This Minecraft tutorial explains how to breed horses with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.
In Minecraft, you can breed horses and make cute baby horses (foals). Let's explore how to breed horses.

Required Materials to Breed Horses

In Minecraft, you can use any of these items to breed horses:

Steps to Breed Horses

1. Find Two Horses

Once you have the required materials, you will need to find two horses to breed.
Horses are usually found in the Plains biome.

If you are having trouble finding horses and you are playing the PC version of Minecraft, you can summon a horse using a cheat.
Your horses will need to be close together when breeding, so we have built a fence to keep our two horses from running away.

2. Tame the Horses

Now a common mistake made when breeding horses is to try to breed wild horses. You can't breed wild horses in Minecraft. You can only breed tamed horses and both horses need to be tame to breed properly.
So make sure you have tamed both horses.
TIP: If you don't know how to tame a horse, you can go to our tutorial on how to tame and ride a horse to learn more.

3. Use the Food Items

Now when breeding horses, you can use golden applesenchanted golden apples or golden carrots, whichever you prefer. In this example, we will breed the horses using two golden apples.
With the golden apples selected in your hot bar, you will need to feed one golden apple to each of the horses, one at a time.
The game control to use/feed the golden apples to the horses depends on the version of Minecraft:
  • For PC/Mac, right click on the horse one at a time.
  • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the horse one at a time.
  • For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
  • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
  • For Windows 10 Edition, right click on the horse one at a time.
  • For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
  • For Education Edition, right click on the horse one at a time.

As you feed the golden apples to the horses, you will see red hearts appear over their heads. Each of these horses is entering love mode.
Once you have fed both horses, they will turn to each other and red hearts will continue to appear over their heads.

After a moment, the red hearts will disappear and a cute baby horse will be standing there.
