Natural generation Edit
Saddles can be found in chests that generate in village blacksmiths, abandoned mineshafts, desert temples, dungeons, End cities, and strongholds. They can also be obtained as a "treasure" item when fishing, as well as trading with villagers.
Saddles function in the same way as a crafted saddle; they can be used to ride horses, wyverns, scorpions, ostriches, bears, big cats, manticores and Komodo dragons. Unlike Minecraft horses, which cannot be mounted with a saddle unless tamed, wild horses can have a saddle applied, but you have to 'break' the horse in order to tame and ride it, or reduce its temper by giving it food items.
Using a saddle on any of the above mobs will equip the saddle, allowing the player to ride the mob. The saddle can be removed with shears, or by using a pet amulet. The mobs listed above will also drop a saddle upon death, if worn.
