Saddles are items that can be placed on rideable mobs with the exception of llamas.

Obtaining[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

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 nether 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.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 2.4% of stronghold altar chests and 12.8% of jungle temple chests in groups of 1.

Fishing[edit]

Saddles can be obtained as a "treasure" item from fishing with a base chance (without fishing rod enchantments) of 0.8%.

Trading[edit]

Leatherworker villagers will sell saddles for 8-10 emeralds as a third tier trade.‌[Legacy Console Edition only]

Master-level leatherworker villagers have 50% chance to sell a saddle for 10 emeralds as their trade.‌[Bedrock Edition only][until BE 1.12.0]

Master-level leatherworker villagers have 50% chance to sell a saddle for 6 emeralds as their trade.‌[upcoming: BE 1.12.0]. This trade will always be offered in Java Edition.

Drops[edit]

Ravagers always drop one saddle when killed. This drop rate is not increased by the looting enchantment.

Usage[edit]

A horse equipped with a saddle.

Saddles may be used to ride horses, donkeys, mules, and pigs. An equine mob equipped with saddle is rendered wearing a bridle along with the saddle.

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.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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.
