The upcoming Minecraft 1.6 update will have minecraft horses. It will also have minecraft horse armor. This image from developer Jeb’s instagram feed shows a minecraft horse, saddled with full armor and tethered to a fence post.
That’s right. If you’re worried about having to leave your horse somewhere whilst you hunt creepers, or if your minecraft stables aren’t quite built yet, you can tether your horse to any fence. You know what this means? Minecraft hitching posts and minecraft mounted pvp.
