horse=* is used as an access thing .. so I'd not encourage its use for 
other things.
e.g. there exists horse=dismount .. I think that means the rider must 
get off the horse to proceed .. an access condition, not a facility to 
assist dismounting.

I'll raise it on the tagging list and see what they come up with.
My personal preference at the moment is for man_made=mounting_steps. But 
that is just me.
