Trading[edit | edit source]
Usage[edit | edit source]
Using a saddle on a pig will equip the saddle, allowing the player to ride the pig, though controlling the pig requires usage of a carrot on a stick. The saddle can only be retrieved by killing the pig.
Tamed horses, donkeys, and mules can be ridden without them wearing a saddle, but a saddle is required to control them. Once tamed, they can be equipped with a saddle by placing it in their inventory which can be opened by pressing use while holding a saddle or sneaking. The saddle can be unequipped by removing it from the steed's inventory.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- A saddle is considered "armor" by the game, but the value of protection to the pig is equal to null, making no additional protection to the pig. A saddle can still be seen if the pig is invisible.
- Punching a pig or horse while holding a saddle causes the mob to wear the saddle, and it will be taken out of your inventory, even in creative mode.
- Saddles are useless in PE since you can't ride animals with it
