N, there is not DNA testing that you can do for a horse of unknown or mixed breeding which can determine/assign a breed to it.

From what I hear about the testing they market for seeing what breeds are in your mixed dogs, its not all that accurate or meaningful....

Sadly I can verify that.
The clients we have who have tested their dogs are almost always completely disappointed. :(
