I'm just trying to learn about searching Czech archives myself, but I tried the following:

Using the Gazetteer at: http://genteam.at/
(You have to register to search but it is free)

I searched for a location that includes "horovic" I got about 6 results, two of which could be locations for that record:

No., Other Location Name, Location Name, Parish , Crown Land
3681, Horschowitz, Horovice, Horovice, Böhmen
3682, Deutsch Horowitz, Horovicky, Dekov, Böhmen

(Böhmen = Bohemia in German)

Details for Horovice:
No.: 3681
Former Location Name: Horschowitz
Location name: Horovice
Parish: Horovice
Begin of Vital Statistics: 1649/1649/1670
Former Parish:
Former Judicial Denomination (Bohemia/Moravia and South Tirol only): Horovice
Crown Land: Böhmen
Respective Archives: Prag (Praha)

Details for Deutsch Horovice:
No.: 3682
Former Location Name: Deutsch Horowitz
Location name: Horovicky
Parish: Dekov
Begin of Vital Statistics: 1731/1784/1784
Former Parish:
Former Judicial Denomination (Bohemia/Moravia and South Tirol only): Podborany
Crown Land: Böhmen
Respective Archives: Prag (Praha)

I went over to Actapublica and searched for Hořovice in the Prague Archives:

I haven't been successful working with finding records on Actapublica myself yet - still working on understanding the German and Czech that might help me. Hope something in those records helps you!
