bike vs. horse etiquette on the road

Still very new to riding. This morning on one of the back country roads I ride around 930, no traffic no people. Come around a gentle sweeper and see a woman on a horse she's off the road on the right side by ten to twenty feet, she's a hundred feet away facing me. As I pass her (only probably riding at 15mph). She asks me in the future to warn horse riders when you're approaching.

Not sure what I could do short of singing merrily on my entire ride to let a potential horseback rider know a bike is near. Am I missing something, think she's way off base. Had she been riding facing away from me I certainly would've spoken up, but since we laid eyes on each other the same time?
