Saddles can be found in 2.5% of stronghold altar chests, 35.3% of nether fortress chests, 16.2% of village blacksmith chests, 28.3% of dungeon chests, 23.5% of desert temple chests, 15.3% of jungle temple chests, and 13.3% of End city chests, all in groups of 1.
Saddles can be obtained as a "treasure" item from fishing with a base chance [without fishing rod enhancements] of 0.8%.
Using a saddle on a pig will equip the saddle, allowing the player to ride the pig, though controlling the pig requires usage of a carrot on a stick. The saddle can only be retrieved by killing the pig.
Tamed horses, donkeys, and mules can be ridden without them wearing 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 is considered "armor" by the game, but the value of protection to the pig is equal to null, making no additional protection to the pig.
- A saddle can still be seen if the pig is invisible.
- Punching a pig or horse while holding a saddle caused the mob to wear the saddle, and it will be taken out of your inventory, even in Creative mode.
- The "When Pigs Fly" achievement requires "Cow Tipper" even though you do not need leather to obtain saddles.
