I don't think banning slaughter would help anything, I think it's better for a horse to be killed quickly than to die slowly from being starved.
You're assuming a horse has only two choices- slaughter or being starved to death. Over here in the states we have euthanasia too. A responsible person doesn't starve their horse to death. And I would like to think a horse lover wouldn't consider slaughter a viable alternative either. It just seems like such a betrayal to an animal that has give it's live to serving people.
Maybe we should send dogs and cats to slaughter too. No need to waste their meat, I bet they'll eat them overseas somewhere. And we can tan their hides, they would make lovely coats.
