There are tons of people around here who use controlled burns to start over with their pastures. Around here, burns are usually done in late winter or early spring before the new growth starts to come up. It will have some grass come up in the spring, but it will take usually a year to really come back strong. If you plan to keep your horses on there after you burn, you will probably need to supplement their grazing with hay just to make sure they have enough without overgrazing the newly sprouting pasture.
