We have all seen roller-coasters, castles, fighting tournaments, and clever redstone creations. It's time for something completely different!

...okay, I lied. It's a clever redstone creation. However, it's a remarkable contraption that many will find a use for: the horse-powered door! No, I didn't say "a door with horsepower", but rather a door powered by a horse.

Minecrafter CnwysHeist has put together a door that will only open if you are riding a horse through it - 100% vanilla, without command blocks, mods, cheats, hacks, or anything else. I'll be honest when I say I didn't believe it could be done just from the description - how would you even make a pressure plate detect just horses, for example - but Cnwy has pulled it off, and it is quite remarkable!

Check it out, and build your very own horse door today!

Nice!!!  Before I would just use two wooden doors with an empty space above them... but this is cool... if I ever get a horse and a saddle.

Very clever trick! I'll have to remember that one... props for an excellent exploitation! :D

Now we just have to hope that Mojang never catches wind of a potential block-glitching bug and decides to squash out a really clever and useful system... :(
Define Cute (choose 1):   A) Creepers B) Aerbunnies C) Herobrine. If you chose A): You appeal to destruction and to stereotypes.   If you chose B): You are a perfectly normal person, and enjoy the Aether Mod. If you chose C): Please leave the planet now before you set off a nuclear warhead--no one enjoys mass murders, however nice they might seem to you.

Well, it's something that isn't a wanted feature of the horses, so therefore it technically is something that should be fixed. But of course you don't have to fix all bugs and who knows what Mojang thinks about it.
