Saddles can be found in 2.5% of stronghold altar chests, 16.2% of village weaponsmith chests, 28.3% of dungeon chests, 11.3% of savanna village house chests, 35.3% of fortress chests, 12.9% of jungle temple chests, 23.5% of desert temple chests, 13.3% of End city chests, and 17.3% of village tannery chests, all in groups of 1.
Saddles can be obtained as a "treasure" item from fishing with a base chance (without fishing rod enchantments) of 0.8%.
Master-level leatherworker villagers have 50% chance to sell a saddle for 6 emeralds as their trade.[Bedrock Edition only]. This trade is always offered in Java Edition.
Using a saddle on a pig equips the pig with the saddle, allowing the player to ride the pig. Controlling the pig requires using a carrot on a stick. Killing the pig is the only way to retrieve the saddle.
Tamed horses, donkeys, and mules can be ridden without 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 specific inventory slot.

- 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 is removed from the player's inventory, even in Creative mode.
