Minecraft Patch Notes: Xbox 360 TU19 And Xbox One CU7 Add Horses To The Console Games
Saddle up, boy and girls. Horses are finally coming to the console versions of Minecraft, starting with patches that are now live for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Title Update 19 for Xbox 360 and Content Update 7 for Xbox One are now available for Minecraft players, adding plenty of new features in the game. Judging by the trailer released by console developer 4J Studios, though, the addition that the developers are most excited about is the new horse mechanic. You can check the trailer out for yourself below.
4J notes that the content update isn't quite ready for PlayStation systems yet, as Sony hasn't finished testing the patch. They note that the update will come to Sony consoles "soon."

Other than horses, the new Minecraft console update adds in new items like colored clay, blocks of coal and redstone, daylight sensors, lead, beacons and much more. New mobs that will now be found across your Minecraft worlds include withers, witches, bats and donkeys. Finally, plenty of interfaces have been introduced into the game for the new features like horses and beacons, and the game's Tutorial World has been updated to teach players about some of these additions.
