Horse armor is a special type of armor that can be given to a horse to wear. Horse armor has infinite durability and can be found in dungeons as well as Nether fortress chests, Village Blacksmith chests, Jungle Temple and Desert Temple chests, and in abandoned mineshaft minecart chests. Horse armor protects the horse from attacks. Horse armor cannot be crafted.

When on a horse, the player can press the inventory button (default "E") to access the horse's inventory. This allows the armor to be applied, removed, or replaced at the player's leisure. When the player is off the horse, the player may right click the horse with armor to equip the armor or shift + right click when the armor is in the players inventory.

Horse armor cannot be enchanted in survival mode, but you can use an anvil in creative mode. Enchanted horse armor will not have any effects on the horse.

If a horse wearing horse armor dies, it will drop the horse armor as an item. (Like saddles).

Protection[edit]

There is a gradual increase in the defense given from a horse wearing the different types of armor:

Material Armor Protection
Iron 5 (Armor.svgArmor.svgHalf Armor.svg) 20%
Gold 7 (Armor.svgArmor.svgArmor.svgHalf Armor.svg) 28%
Diamond 11 (Armor.svgArmor.svgArmor.svgArmor.svgArmor.svgHalf Armor.svg) 44%

Note that there is no leather and chain tier of armor, despite having leather and chain armor for the player.

Note that Gold horse armor gives more protection than Iron horse armor, unlike iron and gold armor for the player.
