A carrot on a stick is an item that can be used to control saddled pigs.
The carrot must be placed at a diagonal below the fishing rod. It is possible to craft a carrot on a stick without a crafting table.

Riding a pig
To use a carrot on a stick, the player must first saddle a pig. The pig will then move in the direction that the carrot on a stick points to. Also, if the player holds a carrot on a stick, all pigs will follow the player.
To make the pig run faster, the player can press use while holding the carrot on a stick. This is called "boosting." Each boost costs 7 durability. If the carrot on a stick has less than 7 durability, the boost cannot be used. After a boost is used, the player may switch to another item while retaining the boost. If the carrot on a stick's durability is depleted, it turns back into a fishing rod.
The speed of a mounted pig is at 4.00 m/s, boosting it doubles the speed to 8.00 m/s. These speeds are unaffected by potions of Swiftness. The boost takes 5 seconds to warm up and lasts 40 seconds. Therefore, it is possible to travel up to 340 blocks on a single boost without holding the carrot on a stick.
A carrot on a stick can receive the following enchantments, but only through an anvil:
