 life and career
Horie was born in Katsushika, Tokyo, Japan.

She debuted in 1997 in the video game Voice Fantasia and for several years had minor roles in various anime. She landed her first leading role as Haruka in Kurogane Communication. The turning point in her career was not until 2000, when she won the role of Naru Narusegawa in the popular anime Love Hina. Other notable and defining career moments were taking the role of Tohru Honda in the anime Fruits Basket in 2001, and releasing her 1st music album in 2000. She has since become one of the most popular anime voice actresses in Japan.

Horie formed a temporary unit called Yamato Nadeshiko with the popular seiyū Yukari Tamura in 2001. They released two singles, もうひとりの私 and "Merry Merrily"—the latter of which was an insert song in the Love Hina Christmas Special.

In October 2005, she founded Aice5, a J-Pop group consisting of 4 other seiyū, to help launch their careers. Aice5 was officially disbanded on September 20, 2007.

She has collaborated with a few other artists, such as Unscandal in 2005 and Kurobara Hozonkai, a goth band in 2007.

Horie was affiliated with Arts Vision. However, she eventually left the agency in mid-2007 because of a scandal agency's top management, and became a freelance voice actress unaffiliated with any talent management firm.

She has published 7 independent musical albums. Nearly all of them incorporate at least one track from an anime she has worked with. She currently releases music under the Starchild label .

Her radio show is 堀江由衣の天使のたまご and can be listened to on the station 文化放送 at 10:00 pm on Sundays.

Recently, she won for Best Supporting Female Seiyuu in the 4th Seiyuu Awards.
