Here is a video I made which shows you how to get the saddle easily and then the best way to get the achievement.

Updated
~Thanks Warbuff6644 for this post.
If your like me and waited until the October 17th update to the game, you'll have to delete the game and re-download it. Otherwise the seed is completely different with the new biomes they added; you'll spawn in a snow covered pine forest.

What you'll need to do is delete Minecraft, redownload it and when you launch the game, decline the update. This will allow you to use this seed and get the achievement offline.

Here is how you delete the game. Don't worry all your worlds are separate save files. On the Xbox dashboard, go to the Settings blade and choose System. Choose storage, the device Minecraft is saved to, then choose Games & Apps. Choose Minecraft and delete the MineCraft:Xbox 360 Edition. Now just access the Xbox Live arcade, download the game again, and decline the update when you launch in.

___________________________________________________________________________________
Well, in this video I show you a work-around to get the seeds to work. Furthermore, how to get the Achievement.

ATTENTION: Title Update 12 occurred on August 23rd, 2013. Since then, I wasn't able to find any of the saddle locations previously stated to be in the Tutorial world. But I have found one all on my own since the newest update, and will share it with you guys, it should be there.

So after the latest update, load a Tutorial world, have your map out and go to the point.

X: -38 Y: 61 Z: 7

You should be in a dungeon and a see a mob spawn, open the chest and a saddle should be in there. This worked for me. I would like to know feedback on this solution if it appeared there for others since the update, if so, great. If not, I will take this down. I just want to let everyone know.

Once you have a saddle, I went to the stables where animals are pinned in fences (close to the location of the saddle), it's just down the steps of where the castle is. You can go farther down and destroy the fences that are around the wheat, just across from the stables, Then go back to where the pigs are fenced in. First, from the outside of the fence, dig a pit, I would be safe and go at least 6 or 7 down and maybe 4 or 5 long and wide. Then get yourself out of the pit. A useful thing is to have dirt out and then jump and place, jump and place, until you get back to the top. Then fence around where you have dug. Then get in the where the pigs are, I'd highly advise saving, so if anything goes wrong, you can dashboard and load up again. After that, you can then delete the fence blocking the pit, and put the saddle on one of the pigs, hit it with nothing equipped so it won't kill it easily, and it will start to run around inside the fenced area, it might try to run to the opposite side of the fence, if that is the case, just keep fencing inside so it keeps pushing it farther and farther to the edge. Try and wait until it is facing the direction of the pit, then it will run right off and the achievement it yours.

Again, please let me know whether or not this solution worked for you, I tried my best to describe what I did. Thanks!

First things first, you need to get yourself a saddle from a random chest spawn. You'll find chests in any of the random dungeon / cave areas dotted around the maps.

Finding a saddle is very luck based but you can increase your chances by specifically selecting certain "seeds" when starting a new game. I used the seed, "Dead Mau5" as this has a guaranteed saddle spawn in one of the dungeons. If you spot the giant floating structure from where you spawn, head towards and underneath that to find a cave. There is a chest inside with a saddle, bucket, iron ore etc. You will spawn in a slightly different place each time, but using this central structure will help you to find your way.

With your newly aquired saddle in hand, find a piggy and build a wall round it ASAP then put a door on the front to keep him contained. There are numerous pigs on this map so finding one will not take long at all.

Once he's trapped, build a large pit in front of the door. This will be your "cliff". Once you've dug sufficiently low, saddle up on the pig and open the door. If he doesn't walk out on his own accord, get off and give him a little push, making sure to mount the swine as he's falling and this will pop the achievement.

I happened to be capping when I earned this achievement so have attached a video which shows you the rough idea of how to pop the achievement. Sadly, it was night time ingame when I was recording so the video is a little on the dark side. I've tried to brighten it somewhat but can't do much more with it sadly.

Credit goes to SahdowHunterMK over at xboxachievements.com for this.

As of 19 April 2014 at 8:00 PM EST this works for the latest TU (I can confirm as I did this and got the achievemnent):

Seed: 888
Coordinates: X: 278, Y: 68, Z -264

When you spawn you will be in a grassy, cliffy hill region with LOTS of pigs about. You need to cross the ocean to get to these coordinates. Use the map of course. The coordinates will put you in a sand pit. there will be 2 sand mounds. The mound on your right next to the wall is on top of the chest in which you will find the saddle. You only need to dig down 2-3 blocks to hit the chest. The mound on the left contains a monster spawner at the same depth. Once you obtain the saddle head back to where you spawned, saddle up a piggy, jump on them, then hit them until they fall, wee, wee, wee, all the way down the hill. The achievement is yours!

To get this you have to place a saddle on a pig and then ride it off a ledge sufficiently high to cause the pig damage when it lands. Locating a pig atop a cliffside is best, but you can also dig a vertically-sided pit four or more blocks deep near to your target pig and try to get it to fall in once you're on it's back. Once you've placed the saddle on the pig with the left trigger, press left trigger again to ride it. Once it's on the pig, the saddle can't be removed and will be lost if the pig dies, so it's worth saving your game before your attempt.

