No, actually. The state’s driving while impaired law, General Statute 20-138.1, states that the definition of a “vehicle” for drunken driving enforcement specifically excludes horses.
However, in 2007, the General Assembly modified the law to remove two other exemptions, so it is now possible to be charged with driving while impaired while on a bicycle or riding lawnmower.
