I have a simple suggestion: horse swiveling. This would work like a boat where if you turn your head, rather than the whole horse following you, you swivel (up to 90-95 degrees on each side respective to the front of the horse). The reason I suggest this is because of how poor melee horse combat is, as currently you must always attack in front of the horse, causing you to charge straight into the enemy. This creates situations where the horse's head often blocks your view of the enemy, as well as you or your horse outright dying due to enemy attacks.
However, if we could swivel on a horse, it would not only allow us to use the horse's agility to confuse the opponent and actually let us hit the enemy, but it would also make horses a much more viable option for both transportation and combat especially, opening many new and fun opportunities in Minecraft (also I really want to fight opponents on horseback-- Could you tell?)
That's all I have to say. Thanks for reading!
