"highway=bridleway" is in use, and is used to mean something designed
for horses to use. In rural areas that might coincide with something
that also has the legal "designation=public_bridleway", but sometimes
not - farmers may add "permissive bridleways" through their fields to
allow access as an existing horse route.
From the description given, I don't think this is an actual bridleway
as such (see the picture at
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dbridleway ), and so I
don't think it would make sense to map it in OSM as a "highway=bridleway".
