Dry bites vary quite a bit by species, but 65% sounds awfully high. A quick skim of scholarly reviews on aggregated snakebite cases in South America and southern Asia typically listed dry bite rates in the teens, with one article suggesting rates from 30-42% were extraordinarily high. However, one would expect some subset of reported dry bites to be harmless bites from misidentified non-venomous, which would suggest the true dry bite rate is slightly underreported.

Although the danger of a nervous horse in a confined space should not be underestimated, I would think most fatal horse accidents happen while riding, in many cases when the horse has lost control of itself and is also subject to injury or risk. Just not seeing this comparison.
