Saddles are an important item that every Minecraft players use, whether is for riding horse, donkey, pig or even strider the new mob. Since saddle isn’t craftable you need to find it manually. And in today’s post, I will show you where you can find or get the saddle in Minecraft.

So Here are Some Places Where You Can Find a Saddle

Note: All these places don’t guarantee that you will find saddle 100%

1. The Stronghold

2. Village Weapon Smith

3. Village Tannery

You can tell if it’s a leatherworker’s house by looking at the outside of the house. If it has cauldron on it, then it’s tannery’s house.

4. Jungle Temple

5. Desert Temple

6. Nether Fortress

7. End City

Another Way to Get Saddle Without Visiting Those Places are:

Buy (trade) It from Leatherworker

trading a saddleTry to trade it using 6 emeralds. That cheap enough though. If you’re using the bedrock edition of Minecraft then, you must level up the leatherworker into master-level first, before you can trade the saddle.

Try Fishing

Kill The Mobs That Equipped With a Saddle

1. Ravager. To meet ravager you need to start a raid. But before you start the raid, make sure you’re strong enough since you’re not only fighting ravager, you will also fight pillagers, evokers, and vindicators. So think twice!
2. Strider. Some strider may be spawned ridden by zombified piglin. If you kill it, it may drop a saddle.
