Horse emoji is the picture of the body of the noble animal in motion (probably at races — almost the only event, where it can show all of its glory now), which was once used the same way the cars are used now, i.e. as a means of getting from point A to point B. This creature also has another emoji — Horse Face emoji — which depicts its head in a funny manner; and unlike it, this one is mostly used only in its direct sense.
Examples of using
“I’m going to the races today for the first time 🐎”
“Can’t believe how fast the horses can be 🐎”
