Possible, sure. Realistic, not IMHO. You'll have horses on your property, and most of the time you'll be the only one there. You'll be required to provide basic care - watering, feeding, etc - most horse owners don't come up to tend to their animals twice a day, they pay someone else to do that for them (Boarding) and it becomes your responsibility.
Horses aren't the sorts of animals that you can just put in a field or a stall and leave them for days at a time - they need to be tended to. A stalled horse needs care at least several times a day and will need to be turned out in the morning and brought back in in the evening. Even a full outside horse will still require monitoring, feeding, and watering.
And please don't take this the wrong way, but if you don't know anything about horses, you'll not be in a situation to provide proper care, or do it safely. ;)
Now, anything is possible and if you can find someone who owns a bunch of horses that lives near you, wants the entire facility for their own personal use and that of nobody else, and is willing to come up multiple times per day to tend to their animals, I suppose something could be worked out...but in the end, when they're not there (which will be the majority of the day) you'll be the go-to person. Again, in my opinion, you'd need at least a basic understanding and knowledge of horses to be able to provide even basic care and handling during those hours.
