In CS6 there are now Environment Layers that do the same kind of mapping. The might only be available in the new Ray Trace mode, however. I have not compared the two as to which is better.

You must be using the Ray-traced 3D renderer. CS6 does not do environment mapping in the default Classic 3D renderer.

If you have VCP Element 3D, you could use that to add a camera-aware environment to a Classic 3D scene.

If you have After Effects CS6 then you should have Perspective > CC Environment, which does the same sort of AE camera aware spherical mapping as Trapcode Horizon (without the options for generating gradients directly in the effect).

Check your render settings in the top right corner if it says Classic 3D change it to ray-traced 3d and the Environmental layer submenu item should become available. You should also have the image layer 3d turned on. Rendering will take considerably longer with ray-tracing though. Sorry, I did not see Walter's post.
