This looks like the more common Dove's Foot Geranium, Geranium molle. G. pusillum is similar with fine hairs covering its fruit. Regardless, many cultivars of geranium are toxic to horses. I cannot find specific information about the above mentioned species, however. Looking at reliable publications from W. I do not see any mention of any geranium. See Protect Your Horses from Toxic Plants: https://www.nwcb.wa.gov/pdfs/Final-WSNWCB-toxic-booklet_low_res.pdf I think you're safe.
