You were at fault. You should always be able to stop without hitting the car in front of you, even if that car stops suddenly. Facing a choice of accidents (having failed to maintain a safe following distance), you should have hit the car in front of you. Cars have crumple zones; occupants are protected by seat belts and automobile structure. It was only luck that you didn't kill the horse's rider. I'll also point out that hitting a top-heavy animal like a horse, or even a deer, can cause that animal to come through your windshield.

You are. You were driving too fast for the road conditions and you failed to control your vehicle and avoid hazards in front of you.

Most likely you are at fault. You had to be driving to fast and to close to the vehicle in front of you if you hit one of the horses. Sounds like the hill is one that at the top goes down quickly. If so, you should slow down when driving over hills like that because, as you found out, you never know what is over the other side. If anyone gets a ticket, it will most likely be you.
