First, select an empty slot in your hotbar (because you must use your hand to tame the horse). You will tame a horse by repeatedly trying to mount the horse and getting bucked off.

The horse will buck you off. Each time you are knocked off, try to mount the horse again. After every attempt, the horse will let you sit on it a bit longer before it bucks you off.

When the horse is tamed, you should see red hearts appear all around the horse and the horse will no longer buck you off.
