Factual error: Dan's wanted poster features a high-resolution 20th Century photo. In the 1870s, particularly way out west in frontier Arizona, the technology to reproduce and print photos like this was non-existent. Wanted posters sometimes had sketches of outlaws, but most often, they contained nothing but the name, reward amount, the crime, and a written description.
Continuity mistake: Mano's horse is shot and killed by the Apaches. But when we see a shot of the "dead" animal, it's not Mano's, but the horse Buck was riding (with a distinctive white blaze on its forehead). Apparently, Buck's horse was better at playing dead.

Visible crew/equipment: In the final scene, light patterns from studio reflectors are moving on the sleeve of Blue's shirt. He's on horseback in the middle of the desert and is nowhere near water, shiny metal, or anything else that could cause such light reflections.
Revealing mistake: The substitution of a "stunt horse" is noticeable here when Blue is thrown during an Apache attack. Before he falls off, his palomino horse has its usual blond mane and tail. But when the horse rears and he falls, it's another palomino with a grey mane and tail. The blond one is instantly back, though, when Blue gets up.
