I've figured out how to tame horses. It's actually pretty simple.
Steps:

1. Find a horse (make sure to have wheat, bread, apples, or whatever you want to feed it with).
2. Mount the horse.
3. While mounted, feed it the wheat/apples, etc.
4. every now and then you may see hearts fly out as if you were breeding animals.
5. Eventually you may want to unmount the horse and put a saddle on it.
6. If you can put a saddle on it you've got a tamed horse that can go pretty fast! :D
(I'm not 100% sure if this will work, I used a donkey, but I doubt it's really a different method.)
Hope this helped!


If someone already made a topic about this sorry, but I looked around the forums and didn't find any.

Actually you mount a wild horse until hearts come off then you saddle it.
Giving it food is not necessary but it makes it easyer.
Paul made a video on it, you should watch it!
I'm a curiosity sealed in an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, encased in a conundrum, entangled in confusion, shrouded in mystery,
contained in a puzzle, obscured with the unknown, masked in a paradox, and lightly sprinkled with intruigue. Deal with it.

Hmm alright, I didn't get the chance to watch that video yet. I'll make sure to later.

That's really helpful, thanks :D Horses also have armor now which is pretty epic, PVP will never be the same >:D

Paul made a video on it, of course. :) I can hardly wait for horses, because I've been wanting them since I began playing Minecraft. Also, the Donkey, or Mule, I don't know exactly which it is; has a chest on it that looks like saddle bags. That kind of portable storage would be really cool to have. (Speaking of portable storage; I wish vanilla MC had backpacks, etc. like FTB does.) Anyway, we're eventually going to get Horses, as well as Donkeys with saddlebags. By the way, both species will have the ability to wear armor too. Alright!

As is usually the case, the Wiki should be the firs place to look to answer such questions. There'a already an entry for Horses, with sections on Taming, Breeding, and Food effects.

On Taming:


To tame a wild horse, approach it and right click on it with an empty hand. You will climb on top of it, and will likely be thrown off. After a few attempts, it will allow you remain on it and will give off heart animations. At this point you can dismount it by pressing the Sneak key and place a horse saddle on it.

The chance of successful taming on the first try is 0%. Every failed attempt increases this chance by 5. This means that on the second mount the player has 5% chance of success; on the third - 10% etc. Taming can be sped up by feeding the horse any of the approved foods when you are standing next to it - see column "Taming prob." in the table above.


Thanks to the new launcher, I've been able to play around with the snapshot. From my tests, the above information is accurate.

You don't have to use wheat (or any other food) to tame a horse; using food merely improves the probability of taming. Without food, you are guaranteed to tame a horse within 21 attempts. The first attempt, you have a 0% chance of taming, and each subsequent attempt improves the chance by 5%. So, on the 21st attempt, you have a 100% chance of taming.

But if you do use food, you might as well feed *before* trying to tame, especially before the first attempt. In my tests, spamming a horse with 5-10 wheat pretty much always leads to taming on the first or second attempt. (Also, note that sugar, wheat, bread, and apples all have the same effect on taming probability (+3%), so either wheat or sugar will be the most cost-effective. I expect the food effects to be balanced during the dev cycle.)
