Bessie can be spawned by right clicking with the Bessie item.

If Bessie's health is depleted, it will drop its item, allowing the player to respawn it.

Mounting

Player entities

The vehicle can be mounted by the player via right clicking the entity.

To dismount, press the Sneak key (default: Shift)

Non-player entities

Non-player entities can also mount Bessie if they are pushed into its hitbox, walk into or led via a lead into Bessie's hitbox.
