To ride an Uma-Take, one should probably tame it first. The Uma-Take is a hasty, impatient and aggressive one, so taming it with carrots is a must. Simply put one foot on the 'step', then the Uma-Take itself will jump around and move quickly like a horse. The sound it made are like normal horse footsteps.

The Uma-Take is Nobita's first gadget in the game. It allows his to move very fast but in a jumping motion. When using it to jump, pressing the Y button(get off the Uma-Take) will make Nobita jumps, enabling him to reach higher places.

The Uma-Take cannot be used underwater.
