Thorsten:
There is no need for a horizontal option: you choose which variable will be
on the y-axis and x-axis by the order in which you enter them in the 
-twoway line- command. See for instance the example below:

*---------- begin example ------------
sysuse auto, clear
collapse (mean) price mpg, by(rep78)
twoway bar price rep78, horizontal || /*
    */ line rep78 mpg, xaxis(2) 
*---------- end example --------------
