Could the Doctor be a horse?

I was reading The Eternal Tide (no spoilers in this thread) and at one point the Doctor and some dude have a 2 hour walk ahead of them through a desert. The Doctor is saying they might not make it in time because HE can keep up a pace and not tire but the dude according to the Doctor's scans is not at peak physical shape and will be slowing them down before they are halfway there.

Why couldn't the Doctor just program his photons into a horse.. or a dune buggy and take the frail human for a very fast ride to their destination?
