Ride the Horse: Armor and Saddle Mod

Riding horses is one of the most fun ways to get around the world of Minecraft, and is now one that is customizable thanks to the help of modders in the community. The Craftable Horse Armor and Saddles Mod allows you to change the saddles and horse armor per the horse you are riding on.

Craftable Horse Armour and Saddle Mod

You no longer need to loot for different equipment and armor types; now you can just mod it right inside the game. Some people enjoy the thrill of the mystery in dungeons and temples to find just the perfect armor and saddle for their horse, but some people would also rather just get right to riding and enjoy the custom benefits of their horse. For those individuals, the Craftable Horse Armor and Saddles Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is perfect for them.


Ride Online

Another amazing boon to the mod is that you are able to ride horses on different servers and show off that customization as well. Many people may be under the impression that this is simply a single-player benefit but it goes beyond that. Not only that, but you can even enjoy finding the recipes and crafting the saddles and armor together and making a competition out of it. There are all sorts of ways to go about this mod, but the most important aspect is to have fun showing off your creativity and bringing about a new sense of gameplay to Minecraft.


Create, Hunt, and Find

You have to be sure to understand that just because you have armor, does not mean it follows the same rules. Although people may understand how to craft these items, it is important to note that certain materials benefit the horses differently than it does the player. Keep that in mind when creating the recipes as you may want to use gold or diamond rather than Iron or Steel, for example. Now, the Craftable Horse Armor and Saddles Mod just gives you the ability to have the possibility of custom armor and saddles for your horses. You are still required to find the materials and ore yourself in order to make it, and that is where a grind can come into play. To some, it may be half the fun. Regardless, this is the mod that is sure to add much needed diversity to the game, especially in the online community, and is a great way to show off a different side to Minecraft not normally seen.

Protection: There is a gradual increase in the defense given from a horse wearing the different types of armor
