Hi Nick,

Yes that is pretty much what is already happening here.  One of the ways 
here https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/661519636 has a tag on it 
"designation=public_bridleway".  That describes the legal status of 
"bridleway" (rather than what it actually looks like on the ground).  
That allows maps such as 
https://map.atownsend.org.uk/maps/map/map.html#zoom=16&lat=52.28208&lon=-2.42987 
to display it as a public bridleway (in blue)

Best Regards,

Andy
