A saddle allows you to ride a number of different animals in the game including a horse, a donkey, a mule, and even a pig if you are feeling creative. Riding animals with a saddle makes traveling across the game a lot easier and faster. So if you are looking to make a saddle in Minecraft, this is the guide for you.

Can You Make A Saddle In Minecraft?

You’d be surprised to know that you cannot make a saddle in Minecraft. That’s right, a game that literally allows you to make almost anything and even make portals to another universe doesn’t allow you to make a saddle. It was a shock to us to because we wanted to craft a saddle Minecraft as well because that would be so much easier than the other methods. Thankfully, you can get a saddle in the game you just need to apply some effort to it. Don’t get us wrong, it is not a very long or hard process to get a saddle in Minecraft, it is just odd that you cannot make a saddle in Minecraft.

How to Find a Saddle in Minecraft

There are several ways that you can get a saddle in Minecraft. All of them are a bit easy and you can do them whenever you want however some of them are better than the others. Here we will be explaining exactly how you can get a saddle in Minecraft with these easy to follow methods.


One of the easiest and common ways to obtain a saddle in Minecraft is to simply open chests. All of the tests have a certain chance to contain a saddle, this also means that there is no particular chest that can net you a saddle hundred percent of the time. So you’ll have to open a couple of them before you can obtain a saddle, or if you are lucky, you can get it in the first one you open.

When it comes to finding chests you can easily find one at the Village Weaponsmith, Dungeon, Savana Village, Stronghold Alter, Jungle Temp, Nether Fortress, Desert Temple, Village Tannery or End City. This is perhaps the easiest way you can obtain a saddle in Minecraft. All you need to do is simply go and open the chests located at the locations we specified. However, we found that the Nether Fortress Chest and the Dungeon Chest have a much higher chance of spawning a saddle in them. We highly recommend that you check those both out before moving on to other chests.


The leatherworking villagers can sell a saddle to you for 8 to 10 emeralds, it is also a 3rd tier trading option. However, if you can spot a master level leatherworker almost always have one saddle available and it will only cost you 6 emeralds which is a great deal compared to the other options.


If you love fishing in Minecraft, then this is one of the best methods to enjoy fishing as well as get a saddle for your labor. Fishing in Minecraft can net you a saddle as a treasure. But a fair warning though, getting a saddle as treasure through fishing is really hard. There is a very low chance that you will get what you want with this method. Of course, you can also enchant your fishing rod with the Luck of the Sea enchantment which will increase the odds of getting a saddle. However, this is not an ideal way to get a saddle in Minecraft as it will take a lot of time and effort. This method is great if you are already planning on doing a lot of fishing in the game, as there is a chance you will get a saddle while doing what you already wanted to do.

Killing a Ravager

A Ravager is a very formidable and hostile monster that can attack you on sight. You also need to start a raid to fight a Ravager in Minecraft. There are for you to achieve this, you will need the Bad Omen Status Effect. And for that to happen you need to kill an Illager Captain found in the Pillager Outposts or Illager Patrols.

Once you have the Bad Omen states effect active, you can enter the village boundaries. That will start a raid. You will need to beat three waves of enemies before the Ravager comes to the fight. It may seem like a lot of effort but this is one of the most effective ways of getting a saddle in Minecraft. If you’re able to defeat the Ravager, there is a 100% chance you will get the saddle. So if all methods are taking too long or require a lot of effort from you, you can go this route and update saddle.

Animals You Can Ride

Now that you have a saddle, you can easily use it to ride a number of different animals in the game. You can ride a horse, a mule or a donkey in the game with the saddle normally. You just need to place a saddle on them and ride them around. But if you want to ride the pig, you’ll need to craft a carrot on a stick. Simply place the saddle on the pig, take out the carrot on a stick and pointed in the direction you want the pig to go.


These were some of the methods of obtaining a saddle in Minecraft. We really enjoy writing the animals and the huge game world and it is one of the best ways to get around quickly. We were a bit disappointed that you cannot actually make a saddle in Minecraft but using one of these methods is just as easier.
