Since 1.9, boats can supposedly transport two entities... I can not for the life of me get my horse into the boat.

Can it be done? If yes how? What about a donkey?If not, which animals can be transported, which can not?


You can get both inside.

Find/breed a baby horse/donkey

Push it into the boat

Stuff it with apples to grow

Tame it

Put a chest and/or a saddle on it

Enjoy your ride!


I recommend you use a lead to tie your horse and ride the boat like in this picture:

Don"t worry about the lead, as long as you are in the boat.

You are watching: Minecraft can horses go in boats

I don"t want to give out misinformation as I don"t have any proof that Mojang intentionally removed mobs entering boats, so I"ve removed the update section of this answer.

Additional proof that this is, in fact, replicable in 1.16+


Get them close to the boat and walk into them repeatedly to "push" them towards it. It might be easier if you use a lead on them and guide them directly into it, though.


Make the boat stuck so it doesn’t move then push it into the boat. Best if you trap boat in a 2x2 and walk onto the boat with the lead to the other side of where the horse is to lead it in.
