I set my guides too low on the page and want to move ALL the horizontal guides at one time to the correct location.

There's no way to select multiple guides in PS, but you can try this method to move all of the horizontal guides:

1) Increase the Canvas Size by the Height amount and opposite Anchor direction you want to move the horizontal guides.
2) Select all layers and set View to 100%.
3) Use the down-arrow cursor key to move the layers to the bottom of the extended canvas. Hold down the Shift key for 10 pixels and without the Shift key it's 1 pixel movement.
4) Crop the image to remove the extended top canvas area.

I don't understand anything past "Increase the canvas size" in the 1st step. The rest I get! Hey, thanks so much for taking the time to respond. I'm going to go "play" to see if I can figure it out. Thanks!

Go to menu Image> Canvas Size and enter the Height size in pixels that you want to move the horizontal guides. Use the below Anchor point to move the guides higher (upward).

Since this is available in Illustrator I don't see why it shouldn't be incorporated into Photoshop. I'm submitting a feature request for this.
