It's simple, you put the horses on the ship and feed them. The ships then had plenty of livestock with them. Cows, pigs, chickens. They also carried feed. Those animals would be eaten on the journey.

Also, the journey didn't take months. Columbus took 5 weeks, or 33 days to reach America, and he didn't really know where he was going. Once the conquest began, so did cartography. The crews who sailed to the Americas were all trained sailors, usually under trained and experienced command. Travel times would eventually drop.
