A horse is killed on screen. Throughout the movie there are various horse rolls but nothing that makes me lose it. It's towards the final battle when the evil guy on the horse charges Mel Gibson's character. Pretty much then until it gets quiet again you should look away. The horse is stabbed in the chest and vaults face first into the ground. Poor creature.

There are many shooting scenes, so when they are dying, they definitely struggle to breathe. There are choking sounds and wheezes.

A whole town of people is locked in a church and the church is burned down, killing them all. You don't see the burning, but it's very clear they all burned to death.

One of the soldiers finds his family dead. He kills himself shortly after. You can pretty much see it coming. He's pacing and anxious. From there until the gunshot you should look away.

Someone *does* fall into a creek, but they have an axe in their back, so they don’t technically drown.
