How a native speaker would describe someone's profession who has a breeding horse farm:

What comes to my mind:

He has a horse breeding farm.

He breeds horses.

I have no idea if they are natural. If they are not, then please let me know what shall I say here?

A place where horses are bred is called a Stud or occasionally Stud Farm.

The same word, stud, is used to describe a horse that is used for breeding. Hence a retired racehorse would be "Put out to stud".

So, while your second phrase He breeds horses is perfectly acceptable as it describes the activity, the first phrase would be He owns a stud, or He owns a stud farm.
