Increasing the pulling capacity of a horse by using a collar rather than a strangle harness means you can use the horse to haul a *lot* more stuff, and haul it a lot faster than oxen will. Also, horses have a longer work day than oxen, so you can travel, not just faster, but for more hours.

Horse collars would also enable "heavy" war chariots.

OTOH, you're maybe better off heroquesting for stirrups, which make cavalry a lot more effective.
