Maybe horses can carry two people at the same time). For the second sentence, there are some horses and we are going to ride them (most likey we are going to have our own horses). It could mean we are riding our horses at the same time, but it just depends on the situation. (It's a little difficult for me to explain, so I'm very sorry if this doesn't make sense to you)
