I have no idea about this name, which seems most popular in Coventry.
In c1907 Mary Dormer Harris wrote. ' What a medley of humanity have found entertainment in the courtyard and under the gables of that old Stuart house that falls daily into greater decay. There was the casual wayfarer, for it was once an inn bearing the sign of the ' Golden Horse ', in proof whereof may be seen the board behind the door under the archway giving all kinds of coaching information. Lastly a king and courtiers, and many of the Royal Blood of the House of Stuart on sundry occassions, partook of the hospitality of the Hopkins family, who held the house for more than two hundred years....and the noise of a factory mounts up from the place where in times past was a pleasant garden ground '.
In 1822 J. Quiney ran the Golden Horse in Bayley Lane. That cannot have been the same premises as the Golden Horse in Earl Street because Bayley Lane is on the opposite side of Earl Street. We can only surmise that when the Bayley Lane Golden Horse closed Mr Quinney took the name and his customers to new premises in Earl Street.
