Horses are an in-game purchasable pet, allowing the player to quickly travel around the map. Horses have 4 tiers, with each tier having its specific color and max level the horse can get to.
Getting a Horse
The player gets their first Brown Horse for free upon completing the Stable Story Quest. The player then may buy another horse from the Horse Merchant at the cost of 24 Emerald Blocks, located in the Ternaves' stables.
Using your Horse
A horse will appear in your inventory as a Saddle. Hovering over the saddle will give you information about the horse. To spawn your horse, simply select the saddle, and right-click. You can then right-click on your horse to mount it.
While riding your horse, press the Space Bar to jump. Hold the Space Bar for a second or two to perform a higher jump.
To dismount from your horse, press the Left-Shift key. You can despawn your horse using the saddle, or it will automatically despawn if you perform any action that alters your inventory (moving items, using the bank, or trading).
Horses will not be targeted by mobs, and will not take any damage from mobs if it accidentally gets hit, and are completely invincible from environmental damage except fire or lava. Horses cannot attack, and spells and weapons cannot be used while on a horse.
Getting a Better Horse
The player has two options of improving their horse: leveling and breeding. Breeding might not be successful and you might not get a higher tier horse. Instead, you might get the same horse type you bred with.
A horse can be leveled by riding it, the horse becomes faster and has an improved jump ability after each level up. However each horse tier has a limited number of levels, therefore breeding is a must if players wish to progress to higher horse levels.
|Appearance||Horse's tier||Max. level||Horse's color|
Players can breed two horses by combining them in the crafting window and then removing the resulting saddle. However, the chance of getting a higher tier horse is not 100%, so the player should think before they try to breed another horse. By combining 2 of the same Tier horse you have a higher chance of getting a higher tier horse.
Note: You lose the horses you breed, so think it through if you really do want to breed.
Note: The level of the horse does not factor into the percentages of getting a better, same, or worse horse.
|Higher tier horse||20%|
|Same tier horse||50%|
|Lower tier horse||30%|
Using these chances, there are different ways to calculate the average amount of emeralds needed to breed a specific tier.
The following list contains the values calculated by user Yuno Gasai, whose forum thread can be viewed here.
Horses can be disguised using cloaks, which are obtained from Loot Crates. There are 2 cloaks available:
|Zombie Horse Cloak|
|Skeleton Horse Cloak|
- Before 1.12 update, VIP players could buy a Black Horse at the VIP Town.
- After the 1.14 Gavel Update, a level 1 Passive "Horse" Mob can be found right after exiting the caravan in the starting area, Ragni Outskirts
- The player used to be able to purchase the "Skeleton Horse Cloak" and "Zombie Horse Cloak" in the Gold Coin Store before the change of the store for 210 Gold Coins and 135 Gold Coins respectively.
