this is explicitly a synonym for bridleway. It says that there is a sign bridleway. Whether the sign is reliably indicating that the way is suitable for riding a horse might depend on the region you are in, and also on weather conditions (rain, ice etc), but it is not different to any other highway=bridleway which also might cause problems for horse riders in some (supposedly rare) occasions. You might also find a nail on a cycleway and get a flat tire....
