Nope. The issue is not about which animals are stupider and therefor OK to eat. The issue is food animal vs. non-food animal.
Here in the US, horses are not food animals. We keep them as pets, just like cats and dogs. Even if I went to a foreign country, I wouldn't eat horse meat. Number one, it's a delicacy and one of the most expensive meats you can buy. Number two, you have no clue where it came from. Horses are not raised like cattle and pigs. You don't know what kind of vaccines, dewormers, or other drugs the animals had prior to being slaughtered.
And mostly because horse slaughter makes me sick and I couldn't live with the idea of eating something that used to be someone's pet.
I also understand that humans are omnivores, but that doesn't mean we have to eat everything that moves.
