I am told "SO-Horn = P".

Determining whether or not a graph is bipartite is in P.

Therefore there should be a SO-Horn query for it.

I'm still new to all this, but here's a SO query I came up with that hopefully defines bipartiteness:

There exist R,B such that: [for all x R(x) xor B(x)] and [for all x,y E(x,y) implies ((R(x) and B(y)) or (R(y) and B(x)))]

(Every x is red or blue; if there's an edge between x and y, then x and y must be different)

But that's not SO-Horn.

    $\begingroup$ $\forall x,y \big( R(x)\land R(y)\rightarrow \neg E(x,y) \big) \land \big(B(x)\land B(y)\rightarrow \neg E(x,y)\big)$ is horn. $\endgroup$ – Ariel Jun 4 '18 at 22:28
