Are horses afraid of snakes?

Generally, yes, and some horses are even afraid of anything that remotely resembles a snake (the hose moving apparently on its own because they can't see the person pulling it can be a major horse eating monster).

They are instinctively afraid of snakes, although snakes are one of the few things a horse is more likely to fight or kill than flee from. Like anything else, though, horses can be trained not to be particularly bothered by snakes.
