Horses in real life battles were uses to ram the enemies and maybe crash them under the horse's hooves. In Minecraft, however they are not that useful. Here I have a little suggestion
Horse strenght value
Each horse will have a strenght value, such as health and speed. The minimum is 2 hearts of damage, the maximum 14 hearts of damage. Also, every armor tier will add damage, with the leather armor giving 0.5 extra damage, iron and Gold 1 extra heart of damage and Diamond 2 extra hearts.
When a player is on a horse, and presses the sprint button, the Xp bar would turn orange and red, and will act as like as we want to jump, but, instead of jumping, our horse does a really fast sprint, and if we hit a mob/player, it will be knock away and damaged by the attack.
This addition will make horses more useful in combat, because we can do a lot of damage, and this would also bring new strategies in pvp.
