There is no crafting recipe for a saddle because it can't be made, and can only be found in dungeons, Nether fortresses, Desert/Jungle Temples, in NPC villages, or by trading with a villager. In the latest snapshot, there is a chance to get it while fishing.
They can not be crafted. You have to find them in chests. Either in dungeons, or just random stronghold chests or nether fortress chests. Ever since horses have been introduced to the game. I have been in a shortage of saddles, but have had an abundence of horses. >.<

You can't make saddles in minecraft but you can in mo creatures mod :P. how to saddle a horse? First make sure there's nothing in ur hand then right click the horse. Keep getting on it until you can access its inventory or until hearts appear. Go into its inventory then place the saddle in the saddle slot where ur armor usually goes.
