How to catch a horse in Minecraft

Horses are one of the most useful animals in Minecraft. They are very fast, so you can ride them to explore new areas. And they are also helpful for carrying things around, like when you’re mining for diamonds! But getting a horse in Minecraft is not always easy. You need to go through several steps before your first ride out on the plains with your horse buddy. If you’re interested in learning how to get a horse in Minecraft, keep reading!

What do you need to tame a horse in Minecraft?

To tame a horse, you’ll first need to find one. Horses spawn in plains biomes and can be found anywhere from the surface down to level 10. When you’ve found one, try sneaking up on it and feeding it an apple. If this doesn’t work, try feeding it a golden apple or carrot (a rarer type of food that’s not easily obtained in Creative Mode).

Dress your horse with some armor when they’re tamed so they don’t take damage while you ride them around!

How long does it take to tame a horse Minecraft?

Taming a horse in Minecraft is a fairly straightforward process that takes between 4-5 minutes. During this time, the horse will need to be fed with food in order to tame it successfully.

Once you have found your target animal and are ready to tame it, make sure that you have some carrots or golden apples in your inventory. It doesn’t matter if these items were obtained through farming (which requires seeds), looting chests or other players’ farms, finding them in caves or dungeons, or trading with villagers—they can all be used for taming purposes.

When you’ve got those ready and accessible on your hotbars, approach the horse slowly until both of you are within an arm’s length of each other (about 2 blocks). At this point, tap on its head repeatedly until it starts eating out of your hand—this is when it’s tamed!

How do I get my horse to stay in one place?

You can get your horse to stay in one place by building a fence.

To make sure that the horse is following you, you should lead it with a lead.

You can also tie a lead to your horse if you want it to follow you instead of walking on its own.

Do tamed horses follow you in Minecraft?

Once you’ve tamed a horse, it won’t follow you into caves or other underground areas. However, they will still follow you if you’re riding them and they belong to a mob that can be ridden. You’ll have to dismount the horse and lead it in order for it to go further than one block away from your character while underground.

If a horse is following an animal that can’t be ridden (such as an ocelot), then the ocelot will continue following the player even after being tamed with apples or wheat.


There you have it! Now you know how to catch a horse in Minecraft. It may seem complicated at first, but hopefully after following these steps, you can get your hands on one of these beautiful animals for yourself. Just remember: patience is key!
