? Where did you see that? I've seen period accounts of salted pork & beef, the salting of fish, boars, seals and even penguins. But I don't recall ever seeing a mention of salted horse.

Salted Horse is a slang term used for any salt-cured meat.  The term was often used by soldiers in a derogatory fashion when referring to their low quality meat rations.  Actual salt cured horse meat is eaten in some Asian countries.

For the salt cured horse meat in asian countries, how is it salted?  I read that most of the salt in Asia was traditionally transported and used as a brine (such as fish sauce, soy sauce, etc.) instead of as dried salt.  Would that still have similar curing properties?  Or would it essentially pickle the meat in a salty brine?
