Just so we are all on the same page here.
We have established that there is zero health risk to eating horse meat.
So the actual "risk" comes from drugs that are illegal to be in meat in the first place

While I'm not saying what they are doing is right, I am curious at what point in history did horse meat become taboo? It didn't used to be that way. Was it because we deemed them companions at some point ?
In 732 A.D. Pope Gregory III began a concerted effort to stop this pagan practice, and it has been said that the people of Iceland were reluctant to embrace Christianity for some time largely over the issue of giving up horse meat. In some countries the effects of this prohibition by the Catholic Church have lingered, and horse meat prejudices have progressed from taboos to avoidance to abhorrence. Today, however, horse meat is commonly consumed in many European countries.
