Oh good god no please don't do that to your horse!
First of all, how 'bout I stick nair in your ears? I think you know how that would feel :)
Second of all, as far as I know (I don't have a bottle handy and haven't seen it in years, my only familiarity with it is from when I used to work in a pharmacy) Nair isn't tested on animals? I could be wrong there, but why use your horse as a test subject?
And third of all, horse's ear hair is for natural protection. When the horse was designed, whoever was in charge didn't say "let's put fuzz in their ears. That'll look right cute", it's for natural protection against debris. Why bother trimming it? I've shown dressage, jumper, hunter, pleasure, and even western classes right down to western riding and never trimmed a horse's ears. I probably would at a high level, but if I had a horse that was high enough level he probably would be babied to the max.
