How to Get a Saddle in Survival mode?

Originally, there are 3 ways using which you can get a saddle on your own.

Find a Chest in a Dungeon

The 1st method includes finding a chest inside a dungeon & use it to add a saddle to the inventory. Here’s how you can do this:

First, find an underground dungeon. In case you don’t know, dungeons are made of cobblestone and mossy cobblestone and generally look like a small room with a monster spawner in the center and single/double chests filled with valuable items.

There are 2 ways to find a dungeon – By digging underground or making a quick switch over to Spectator game mode and flying down underground. After finding the dungeon, get back to Creative or Survival mode.

This is how a dungeon looks like in Minecraft:

Now that you’re in a dungeon with creative/survival mode ON, look for chests inside it, One thing to note here is that every chest contains different items than your got earlier.

After opening a couple of chests, if you’re lucky, you can even get your hands on Saddle or other items valuable within the game.

You can fish in any body of water, and whenever you do, it’s highly likely to find treasure instead of fish. However, by default, there’s a less than 1 percent chance of reeling in a saddle.

If you want to increase the odds of finding a fishing rod with a “Luck of the Sea” enchantment. Add a Tier 3 “Lure” enchantment for faster fishing, and you’ll be reeling in a saddle in no time.

All you need is a fishing rod and water. Anybody of water is suitable, too, whether it’s standalone or part of a large river, an ocean, or just a manmade pond.

Find a Chest in the Nether Fortress

The 3rd way to get Saddle in Minecraft is via the Nether Fortress. This has been available since the release of Minecraft Nether Update in the game.

If you’re looking for Nether Fortress, the only place you need to look at is Nether and you can go there by using the Nether Portal. This will transport you to the Nether and then it becomes completely clear as you’ve to look for a chest inside the Nether fortress.

Once again, if you’re lucky, you can find a saddle in a chest.

Final Thoughts

Getting a saddle in Minecraft is as easy as following either of the three ways explained at the top. I hope you were able to use them to find a saddle.

That’s all for now.
