Can You Make Horse Armor In Minecraft?

Diamond Horse Armor

Minecraft I love it, PewDiePie seems to be playing it again, and it’s just fun. However, Horse Armor is a topic that a lot of people just spread flat out incorrect information on.

So, let’s talk about Horse Armor can you make your own? Are there multiple types and where can it be found in the open?

No, Horse Armor Is No Longer Craftable

Horse Armor was originally introduced in 1.6.1 (13w16a). There were three types of armor included (Iron, Gold Diamond). However, in a following release 1.6.1 (13w18a) the ability to craft the armor was taken out. There was no longer a recipe for horse armor in the game.

So, you are currently not able to craft horse armor in any version of Minecraft. So, no matter what anything says online you are currently not able to craft Armor in Vanilla Minecraft on the latest version.
