Depiction in the series

Spike sees weird stuff S2E10
Dr. Horse first appears in the season two episode Secret of My Excess; Twilight Sparkle brings Spike to his office when he starts exhibiting uncontrollable growth spurts. Dr. Horse fails to diagnose Spike because he treats baby ponies, not baby dragons, and he suggests that Twilight take Spike to a veterinarian.

In the season five episode The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2, Dr. Horse appears as a resident of Zecora's secret camp in the Everfree Forest, hiding from the changelings. When Queen Chrysalis appears to attack the camp, Dr. Horse flees in terror when a filly next to him is revealed to be a changeling.

In season seven, Dr. Horse briefly appears in A Flurry of Emotions as a doctor at Ponyville Hospital. In A Health of Information, he diagnoses Zecora's Swamp Fever.
