How To Tie Up A Horse In Minecraft


Don’t tie up your horse in Minecraft with a lead: it’s too easy for the horse to get free. Here’s how to do it right.

You will need to craft a lead. Just go to your crafting station with the following four items:

In order to create a lead, you will need to craft an iron ingot with three pieces of string and one piece of slimeball.

To make string, mine hemp plants in the swamp biome and place them in the crafting table. To get hemp seeds, use shears on tall grass or wheat plants that grow in most biomes. You can also find these seeds while fishing! The best way to acquire these ingredients is by using the Silk Touch enchantment on shears, which makes it so they cannot break blocks and all items obtained when harvesting them will be dropped as if they had been mined normally (which means no bonus damage).

To create dyes for decorating your horse, collect dye flowers from swamps or jungles by placing them in water for about 20 seconds then drying them out with a furnace before gathering them up again. Alternatively you could just craft some red wool or cotton armor with red wool/cotton balls from sugar cane farms at night when zombies are less aggressive towards players due to their lower visibility during darkness–this works especially well if there isn’t much daylight activity nearby either since mobs tend not come out unless there’s people around!

1. String

The simplest way to tie up a horse is to use string. To get string, you need wool from sheep and spider eyes. The latter can be obtained by killing a spider (you’ll find them in caves), while the former is an easy task that involves killing or taming a sheep and shearing it.

Once you’ve collected all the necessary materials, right-click on the horse with some string in your hand and choose “Tie up”.

2. Slimeball

Slimeballs are crafted by combining a slimeball with a gunpowder. To make one, you’ll need to kill some slimes—the mobs that spawn in swamp biomes and are immune to fire damage.

Slimes will drop the materials you need for this recipe, but you can also get them from trading with villagers who sell them for emeralds or gold ingots (or any other item equal or lower value than these two).

3. Any color of dye

Note: You must have a dye in your hand to successfully dye a horse.

  • Any color of dye

Dyes are made from flowers or cactus, and can be used to change the color of wool, leather or banners. You can also use dyes to color your horse’s saddle horn and armor (if you have any). Just click on the item you want to dye with your left mouse button and then hold down the right mouse button while moving around. When you let go, it will apply whatever color(s) were selected by dragging over that particular part of your horse’s body.

4. Iron Ingot

Iron ingots can be crafted from ore blocks, which can be mined from the dirt in Minecraft. Iron ore blocks can be found in mineshafts, igloos and dungeons. To craft an iron ingot, you will need 4 pieces of iron ore (or 8 pieces of stone).

Iron ore is used to make tools like a pickaxe or sword and armor such as boots, helmets and chestplates. It’s also used to create redstone dust which is useful for creating redstone circuits or devices in-game!

The lead can be dyed any color you have the dye for.

You can dye your horse’s saddle, reins and armor any color you have the dye for. To do this, you have to use a cauldron. Any cauldron will work, but it is recommended that you at least use one of iron or higher quality. Open up your inventory and select the cauldron icon. You should see an interface like this:

  • The white square in the middle represents the water in your inventory (or lava if you want to use that instead).
  • The 2nd line down shows how many buckets of water/lava will be added to your inventory when selected.
  • The 3rd line down shows how many drops are left in your bucket(s) of water/lava (1 drop = 1 bucket).


And that’s it! Once you’ve got your horse tied up, you can go about your business in Minecraft knowing that it won’t be wandering off. You can always come back to the spot where you left it to ride again later on, too. It will take a little bit of practice to get comfortable with tying up a big animal like a horse and making sure that it doesn’t escape from you when you want it around, but we think this is one of the most useful features in all of Minecraft and hope that everyone plays with it at least once!
