how to make horse armor in minecraft1

This article will explain three easy ways to learn how to make armor for a horse in Minecraft, but first, you must have some things before starting.

Method 1:


Amount of iron ingots:  20+

Amount of gold nuggets:  4+

Step 1:

Find a cow while holding a gold nugget, and while holding the gold nugget, click on the cow. This will drop leather from the cow, so put it in your inventory. Remember, if you kill the cow with a sword instead of punching it, it will not drop any items.

Step 2:

Have 30 or more blocks of free space in your inventory, and then open up your inventory by pressing E on the keyboard and dragging the leather armor onto the 3×3 crafting grid.

Step 3:

You should now see a horse armor piece in the bottom right-hand corner of the crafting grid. Hover over it with your mouse pointer and left-click on it. This will craft one horse armor piece.

Step 4:

You can now keep repeating steps 2-4 to make more horse armor pieces if you want to.

Tip: You can also use an iron ingot instead of a gold ingot if you want.

Method 2:

Making horse armor is not easy in Minecraft, but following the second method can be an easy task.

1. Tools

It would help if you had a forge and all the correct tools for making steel-smelting pots. This includes charcoal, iron ore (Nether quartz), coal, etc.

Note: if you made them out of wood like in vanilla Minecraft, they would burn away during the process (for whatever reason). If you’re playing with mudpacks like Feed The Beast or Tekkit or whatever has alternate ways of collecting things, you can probably skip this step unless you want to make the toolset yourself.

This is what you need to make horse armor in Minecraft0

2. Hunting

Now go hunting for a horse. It doesn’t matter what color it is. Once you have one, tame it with Wheat Seeds by right-clicking on it with the seeds in your hand.

3. Equip the horse

Equip the horse with a saddle by right-clicking on it while holding the saddle in your hand. Now, if you’re feeling lucky, you can try to make horse armor yourself.

4. Ingredients

To make horse armor yourself, you’re going to need some iron ingots and leather strips. The amount that you’ll need depends on how much armor you want to make.

5. Iron hoe

First, create a crafting table and then right-click on it with an iron ingot in your hand. This will give you an “iron hoe.”

6. Making of horse armor

Now, to make the horse armor itself, you’re going to need to set up a crafting grid like so:

  • Horse armor 1
  • Iron hoe 4
  • Leather strip

You can use any leather for this, and It just happened to have some cow leather lying around. So, as you can see, for every piece of armor you want to make (head, chest, legs), you’ll need one iron hoe and four leather strips.

That’s how you can make horse armor in Minecraft.

Method 3:

Horse armor is an essential item for any player who wants to protect their horses from being killed in combat. In this article, we’ll show you the third method to make horse armor in Minecraft.

  1. The first step is to gather the materials that you’ll need to make the armor. You’ll need six iron ingots and four pieces of leather.
  2. Once you have the materials, start by making a crafting table. To do this, stand in front of a workbench and hold down the left mouse button. Then, drag the crafting table over to your hot bar and select it.
  3. Next, use the crafting table to create the iron ingots that you’ll need to make your horse armor.
  4. Click on the last icon in the hot bar, it looks like a chest with an arrow pointing up out of it. It will open the inventory menu, where you can place things you want to create.
  5. Drag an iron ingot into this window and then close the window by clicking on the arrow icon again. This should create another copy of your selected item in your inventory if done correctly. You can break these extra items by clicking them and dragging them over to your hot bar so that they show up as red blocks.
  6. Then, stand next to a workbench and hold down the left mouse button until all items have been destroyed.
  7. Repeat this process until you have six iron ingots.
  8. Now, it’s time to make the horse armor. First, open the inventory menu and drag one of the iron ingots over to the 2×2 crafting grid. This will create an iron block.
  9. Next, place two of the leather pieces in the crafting grid to face each other. This will create a leather armor piece.
  10. Finally, use the iron block to create the horse armor. Place the block in the center of the crafting grid and then surround it with the leather pieces. This will create a complete set of horse armor.
  11. You can now equip your horse with this new armor by opening your inventory and selecting the “Horse Armor” tab. Drag the armor piece over to your horse’s armor slot.


  • What are the different types of horse armor?

There are three types of horse armor: leather, iron, and gold.

  • How do I make horse armor?

To make leather horse armor, you need nine pieces of leather. To make iron horse armor, you need 18 pieces of iron. To make gold horse armor, you need 24 gold ingots. In each case, the player must place the correct number of items in a crafting grid to create the desired type of horse armor.

  • Can I enchant my horse armor?

No, you cannot enchant your horse armor. However, if you have an enchanted golden apple, you can give it to your horse to give it temporary protection. It will not give your horse complete protection like it would if you had an enchanted golden apple in your hand, but it is better than nothing.

  • When do I get my first armor?

You get your first armor when your horse is at least 2 1/2 blocks tall (including the height of the horse’s head).

  • How much does each type of armor protect one point?

Leather=1 iron=4 gold=5.

  • What happens if my horse dies while wearing its armor?

Your armor will drop where the horse died. It won’t break, but you won’t be able to wear it again.

  • Do saddles count as pieces of armor for this purpose?

No, they don’t, so if your horse has a saddle and you need to go somewhere, make sure you take it off.
