Maybe, but I suspect one would want a helmet with a more substantial outer shell to withstand hoof impacts. Among bike helmets I'd opt for my old Bell Biker over any current model.

One of our club riders was involved a while back in a collision with an equestrian. But the horse chose to come down on her thigh with its hoof so we didn't get any indication of bike helmet effectiveness in that situation.
