I don't think the fish would live because horses tend to drop food and whatnot into their water and it ferments. Also, in the summer, the water would probably get too warm for the fish, since goldfish like colder water. There also wouldn't be any filtration system and the water could become stagnant.
I can't imagine that it would be good for the horses, either, because the goldfish would pee and poop in the water. I definitely wouldn't want my horses drinking out of it. I know horses drink out of ponds and creeks, but that water flows and is naturally filtered. Trough water just sits there. So I don't think it would be a good idea.
