Default Horse riding?

Do you women that ride just 'ride' or 'horseride'? The qualifying word horse used to be omitted, but now it seems customary to specify it; but Noyes's verses would, I think, lose something if you had to specify his mount:

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.
