I'd have to ask them to show that ordinance. Far to few law inforcement people know every law and ordinance. I've had them tell me I couldn't do things that I knew I could and called them on it. In one case they wrote up my son for something, only to have it thrown out by the court solicitor before it ever went in front of a judge, because it wasn't illegal. Police can often just believet things that they've been told without actually knowing the law. A lot of times rumors get started about what is legal or not. I'd check the actual law, because in most cases the laws might have conditions for horses and some restrictions, but seldom bans on horses being used purely for transportation through an area used for public transportation.
Interstate highways are one example of a ban and I've people use that ban to tell me that riding along a highway is illegal, but it's not. Fortunately around here I haven't run into any police (yet) that don't realize the difference between the interstate hwy and a federal/state hwy or county road.
People ride through cities. They might have to follow certain rules and there might be possibly a restricted area, but they can still ride through the city.
