Yes you should be concerned about the ground if you live in an area that is sinkhole prone. All areas where horses are kept should be regularly checked, maybe even daily for issues if the horses are keep 24/7 in this area. Even if the homeowners state they don't have issue where the horses are corralled. It's possible there will be in the future, also keep in mind since they are selling the place, they could be lying about it to get a sale. I'd avoid this place if it was me looking to buy, however if you have your sights set on buying the property. Just going to have keep up with the holes and repair them. Like another poster said fill the holes with large rock. If the fenced area for the horses is just one large open area, might wanna consider to divide it up to put the horses in the other area if/when a sink hole appears.
