Question PA horse rules...

I was looking around at laws and found this.

Pennsylvania Riding on Public Roads Statutes

Can somebody simplify this for me?

16432. Owners in 22d ward may lay out sidewalks; survey; trespassing

Any owner of property on any street or public road in the Twenty-second ward of the said city, may lay out and maintain sidewalks and footway pavements of the same width as provided by ordinances of said city for streets of similar width; that the district surveyor shall, upon application of any property- owner, and payment of his fees, survey and stake out such walks and pavements; and after the same are made, any person or persons trespassing on them, with horse or vehicle, shall be liable to all the penalties as provided by law for like trespass on pavements in other parts of said city.

Horses are scared of 2 things:
1. Things that move
2. Things that don't

Here's my take: The city allows a property owner to make a sidewalk on public property. It has to be a regulation size. It has to be maintained by the property owner. Once the sidewalk is registered then it is illegal for a horse or vehicle to be on it - there is no mention of people (or dogs, etc) so they can be on it without penalty. Consequently horses and vehicles must stay in the road proper but should still be able to travel through.
