Saddles are Items that allow the player to ride Pigs, horses, mules and donkeys after they are saddled. As of 1.4.2 the pig can be controlled by a Carrot on a Stick. Saddles may also be placed on horses. Before version 1.4.2, a Saddle could not be removed from a pig, and the Saddle would be permanently lost if the pig Despawned or died.
Saddles were added in Indev on the 25th of June, 2010. They can either be found in Dungeon Chests or be bought in a trade with Villagers. They cannot be crafted. However, in Minecraft: Pocket Edition they can be fished out of water (as of v0.12.1 update).
Rarely they can be found in chests in villages in Minecraft PE.
The achievement "When Pigs Fly" can be unlocked when both the player and the pig receive fall damage while player is riding the pig.
- Zombies on chickens (Chicken Jockeys) and skeletons on Spiders (Spider Jockeys), do not need a saddle.
- Saddles can be found in village chests in Pocket Edition but have no use.
- At first you needed a Horse Saddle to mount on a horse.
