Coyotes do not normally (very rarely) stay in packs that large, they're mostly closer to 2-5 animals.
If they really are pure coyotes, I couldn't tell you if they pose a threat or not, as I've never even heard of that many being in the same area (let alone a pack) around me.

They are getting very bold in this area and can even be seen at daylight. I think as long as the food is plentiful your horses should be fine although the deer population took a big hit this year....
