Approach the horse and press the jump button to mount it. You may get dismounted a few times, but keep getting back on until you develop a connection with the horse. Hearts will appear on your screen, indicating that the horse is now tamed.

Once the horse is tamed, open up its inventory by pressing the triangle button on your controller. Select the saddle from your inventory and put it in the saddle location on the horse. If you’re playing on the computer, you’ll need to press the E button to open up the inventory.

To put armor on the horse, search for horse armor in your inventory. It works the same way as the saddle. Once you’ve found it, get back on the horse and put the armor in the armor location.

With the saddle and armor in place, you now have full control of your horse. You can lead it around and even put it in your barn for safekeeping.