What makes this hard is that you can only find saddles inside treasure chests in dungeons, so this is quite a tricky achievement to attain. If you're very lucky, you might come across a dungeon accidentally while tunnelling, or even more rarely, they can be visible on the surface, but the most likely way you'll find them is by exploring cave systems as all dungeons are linked to one of these. Dungeons are recognisable because they have cobblestone / mossstone walls (most natural cave walls will be stone, dirt or gravel), and contain a monster-spawner (a small cage containing flames and a small, spinning monster avatar), as well as monsters that have spawned - either spiders, skeletons or zombies. The dungeon will also contain one or more chests containing various treasure. If you're lucky, you'll find a saddle amongst the items.

The seed I put was 115. The dungeon should be a few feet from you. I made this video personally. So, I hope it helps and enjoy. Sorry for the blur, but it is useful.

In the post 1.8.2 update TUTORIAL world there is a monster spawner near x-246/z-297. The chamber is not very far underground y53, so dig about 10-12 blocks strait down and you should find two chest, one of which has a saddle. Once you find it you can follow any of the solutions for wrangling a pig.

There is also a saddle chest ay X:-220, Y:41, Z:278. Credit goes to Lebrohnski for finding this one.

Hope this helps, please leave a response before a neg vote if I need to add something.

Update 12/12/12
I read that the next update is going to change the tutorial world again, so if you still need this load and save one now.

Ok so first of all if you need help with this achievement (and/or into the nether) just message me on Xbox and i will help you get this achievement when it is convenient for both of us. Also, I will try to get a video in for this guide. Now to the actual guide. So i used the seed 888, put the difficulty to peaceful (look at Skycaptin5's guide if you want a video) and it would either spawn me in the water or on the sand. So you are going to want to go forward and right and go through a little valley, and on your left you should be a little lake. Past that lake will be a dungeon and in the chest will be a saddle. Take the saddle.

Now the first thing to do is go and chop down some wood. (A couple trees or 10 wood should be sufficient) Now turn the wood into wooden planks and you should have 40 planks. Make a crafting table, and turn the rest of the planks into sticks (72 sticks). Now make fences with the sticks and you should have 12 fences. Now go find a pig and start putting the fence around him. You need for him to walk into the fence and then you can finish the fence around him. There should be 4 blocks for him to roam in, 2x2, and the fence should be 4x4.

Now start digging a pit right in front of the fence. It should be 5 blocks high, 4 blocks wide (the way the fence goes), and 2 blocks long. To get out just destroy one of the walls right outside of the pit and then block yourself up (jump up and put a block under yourself) After that put a block right behind the fence and jump in with the pig. Put your saddle on the pig, and start destroying the two fences right by the pit. Then hop on the pig, wait for him to be right by the edge, and when he's right by the edge of the pit give him a little push (punch him) and he should fall in, if not, rinse and repeat.

I found a saddle on the tutorial level at patch level 10 (most recent as of May 7, 2013) by travelling above ground to the following coordinates:

X: -64, Y: 71, Z: -252

At those coordinates, I found a single block of dirt missing in the ground. I dug STRAIGHT down in that spot until I fell into a cavern. No more than 15 steps away, I found the moss-stone of a dungeon, with a mob-spawn under a waterfall, and a chest containing a saddle.

I hope this helps others who are looking for the saddle in the tutorial level on the latest update! Let me know if this works for you!

UPDATE: Title Update 12 is reported to be bringing a new tutorial level! Therefore, this solution soon may not work after patch level 12. Get your saddle from this location while you can!

Hey!

This video that my nephew and I made show you the SEED to use, the CO-ORDINATES for the location of TWO SADDLES, a guide for how to make a CARROT ON A STICK, the locations of some PIGS, and some tips on how to use the CARROT ON A STICK to make the PIG suffer FALL DAMAGE while you are RIDING IT.

This works with the latest title update (I'm posting this 23rd May 2014), but it is more than likely it won't work with future updates, so do it now while it works! We won't be updating or maintaining this guide.

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED 11th MAY 2014 USING MOST RECENT UPDATE

Seed: 7193690091418266643
X:275 Y:74 Z:246

After ages searching I found a saddle in the abandoned mines. The saddle is now in the chest between two crafting tables.

The hardest part of this achievement is finding a saddle so all you need to do now is find a pig.

Don't save the game so you can reload

Hi everyone!
Basically this coordinates are from a dungeon where you can find a saddle and luckily there's some pigs around this biome.
So you just have to dig a hole and make the pig fall without dying and you'll get the achievement.

This solution is a seed to a saddle location. Use your map to locate exact spot. The area is mostly sand, and the chest is in a small pit. You don't have to dig very far (a few blocks).

There is a village just in sight, and from there are hills. I found pigs in the hills, blocked one in and mined downwards outside the barriers to create a very long drop. I then worked my way back up, put the saddle on the pig, broke the barrier and quickly jumped on to the pig (left trigger). After a great fall the cheevo popped.

This works on Title Update 11

http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Xbox_360_Edition_version_h...

Seed = 8881
x = -349
y = 64
z = 168

I won't maintain the solution. It is very likely to be redundant after the next title update.
