Horse owners held to different standard?

While running to and from Briones park recently, avoiding various piles of horse manure, it dawned on me that horse owners are not held to the same standard as dog owners and required to clean up droppinga from their domesticated animals. Why is this the case?  They present the same hazards and it’s a problem that can be easily addressed.  Horse owners should be required to carry the appropriate tools (as dog owners do) to clean up after their horses so that we can all use trails and paved paths without the hazards of dodging droppings.
