Horror is from Lat. _horrere_, to bristle, and may be rendered 'shagginess' or 'ruggedness,' just as
Te magna rerum PraeCes » & aurei flegina mundi « militiam fui Hortata non horrere Gnati p LiSRR Epoion. ji Nec focias trepidafe pagnas:
hirsute is from Latin hirsutus “rough, shaggy,” related to hirtus “shaggy,” and possibly to horrere “to bristle with fear.”
from horrere we also get the words “horror” and “horripilate” (which means making the hair stand up in fear), which also related to the word “hedgehog” (!)
