It's legal in the US to have your own animals slaughtered for personal consumption (except in CA and OR), but there are no equine slaughter houses still open on US soil.
If you want to have yours processed, you'll have to find a local slaughter house that will agree to do it.
As far as the slaughter/no slaughter debate, I'm not getting into it again for the umpteenth time.
