However, when it comes to the variety of rideable mobs in Minecraft, some are arguably better for riding than others.

This is because they can move faster and jump higher than donkeys can.

Notably, mules can also carry chests for players. To obtain a mule in Minecraft, gamers must breed a donkey and a horse.


3) Horse

The skeleton horse is quite a rare mob to have in the Minecraft world. They only appear on scarce occasions when lightning strikes, and they often spawn with a hostile skeleton mob atop as well.

Because skeleton horses have a more unique look than regular horses, and owning one in Minecraft is an infrequent occurrence, they are a bit more impressive than the previously listed rideable mobs.
