I don't think so.  Takes a couple of weeks for them to even start getting 
acclimated (has to do with the spleen, vets out there, can you explain?).  
Just go, do the ride, and get the heck out of there.  YOU will be miserable, 
but your horse will be fine.  I've found that drinking lots of water and 
taking a couple of aspirin a day (thins the blood) works the best for me at 
high altitude rides.  Good luck!
