It's not bad to ride a sweaty horse. My horses are hot and sweaty after workouts all the time. But just remember that the harder you ride them, the harder you take care of them. They need to be cooled, rubbed down, and showered after working.
If the horse is exhausted, depressed, and/or really short of breath, then I would call it cruel to ride him. Sweat alone isn't a big deal, though.
