A skeleton horse is a variant of horse in Minecraft. The following is a picture of what a skeleton horse looks like in the game:
Hostility Level (Passive)
A skeleton horse is a passive mob. The term mob is short for mobile and is used to refer to all living, moving creatures in the game such as chickens, creepers, and skeleton horses. Because a skeleton horse is a passive mob, it will never attack you in the game (Creative or Survival mode).
In Minecraft, a skeleton horse has 26.5 for health. This gives a skeleton horse 53 health points (because 1 heart = 2 health points). To kill a skeleton horse, you need to inflict 53 points of damage.

If the skeleton horse was wearing a saddle, it would also have been dropped when the skeleton horse was killed.
