Beating a Dead Horse is a 6-track EP by General Mumble. It is the fifth release in a series of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic themed Halloween EPs, and the first since 2015.
It was originally not going to exist, but since a Halloween track (Goodbye, Holiday) was finished just prior to Halloween, it was decided that it would be fun to give it a home on an EP, alongside the previous year's "Death In The Treetops". The EP also comes with a 20-minute megamix of spooky tracks from previous EPs and albums.
The title of the EP is a joke on the fact that ideas for My Little Pony-based music are running low for Mumble, while also fitting the "mildly-spooky and horse-related" title quota.
The album artwork is recycled from Headless Monsters and Horse Magic, a CD released in 2014 exclusively for the BUCK convention in the UK. containing the two Halloween EPs that were available at the time, The Headless Horse EP and Monsters & Magic. It was lightly reworked for this release, with some overlays removed and a recoloured background.
