No, it's not 'cruel'. It's not 'nice', may be unacceptable to some, but I don't find it cruel.

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.

No- my horse comes in sweaty frequently after running around like a loon in the pasture. I just make sure he's dry and cool before he goes to bed
