Do you want to tame a horse in Minecraft?

Horses were added in Minecraft’s version 1.6 update. These are passive mobs in the game that can be ridden once tamed. Horses are trusty block-based steeds that are perfect for travelling long distances across your world. 

Compared to walking, riding a horse is way more convenient similar to the real world. Who would want to walk hundreds of miles, right?
