>> No, it can't. It _can_ be sub-tagged to have the same _access_ restrictions_ as a bridleway and cycleway, sure, and you could probably approach cycleway with smoothness etc., but what about bridleway? How do you communicate the essential "bridlewayness" of a bridleway using subtags? How do I know that my horse* won't bang his head on the trees above, can fit through the gates and won't get reprimanded for, er, making it clear where he's been**?
There is even horse_scale, see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:horse_scale
Some horse whisperer may translate that to English, albeit bridleways represent only a very small proportion (0.007) of the total number of 9 Mio. footways and paths.
