Horseback Pigs are Pig Soldiers that are spawned riding a horse and are found in Animal Kingdoms. The horse and the pig soldier are counted as one mob. They have the combined power with the speed of the horse and the armour of the Pig Soldier, making them a tough mob to fight.
Pig Soldiers have a 20% chance of being spawned riding on a horse. They go twice as fast as the player sprinting. The horse varies in color between four different patterns. Usually, there is an average of five Horseback Pigs in each Animal Kingdom.
