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

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.

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.

While the 2 protagnists of the story climb up to see the battleground early in the movie, there are a couple of dead horses. The camera get’s quite close on the horses and you can see flies fly away from the horses.

Seriously, Artax’s death was the saddest thing I had ever seen as a child. He comes back in the end, but it does not negate the death scene.
