As for on trail rivalries? Around here it's more MTB's vs equestrians! MTB's and roadies don't use the same trails so don't see why there would be any discord amongst them.
...But, a great many of the parks here share trails with horses. The trouble arrises out of skittish horses (...and their riders) being surpirized and frightened by the bikes.
The MTB-roadie rivalry is settled during Cyclocross season
I haven't has issues with horses on the trails
