desired horse and the player will move right on it.
It's difficult to swim with a horse, as it starts to sink. At the same time, the player, getting completely into the water, jumps from the horse. It is better to overcome obstacles using the leash.
If you plan to reproduce horses, it is worth noting that the characteristics are taken from both parents, the system also calculates the time characteristics of the new horse and the arithmetic mean is calculated. For breeding, you have to feed the tamed horses with golden apples or carrots. It is also better to remove the armor and saddle from them.
If you desire to get a mule, then you need to cross the horse and donkey. At the same time, it is impossible to breed mules. Foals can’t be saddled, they must be grown at first, feeding like ordinary horses. The foal may have better health characteristics than its parent. In spite of the fact that the parents are tamed, the foal needs to be tamed too.
