The classical Latin for "horse" is "equus", but the Vulgar Latin equivalent, which has generated the Italian "cavallo", the French "cheval", the Spanish "caballo", etc. is "caballus".
The sentence "I have a horse" can be translated in two different ways:
-equum/caballum habeo (with the verb "have"; you may change the order of these two components as you wish, the form above is the "standard" one)
-mihi equus/caballus est (literally "to me is a horse", very widespread, the meaning is the same; once again, you may alter the order of components).
