Zombie horses and skeleton horses are rare or unused horses.

Generation[edit | edit source]

The skeleton horse spawns only in thunderstorms as a part of the skeleton trap mob. The zombie horse does not spawn naturally in vanilla Minecraft and can only be spawned using the /summon command. Skeleton horses drop bones, while zombie horses drop rotten flesh. Neither type of these "undead" horses can wear horse armor or chests, and they cannot breed either.

Summoning Zombie and Skeleton Horses[edit | edit source]

Skeleton horses and zombie horses can be summoned using the following commands:

  • Zombie horse:

/summon minecraft:zombie_horse ~ ~ ~

  • Tamed zombie horse:

/summon minecraft:zombie_horse ~ ~ ~ {Tame:1}

  • Skeleton Horse:

/summon minecraft:skeleton_horse ~ ~ ~

  • Tamed Skeleton Horse:

/summon minecraft:skeleton_horse ~ ~ ~ {Tame:1}

Tamed or untamed zombie and skeleton horses cannot have a saddle placed on them, making them unrideable. However, you can ride these undead horses by summoning a zombie or skeleton horse with a saddle on its back, using commands:

  • Saddled Skeleton Horse:

/summon skeleton_horse ~ ~ ~ {Tame:1, SaddleItem: {id: saddle, Count:1}}

  • Saddled Zombie Horse:

/summon zombie_horse ~ ~ ~ {Tame:1, SaddleItem: {id: saddle, Count:1}}

You can also summon named skeleton and zombie horses with the following commands (you can also use name tags):

  • Skelly the skeleton horse:

/summon minecraft:skeleton_horse ~ ~ ~ {Tame:1,CustomName:Skelly}

  • Zom Zom the zombie horse:

/summon minecraft:zombie_horse ~ ~ ~ {Tame:1,CustomName:"Zom Zom"}
