^^Depends on the horses. If they are relatively mellow or if they've been handled a lot or if they are halter broke, then they are usually pretty easy for someone with a bit of sense to load.
But, if they are full grown, never been touched, and never so much as seen a person, that can get dangerous in a hurry...even moreso than with cattle.
IMHO, at least you can load cattle from horseback without having to worry about one of them coming up to the horse your riding, arching their neck, squealing, and trying to start a fight.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
