Finally, in a dark red corridor with the shrieks of ghasts ringing in your ears, you see a chest. You walk up to it. Another wither skeleton attacks, and you fight it off. You open the chest, and see what's inside. Some diamonds – meh, you've got loads of those. A flint and steel – might be useful to re-light a portal. A dusty saddle? You've already ridden a pig off a cliff. But then your eyes light up – at the very bottom of the chest, you find the prize you've been seeking. It's our item of the week – horse armor.

Duncan Geere[1]

Horse armor[note 1] is a special type of armor that can be given to a horse to wear. Only normal horses can wear armor; donkey, mule and undead variants such as skeleton horses and zombie horses cannot be equipped with armor.

Trading[edit]

Expert-level leatherworker villagers sell leather horse armor for 6 emeralds as part of their trade.

Usage[edit]

Protection[edit]

Horse armor can be equipped to horses either by manually placing it in its respective slot (), or by right-clicking the horse with it.

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

Material Armor
Leather 3 ()
Iron 5 ()
Gold 7 ()
Diamond 11 ()

Durability[edit]

Unlike player's armor, horse armor does not have durability. This means a single horse armor can be used indefinitely.

Dyeing[edit]

Leather horse armor can be dyed 12,326,391 different colors (using lone dyes or dye combinations) and put onto a horse to display that color. These changes can be reverted by right clicking on a filled cauldron with dyed leather horse armor.
