i played minecraft on computer years ago but then switched to xbox so how do i get off

P.S. (Hit it with a diamond sword)

I found if i hit the horse hearts come out of it as well. i cant get on it though.

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.

Sometimes to ride some horses u need a hay bale

guys you have to use your hand empty your hot bar then click ride it will start moving like crazy then an button called open appears get a saddle and armour and click the button put the saddle and armour on and you can control 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!
