First you have to feed a couple of apples to the horse and right click it.It may kick you off but keep trying and soon you will tame it.

Yes, most of you are right. It does not work. I fed the horse about 30 apples, and it started rearing at me. I kept trying, but it did not work. And also, I think that you can only get sugarcubes in a mod.

I am playing in 1.9, but here is a youtube video for how to tame a horse in 1.8:

Thanks, and have fun taming your horse!

Use golden apples you will get it in the first try.

This looks much easier than trying to tame and ride a horse in real life.

KarenL54 (author)seamster2015-12-04

potentially less painful as well!
