So no IMO, horses dont see colour as such but they do see shades of light in different tones - this could be confused for them seeing colour as they have done tests, like the one that Jazzy mentioned, that show they can recognise different tones.
Edited to add - I think that this is a loaded subject that could go around in circles for days as i just googled the subject to see if i could find a medical study to back up what i said and i found multiple studies to verify BOTH sides of the story, some scientists say they can see colour and some say they can not.
