Before you can ride a llama, you’re gonna have to tame it. To find one you’ll need to head out into the world and explore. These fuzzy friends can usually be found in the Savanna and Extreme Hills biomes. If you’re having trouble finding one you can also summon a llama via a cheat by entering /summon llama.

Once you’ve got your llama in front of you, you’re gonna need to get some feed for it. Accumulate either 5 hay bales or 10 wheat, and you’re ready to go. Select the food and use it on the llama. Once you’ve fed it either 10 wheat or 5 hay bales, it will refuse to eat anymore. It’s at this point that it’s ready to ride.

You can also tame a llama by just repeatedly mounting it until it stops bucking you off, but that takes longer.
