How To Name A Horse In Minecraft

If you had no idea that you could name your horses in the game, then you’re not alone! Luckily, it is super easy to do by using a name tag

Here’s the steps to use a name tag in Minecraft to name your horse:

Required items:

  • 1 Name tag
  • 1 Anvil

Instructions:

  1. Place Your Anvil.Once you have the required materials, add the anvil to your hotbar so that it is an item that you can use.Next, position your pointer (the plus sign) on the block where you want to place the anvil. You should see the block become highlighted in your game window.The game control to place the anvil depends on the version of Minecraft:
    • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), right click on the block.
    • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the block.
    • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
    • For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
    • For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
    • For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
    • For Windows 10 Edition, right click on the block.
    • For Education Edition, right click on the block.
  2.  Use Your Anvil. To use the anvil, you need to stand in front of it.The game control to use the anvil depends on the version of Minecraft:
    • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), right click on the anvil.
    • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the anvil.
    • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
    • For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
    • For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
    • For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
    • For Windows 10 Edition, right click on the anvil.
    • For Education Edition, right click on the anvil.

    Now your anvil is open and you can see the Repair & Name menu.

  3. Add your preferred horse name to the Name Tag. Next, you need to add a name to the name tag.To do this, start by moving the name tag into the first slot. Then click on the brown box where it says “Name Tag” so that you can add a name.Press the Delete key to remove the words “Name Tag” and then type the name you would like to call your mob. It will cost 1 experience level to change the name tag.
  4. Move the Name Tag to your inventory. Now, move the name tag from the third slot into your inventory hotbar. The 1 experience level will be deducted from your experience bar.
  5. Put the Name Tag on the Mob. Now that you have finished the name tag, you need to put it on your mob. In this example, we want to use it on our horse. Stand in front of the horse with the name tag selected in the hot bar.The game control to use the name tag depends on the version of Minecraft:
    • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), right click on the horse.
    • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the horse.
    • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
    • For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
    • For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
    • For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
    • For Windows 10 Edition, right click on the horse.
    • For Education Edition, right click on the horse.

Now when you move your pointer to the horse, you should see the custom name of the horse appear above the horse head. That’s it!

If you don’t like any of these, then use a horse name generator!
