Breeding horses in Minecraft is a bit tricky but not that hard to pull off once you get the hang of it. This guide is going to explain how to breed horses in Minecraft and will allow you to ride around the game in style in no time at all.

Breed Horses in Minecraft

Here are the simple steps you need to follow when breeding horses in Minecraft.

Things You Will Need

The first thing you need in your inventory before you go out to find horses are carrots and apples. These are very necessary if you want wild horses to follow you to your home base. All you need to do is simply hold the carrot or apple in your hand and wild horses will start following you around. You will also need golden apples or carrots for the actual breeding later in the guide, so make sure you have them around as well.

Find the Horses

In order to breed the horse of your dreams, you will need to start at the base level; finding wild horses. You need two horses to breed and both of them need to be tamed. A common mistake people make is trying to breed two wild horses that will not work.

You can easily find horses in Plains and Savannah biomes. They usually roam around in herds of 2 to 6 horses so you won’t have to search far for 2 horses at all.

Statistics and Appearance

A few things you need to consider before breeding a horse in Minecraft, its stats and appearance. If you are after a specific color or pattern, you need to find horses that match it in the wild. There are 7 total colors and 5 different patterns in the game, so a total of 35 combinations are available to choose from.

Another thing you’d want to consider is statistics like speed, health, and jump height. It may seem a lot but if you want the perfect riding companion, this will pay in the long run. You can ride the horses for a little while and check out the stats before you even breed them.

Taking your time in selecting the best horses you want is the best way to ensure you will have a great companion in the long run. The only downside is that you will need to tame and ride a couple of horses before you can check their stats. This can take a while but the effort is worth it in the end.

Breed the Horses


First, tame both the horses. Both of them need to be tamed before the breeding process can start.


Make a fence around the horses so they won’t be able to run away from each other.

Food Items

Feed golden apples, golden carrots, or enchanted golden apples to both the horses.


After you feed them the food, little red hearts will start appearing on their heads. They will turn towards each other and after a while, a cute baby horse will appear.


This was the guide on how to breed horses in Minecraft. We hope the whole process is explained and now you can breed the perfect horse for your needs!
