The zombie horse stands as a difficult-to-implement mob, which is kind of a shame. The skeleton horse however managed to get fully implemented with the fun “skeleton horse trap” in lightning storms, as well as having them be a strange but inventive mode of underwater transport.
So, for the other undead horse, they could perhaps spawn in only one of these two possible settings:
- In a cursed village, maybe with a horse stall structure (though these are very rare)
- As a rare mount for trident-wielding drowned (would be a pretty daunting variant to the skeleton horsemen!)
And as for functionality in-game, some mechanics could be drawn from the zombie villagers: what if zombie horses could be cured into a random living horse? While the zombie horse could have more limited health and aquatic adaptability like its skeletal relative, a zombie horse could be cured into a living horse with a lot more health (the horse could transform at partial health, so the player will have to feed and heal it to full health).
