Horses are very much useful in Minecraft. They can be used to explore the world. To breed horses in Minecraft, first, you need to find two horses. In the game, the gender of the horses is not defined. Therefore, you can find any two horses. Horses are usually found in Plains Biome. Finding horses may be a difficult task. If you could not find a horse, you can summon them by cheat or use a spawn egg.
Even if you found two horses, if they are wild, you cannot breed them. So, first, you need to tame them. One thing interesting about horses is that even if they are in wild condition, they would not attack you. So to tame them you need to mount them by right-clicking on them. you will have to keep mounting them until they are tamed. Each time you mount them, the horses will increase their temper by 5 points. After it goes beyond the threshold, they are tamed.
Things required to breed horses in Minecraft
Even though you found two horses to tame, you need to keep them in one place to mate them. You will need to build a fence to keep them in one place. Otherwise, they will run away.
Another thing that you can do to speed up the process is by feeding the horses. You can feed them with sugar, wheat or apples, to increase horses temper by 3 points. On the other hand, to breed horses in Minecraft, you need to feed both horses with Golden Apple, Enchanted Golden Apple, or Golden Carrot. These will activate the Love Mode of both the horses. Then they will mate and make a new baby horse.
This process can be done to make a baby horse, a baby donkey, and a baby mule. If you mate two horses then you can get another horse. If you mate two donkeys you can make another Donkey. if you mate a horse and a donkey, then you will get a Mule. But mating two mules will do nothing.
Feeding the horses might a little bit different from the Minecraft version you use. You must feed one golden apple to each of the horses, one at a time. The golden apples should be selected in your hot bar.
