Saddles are items that can be placed on pigs, which allow the player to ride them by right-clicking with the saddle. However, the pig's movement cannot be controlled. As of 12w36a however, they can be controlled using a carrot on a stick. Saddles cannot be placed on any other mobs. The player can climb off and on the pig as they please, and the saddle will remain on the pig indefinitely. As of 1236a, if a saddled pig is killed or struck by lightning, the pig will drop the saddle.
