The 19-year-old arrives at Glanford Park after Iron boss Brian Laws lost the services of Marcus Williams to an ankle injury in training this week.
The move is Horwood's second loan away from Bramall Lane after the teenager had a spell with League Two club Stockport County last season.
Horwood is expected to feature for the North Lincolnshire outfit when they start their League One campaign with a difficult trip to South West London to face Martin Allen's Brentford.
Both clubs have also agreed a fee for Blades striker Billy Sharp but that deal is not expected to be completed until next week.
Meanwhile, Warnock has signed winger Jonathan Forte to a new three-year contract at Bramall Lane.
The youngster is a reported loan target for League Two side Chester City and has only made four first-team appearances with the South Yorkshire club.
