undead saddled horses[edit | edit source]
I've noticed something going on behind the scenes here. if you look at the history, you can see that people, including me, have constantly edited the part where it says that undead horses can/cannot be saddled.
so let me make this clear: if you get yourselfes a saddle, use commands to summon a undead, tame horse, ride it, press E, you can give it a saddle. note that ANY horse, undead, donkey, or normal, can NOT be saddled without being tamed.
using commands, you can get a untamed saddled horse.
when tamed, ANY horse can be saddled, even if taming them requires commands –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) at 11:50, 8 November 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
Tamed horses despawning[edit | edit source]
I have the PS4 version of the game and I found a horse and brought it back to my house, I used a lead to secure it to a post and then went about working on the area surrounding my house. But after a while, the horse vanished from my house. I was under the impression that a tamed horse wouldn't despawn especially considering I secured to a fence post and have given it a saddle. Did I do something wrong, or is the PS4 version buggy when it comes to horses? 126.96.36.199 21:01, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
How do splash potions of leaping affect the horse's jump height?[edit | edit source]
I noticed that splash potions of leaping affect weaker jumpers more than stronger ones. For example the horse with the jump strength 1.0 can jump 5.91m without potion effects and with leaping II about 8.2m, which is an increase of about 39%. I tested another horse, that can jump about 2.0m without effects and with leaping II about 3.5m, which is an increase of 75%. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) at 0:15, 28 December 2014 (UTC).

Chests[edit | edit source]
Is it possible to equip a horse (not a donkey or mule) with a chest? I play pocket edition, so I can't test it out.184.108.40.206 22:52, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
- Only donkeys and mules can be given chests, see the sections Usage and Equipment. –KnightMiner t/c 03:46, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Space needed for horses?[edit | edit source]
Can't find this on the wiki page, and it probably should be there.
How much space (length, width, height) do horses take up, and how much space is needed for riding? Is it possible to ride in a 1-wide corridor? What about in a 2-high space? 2.5 high? 3 high?--Katerine459 (talk) 21:42, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
- Adults are 1.4 blocks wide and long, and 1.6 blocks high. You can safely ride through a space as short as 2.75 blocks; any shorter and your head will be in a block, causing suffocation damage if it isn’t transparent. In creative mode (or if you’re reckless), the horse can fit through a 1.75 block space. It will go into a 1.625 block space, but takes suffocation damage if the block above isn’t transparent. They are unable to enter a 1.5 block high space.
- Foals start at half the size of adults and get progressively bigger as they age. — Orthotopetalk 11:01, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
- The article really needs to mention how riding into a cave or enclosing space can kill you with suffocation damage, sometimes with no way to back out. I lost 42 levels of progress in survival mode because of this glitch. After working so hard to be careful for so long and reading about things before they could kill me, it was a big letdown that I could die so easily and quickly just exploring on the back of a donkey and there was no mention of it in the wiki. The page mentions suffocation damage, but needs to explain how easy it is to die quickly. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) at 8:20, 14 August 2015 (UTC).
