Description: A bridle is an item that can be placed on tamed SWEM Horses to steer them. It comes in English, Western, and Adventure variants.
English Bridles come in 2 colors - black and brown.
An English Bridle is crafted with 1 Tripwire Hook, 1 Iron Nugget, 2 Refined Leather, and either 1 Black Dye or 1 Brown Dye.
Western Bridles come in 16 Minecraft colors.
A Western Bridle is crafted with 1 Tripwire Hook, 1 Iron Nugget, 3 Refined Leather, and 1 Corresponding Dye.
A Western Bridle can be redyed with 1 Dye of the chosen color.
Adventure Bridles come in 1 (brown & gray) color.
An Adventure Bridle is crafted with 1 Tripwire Hook, 1 Iron Nugget and 4 Refined Leather.
Bridles are part of a tack set required to control (ride) tamed SWEM Horses. Using a bridle is the first tack item that can be used prior to any other tack pieces. It is placed in a slot that is also used by the Halter - both items cannot be used at once.
Right click a tamed SWEM Horse with a bridle in hand to equip it - or open the horse's GUI menu (shift + right click with an empty hand) to place the item in the designated tack spot. If a horse already has a bridle or Halter on, you can easily 'hotswap' it for another by shift + right-clicking with the new bridle in hand.
Bridles do not offer any perks or buffs but are required to steer the horse. You can use any bridle with any other riding tack pieces to mix English, Western & Adventure. The only exception is Adventure Bridles require a full matching set to use Horse Armor, but once the armor is put on the bridle can be 'hotswapped' out for different versions.
SWEM Bridles have reins that can be used as a normal minecraft lead so never need to worry about forgetting your lead on an adventure. To use the reins as a lead, shift + left click a bridled SWEM Horse with an empty hand - doing so will instantly put them on lead and remove the reins from their neck. To put the reins back over their neck, right click the horse OR shift + left click them again and they will no longer be on a lead.
Make sure to untack your horse when they are not being ridden. Horses wearing a bridle cannot eat food, though they can still drink. If hitched, they will not be able to do either. Bridles also prevent the horse from lying down to sleep at night, and wake them up if equipped while they are sleeping.
