de deux ans
Explanation:
Effectivement, il n'y a pas de terme spécifique pour donner l'âge.
Il est cependant possible de rajouter "âgés de deux ans", mais ça n'est pas nécessaire.

poulain de deux ans OU cheval de deux ans


Explanation:
Dans le domaine de l'élevage, de l'équitation et des courses, on fait une distinction entre cheval et poulain : "yearling" à un an; poulain à 2 et 3 ans -- jusqu'à sa 4e année. (TERMIUM)

poulain n m
Cheval mâle de sa naissance jusqu'à l'âge de 4 ans. (GDT 2001)

Dans les autres contextes, dire "cheval de deux ans".

un cheval âgé de deux ans


Explanation:
Native French.
Do not say "un cheval de deux ans d'âge". It only applies for wines and other objects. For humans and animals we say "de deux ans" or "âgé de deux ans" (horses).
