Minecraft horse summon command

Using the summon command to spawn in a minecraft horse is simple, take the command and enter into chat and presto you have a horse. There are a few options for summoning specific colored horses and gear, see below for explanations of some of the different options.

How to choose what color horse to spawn

Using the basic command will give you a random colored horse. To select a specific Minecraft horse color and markings (pattern) use the Variant nbt tag.

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Variant:769}

The Variant is calculated by adding the color id to the pattern id (see table below).

White Creamy Chestnut Brown Black Gray Dark Brown
None 0 1 2 3 4 5 6
White 256 257 258 259 260 261 262
White Field 512 513 514 515 516 517 518
White Dots 768 769 770 771 772 773 774
Black Dots 1024 1025 1026 1027 1028 1029 1030

How to summon a tame horse with saddle

So you've summoned the horse of your dreams, but you won't be able to ride it without taming and saddling it. The summon horse command also has tags for these. Tame allows you to ride the horse, you can use the Owner UUID (players special id given by Mojang) to make it belong to a user. The saddleitem allows you to place an item in that slot for the horse (it's just saddles so far).

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Variant:769,SaddleItem:{id:saddle,Count:1},Tame:1}

How to summon a horse wearing armor

Almost there for common horse settings, you just need armor. Like the saddle slot there's an armor slot that accepts the 4 types of armor, set that and you're good to go.

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Variant:769,SaddleItem:{id:saddle,Count:1},ArmorItem:{id:leather_horse_armor,Count:1},Tame:1}

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Variant:769,SaddleItem:{id:saddle,Count:1},ArmorItem:{id:iron_horse_armor,Count:1},Tame:1}

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Variant:769,SaddleItem:{id:saddle,Count:1},ArmorItem:{id:golden_horse_armor,Count:1},Tame:1}

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Variant:769,SaddleItem:{id:saddle,Count:1},ArmorItem:{id:diamond_horse_armorer,Count:1},Tame:1}

How to summon a baby horse (foal)

Like most passive mobs in Minecraft, you can summon a foal by setting the Age tag to a negative number (under the "Additional" tab).

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Age:-1200} (Grows up in 60 seconds)
/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ {Age:-6000} (Grows up in 5 minutes)

/summon minecraft:horse ~ ~ ~ [I;-132296786,2112623056,-1486552928,-920753162]

Summon horse owned by player, OwnerUUID NBT Data Tag (before 1.16)
