In Minecraft, a saddle is an item or piece that cannot be created either with the table or furnace. However, some items are to be found and gathered for this.
Mostly, a Dungeon that has a chest can contain the Saddle, or maybe a Nether Fortress or a saddle can be caught while fishing. It is one of the popular items in the Minecraft game, but it is not one thing that can be easily created on the crafted table or in the furnace by players.
It can be found in survival mode as mentioned above, that is, a Dungeon and Nether Fortress. If a player needs to or wants to ride a horse, donkey, mule, or pig, a Saddle is the only thing that can make it happen.
Moreover, Saddle is not to be created but to be found. The Saddle for horse, donkey, mule, or pig is used to ride it for faster transportation in Minecraft. There is no such recipe to craft a saddle, by the way.
How to Find a Saddle in the game/ Survival Mode
Find a Dungeon for chests located a Dungeon in the game, which is underground. A Dungeon seems to be a small room that has a center spawned a monster in it, one or two chests which will be filled with the significant items.
The walls and floor of the Dungeon will be of cobblestone and mostly mossy cobblestone. If a player wants to find a Dungeon, he/she can dig underground or immediately go to spectator game mode and find a Dungeon by flying downward underground and then switch back to the mode like survival or creative. This is how a Dungeon looks underground.
When a player finds the Dungeon, then he/she should look for the chests inside. Every chest will differentiate in items containing. Open the chests and take a look at what inside. A saddle can be in any of the chests in the Dungeon.
Chest in the Nether Fortress
Another way around is to get the Saddle to find the Nether Fortress. A player has to go to the Nether to find the Nether Fortress and the chest located inside it. If a player never went to the Nether, he/she can create a portal called the nether portal, which will take the player to the Nether.
The portal will take the player to somewhere between the Overworld and the Nether. Once a player has found the Nether Fortress, he/she should look inside to find the chests.
There might be many chests there, and each chest will contain different significant items. Open all the chests inside to find the Saddle. There is a high chance that the player can find the Saddle inside the chests.
Fish a Saddle from the water
A Saddle can be found from fishing in Minecraft. Enact your fishing line in the water. Some bubbles will start popping out of the water from the swimming fish. Soon after a while, the fish line will be closer to the bubbles popping out, and the bobber will be pulled under the water.
Then we have to reel the fish line out of the water; if a player gets lucky, he/she will find the Saddle, and it will automatically be part of the inventory.
As clearly discussed above that a saddle to ride a horse, mule, donkey, or pig in Minecraft can only be found in certain places mentioned above like Nether Fortress, Fishing Water, and in the Underground Dungeon.
Chances are most like to get a Saddle is from Fishing, Nether Fortress, and Dungeon accordingly. To find the Dungeon, we dig the ground, travel through a Nether Portal to go to Nether Fortress, and put a reel into the water to get a Saddle.
