Zombie horses and skeleton horses are rare or unused horses. 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. Both kinds of these "undead" horses cannot wear horse armor or chests, and are not able to breed.

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}

Note: You can ride the skeleton horse using a saddle after you have killed the skeleton trap. These horses cannot be tamed unless you use the Tame:1 part of the command and therefore cannot be ridden with saddles without summoning a tamed one. However, skeleton horses that are part of the skeleton trap mob can be tamed by mounting the horse and then placing a saddle in its inventory.

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"}
