You want a saddle but don't know how to get it.

Now, what you can do to get a saddle, the first and one of the important things about the saddle is that it cannot be crafted.

Wait, You cannot craft a saddle but you can get it easily by just following some of community approved ways, and then I can promise you that you will be able to get a saddle and maybe more than a saddle also.

Now,
Let us discuss the topic which is all about how to find a saddle in Minecraft in which you will know about those six ways to find a saddle in Minecraft's survival.

What is a Saddle?

Saddle In Minecraft is use to ride entities. It's an awesome way to ride the creatures and then travel. It can be use to ride on a variety of creatures — striders, horses, donkeys, mules, and pigs.

A player can get saddle in Minecraft by these following methods:

  1. Nether Fortress Chests
  2. Dungeons 
  3. Fishing Loot
  4. Desert Temples/Jungle Temple
  5. By Killing Ravangers
  6. Villagers Loot

Let's talk in detail about all of them:

1. Nether Fortresses

Nether Fortress is a structure found inside the nether. It's an awesome place of gathering resources and many of the time you can even get a saddle inside the chests in it. But the question is how you are going to find a nether Fortress.

How To Find Nether Fortresses?

Fortresses tend to cluster together in strips that run along the Z-axis (north and south).
If you travel along the X-axis (east or west) then you will have the best chances of finding one; those who travel north or south may travel for hundreds or thousands of blocks before discovering a fortress.

Nether Fortress is a structure found inside the nether. It's an awesome place of gathering resources and many of the time you can even get a saddle inside the chests in it.

Here're some tips that can help you find a fortress:

  • Always travel along X-axis (east or west)
  • Drink potion of night vision for better view because there is dark in the nether
  • Use /locate fortress command in the debug menu to get the Co-ordinates of the fortress — Depends on
  • If it fells impossible to you to reach fortress after having Co-ordinates then travel underground at y Co-ordinate 9
  • Increase your game brightness and if possible then chunk too
  • You can try locating them in the soul valley because there are the most common there
  • Be sure to have some tools — pickaxe, swords, shield, shovel, armor, etc.

Also, nether fortresses are quite risky because you will find some dangerous mobs out there mainly blaze and wither skeleton. 

Take care of yourself and then after doing a little exploration in the nether fortresses, you'll find some chests and that is the place where you can get the saddle.

The command that can be used to find fortress is:

/locate fortress

It can be used by just going into the nether and then opening your command/debug menu { PC= F3, Mac= Fn+F3 }.

Tip: Be sure to read the article about lodestone to learn about locations more.

Tip 2: If it is hard to travel through the surface in nether then you can follow my method. There was a time where I just located the fortress with a command but then I was struggling with travel and then I traveled in the nether inside the ground at (y:9) to reach the fortress and at last, I got it.

2. Dungeon

The next Thing by which you can have a saddle for yourself in Minecraft is to find a Dungeon.

What is a Dungeon?

A dungeon is a place where you have some chests and a few mobs. There is a lot of possibilities that you can get the saddle in the chests as a Treasure.

Also, there is no direct way to find a dungeon. These all things depend upon your exploration and somewhere luck.


If you want to find a dungeon then I think, you will be able to find them in mineshafts, mainly found in the mesa biome. Also, there is a lot of chances to find dungeon inside universal caves or deep inside the ground.

After you have got a dungeon, you have to place torches near of mob spawner to stop mobs from spawning and then you may look for Saddle in chests.

3. Killing Ravagers

I know that you are thinking that on both of the methods chances of getting saddle are very less but what will happen If I'll tell you that there is a way where you can get a saddle and the chances are 100%.

Hmm...
Sounds Good!

Whenever you face a pillager raid, there is an opportunity for you to get a Saddle. At the time of the raid, the Pillagers come on Ravagers and if you are going to defeat him and kill the Ravagers then after dying the Ravagers will drop a saddle.

If you don't know

how to get a raid in Minecraft?

You just need to kill the boss of the Pillagers and for that, you have to find them.

If you want to find them then you have to discover the Pillagers Outpost which is found easily near the villages. After killing the pillager boss you will have a status effect called bad omen.

After having this effect you have to visit a village and with this way that effect will be converted to a raid or to remove that effect you just have to drink a bucket filled with milk that can easily be collected with a cow.

Note:- Defeating a ravanger is not an easy task because they do a powerful attack and also a lot of dangerous mobs come in this raid (vindicator, pillagers, witch, evoker, etc...)

Tip: A Ravanger can be killed in the water body easily because their speed slows down in the water.

4. Fishing Loot

Fishing is the easiest but time-consuming way to get a Saddle and other resources. For this method, you just need a fishing raid and few minutes of patience.

When you will going fishing you can easily get saddle but if you will be fishing with a normal fishing rod than it can be a little hard for you to get one.

You can find it easily from an enchanted fishing rod that is the luck of the sea enchanted fishing rod but with a normal fishing rod also this is not impossible.

But it doesn't mean that you can get the saddle for the first time. So try as much as you can and have some patience.

Tip: The only tip I can give to you is to try as many times as you can.

5. Desert temple / Jungle temple

Saddles are most common in temples and there are basically two types of temples [Desert Temple, Jungle Temple]. Desert temple is the most common and jungle temple is kind of rare.

Desert temple:

It is a temple of sand, sandstone, and terracotta. It is found in the desert biome. It also carries TNT traps so be careful and contain 4 chests where there is a lot of possibilities of getting saddle.

Jungle temple:

It is a temple of Cobblestone, stone, and vines. It is found in the forest biome. It also carries arrow traps, secret doors, piston traps and contain two treasure chests. In these chests, you have a chance to get the saddle.


Tip: If you want to find a temple in Minecraft then you can simply use /locate temple command.

6. Villager's Loot


A lot of times I have found saddles inside the chests of the Villager's in the village and I think that there is also some chances to get the saddle.

It's not a super effective idea but if you have a village near to you then you should probably need to visit it.
