Crafting[edit]

Ingredients Crafting recipe
Leather

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. Note that golden horse armor provides more protection than iron horse armor, whereas the opposite is true for player armor.

Material Armor
Leather 3 (🛡🛡)
Iron 5 (🛡🛡🛡)
Gold 7 (🛡🛡🛡🛡)
Diamond 11 (🛡 × 5.5)

Durability[edit]

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

Enchanting[edit]

Unlike player armor, horse armor cannot be enchanted. Using an anvil in Creative Mode does allow the armor to be enchanted, but any applied enchantments have no effect.

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 using a filled cauldron with dyed leather horse armor.

Smelting usage[edit]

Piglins[edit]

Piglins are attracted to golden horse armor and run toward any golden horse armor on the ground, and inspect it for 6 to 8 seconds before putting it in their inventory.
