Dwarf red-leaf plum could be Prunus cerasifera or Prunus cistena, I would think. Regardless Prunus are toxic to horses so to be safe I would assume yes unless specifically indicated otherwise.

Edited to add article on Prunus poisoning in horses:

This one explains a bit more about why horses are less affected than ruminants:

Ahh, I thought it was a description and not an actual type of shrub.
