**With as few spoilers as possible** Horse deaths are implied or off screen. For what it’s worth, the main characters of the film go to great lengths to protect/rescue their horses once they understand what’s happening. One character considers the horses disposable, but their plan fails and the horse survives.

Specifically, I think one gets beheaded. It's considered in poor taste by the onlookers, but it happens.

In the very first episode of The Walking Dead, the horse that Rick rides to Atlanta is eaten by walkers. Then, in season 5, Daryl and Aaron are outside of Alexandria and a horse named Buttons is also eaten.

A horse commits suicide by jumping off a bridge onscreen. Multiple members of Bojack's family (father, uncle, grandparents) have died offscreen before the series starts.

As Ellie is riding away from the group of men her horse is shot from underneath her. It's particularly sad since she was just giving it water the scene before. :( They also end up eating the horse.

Horses feature, and like dogs and cats, they *can* die, but they can be prevented from dying.

Horses are common in Skyrim and are almost always killable. (You can kill Shadowmere but she respawns at her death place after a while) and in Helgen, a dragon is shown to kill a horse in the middle of the town.

There is a line that says “We have resorted to eating our horses”, but the presumed eating of those horses is not shown.

Presumably if there were horses in the area, they were executed along with every other animal - wild or domesticated. There are no horse deaths, or even horses, on screen however. There is a deer or similar creature briefly shown as dead by radiation poisoning.
