[view] • 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 / If the pig despawned or died, the Saddle would be permanently lost.
Saddles were added in Indev on the 25th of June, 2010. They can either be found in DungeonChests or be bought in a trade with Villagers. They cannot be crafted. They can also be found as a rare drop using the fishing rod. 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 the former is riding the latter.
