Howdy, Partner!


Hey y'all, welcome to the Ranch n Craft Wikipedia!

Ranch n Craft is a family friendly horse based server, founded by MysticTrev and TyshowUri, and operated by a very friendly and knowledgeable group of folks from all over the world since February 15th, 2015! We’re known around these parts for bein’ a rather hospitable group, welcomin’ the newcomers into our community. Whether lendin’ a helping hand around the barn or helping someone who’s lost find their way, we’re here for you! There’s a darn good reason why we’re on PC Games Top 10 Ten Minecraft Servers list for over 3 years now. Come on in and see what all the commotion is about!

We’re running a custom built horse plug-in to give y’all a truly one of a kind playing experience! I tell ya, the realism is out of this world! There’s the breeding of horses; steadfast stallions and mythical mares, and many different breeds y'all can choose from!  

On our server, it’s as close to havin’ a horse as you can get! If you’re into barrel racing, we’ve got that! We got folks hosting all kinds of events ‘round here all the time! We’ve got dressage and event jumping too. But what would a horse server be without horse racing? Yep! We have that too! There’s so much more, but I tend to get a bit long-winded at times. So ask around n’ see what’s goin on!

Raise and train your foal from birth with our unique breeding system. A flighty filly or a courser colt, if you’ve got yourself a good one, don’t worry! We can help get your horse registered. You can even track your foal's heritage by getting a DNA test! And, our highly skilled veterinarians are here to help you raise a happy and healthy horse! Get your horse vaccinations, or get treatment for an ailment should your trusty steed be a bit under the weather.  Horses' hooves need a trim? Need a shoeing? Our farriers are second to none and will keep your moody mare or gluttonous geldin firmly planted on all fours!

I tell ya, good groundwork is key to gettin’ your saddle on that hearty Haflinger. But hold on tight, cuz there’s still work to do to get that quirky Quarterhorse on par with the higher level horses in the corral! Cuz just like the real deal, the more effort and work you put into your horse, the better it’ll be! Keep your prized possession, or trade with another player! Sell n’ buy! Or lease if that fits ya better!

We can’t begin to tell ya about every detail in a few short words; So, please use this wiki to guide you through our amazing server!

Minecraft: Java Edition

As we state, we are a Minecraft multiplayer server built for pc gaming. You don't need to do anything to join us, except have an online Minecraft account and a willingness to join a great community! We use 1.12.2 as our base server version, and this gives us some awesome features. With cool updates coming such as farriers, horse registering, and horse clubs, we're ever expanding and getting better! Server ip:

Getting Started

One of the many cool aspects of Rnc is the ever-growing economy. Through trading, jobs and more, players are able to make money in multiple and creative ways. Through this section, we will discuss some of the most popular ways to earn some extra spending cash while online.

Making Money


The must-have when making money, Jobs! You may have a total of three jobs. Jobs on our server, refer to small Minecraft related tasks that earn you income for performing them. Take digger, for example, every time you dig you earn money. The most popular jobs for fast cash are digger, miner, and woodcutter. Another popular jobs combination is a miner, builder, and explorer.

/jobs browse to search for a job.

/jobs leave [oldjob] to leave a job. You will lose your levels in the job if you do this, so be sure of your choice!


Buy/Train/Sell horses (See below or click "Buying/Selling" in contents). If you have some time on your hands and you don't mind leveling, becoming a trainer is a great way to earn some extra cash. If you are reliable and fast people will be begging you for help. Get to know how the traits work; they now have a huge role in 3.1.

If you’re looking for steady reliable income, Willow Creek Rescue & Rehabilitation is always hiring new folks to help out with the daily chores. Do note, that you should have a few days of play time before you apply. Also, there are requirements to work there. One of which is time commitment and a good work ethic, so please keep that in mind.

If hired, you will get paid weekly based on your productivity. The more active you are working, the bigger the paychecks. You could earn a big chunk of change just by scooping some poop! You can learn more about Willow Creek Rescue & Rehabilitation here.

Houses, Farms, & Land

Buy/Build/Sell houses, ranches, barns, and more. With the release of 3.0, horses are now able to stay out permanently unless manually despawned. This means that houses, barns etc, are now viable and can be used as stalls and any other form of containment. Buying and selling them could reap you some major rewards if you play the economy right.

Our server offers community housing that you may rent for a set weekly price. We have a wide variety of styles to fit the needs of everyone!


Looking for a cozy and communal lifestyle? Then this hobbit home haven is for you! The sleek yet warm underground homes are spacious and perfect for escaping the outside world when you need to. Traverse the community in a boat to fully take in the secluded views, and head on up to The Mountain Inn for some good lunch. Enjoy a community gathering area that branches off into your humble abodes, as well as a gorgeous floral hillside landscape and plenty of wildlife.


If you’re not a fan of the modern-day lifestyles, then you might find your knight in shining armour here at this medieval milieu!

Enjoy some social time in our large igloo well-suited for this community who live the simple life, and have some fun snowball fights!


When you start playing, mining, and earning cool rewards, you want to make sure your home is safe and secure. If you used the community housing, you're already protected, however, when you move out on your own you will need to make sure you claim your land. For this, we use Grief Prevention. In our opinion, it's the best and it has never let us down.

Grief Prevention stops grief before it starts automatically without any effort from administrators, and with very little (self-service) effort from players. Burn proof, blast proof, and theft proof.

Claiming land is simple. Equip a wooden shovel, click the far left corner of your claim, and then the opposite corner diagonally across from your first corner. You can also say "need help claiming" in game and a how to video link will display.

Your First Horse

Claiming a horse is extremely important. Unclaimed horses are horses that are not owned by anyone. You are not required to claim a horse in the academy; however, we highly encourage you to. This is the only opportunity to claim a free horse. If you do not wish to claim at this stage you can still obtain a horse later on for a minimum of 20k. As a member, you are allowed 3 horse claims. More claims may be acquired via ranks on donation store or single horse-slot purchases either on donation store or using horseshoes in /h shop.

Claiming a horse is easy, simply sit on the horse and type /h claim <NameOfHorse> For example, if you wanted to name your horse Willow, you would type "/h claim Willow". Don’t worry, you can change your horses name at any time. After the command is typed, another box (GUI) will pop up and ask you to choose a breed. Choose wisely, this can not be changed (without a donation).

Once your horse is claimed, it is protected from theft and damage (not including injuries and illnesses). You will now also have many other options available to you and your horse. However, your horse is not completely safe.

Just like in the real world, horses can, and will, get sick. It is up to you, your vet, and your farrier to ensure that your horse is in tip-top shape


Vets are trusted people who all undergo training to become a vet. In 3.0, vets are streamlined and at this point, really easy. However, come future patches, the hope is to have more illnesses and injuries, big or small. The vet will be required to look at a list of symptoms, and then diagnose an illness from those symptoms.

Any player may become a vet when the vets expansion comes out. Players with paid ranks have a much better chance at getting vet than those who do not. This is because we feel as though those that are paying for a rank are far less likely to up and disappear than those who have “no ties” to the server. We also feel this is yet another perk for those that are able to and willing to support us month after month.  For those that do not have a monthly subscription, the requirements will be pretty steep. A word to those interested that do not have a rank - play time, behaviour, and communication are key things we will be looking for in both players who have paid ranks and those who do not.

Vets as of now have only a few commands to use, but again, this will change as we put out more and more content.
