When I want to draw  horizontal line I use:

Automatic lines in Writer
1. If you start a new line in a Writer text document by typing three or more
hyphen characters and press the Enter key, the characters are removed and
the previous paragraph gets a line as a bottom border.
To create a single line, type three or more hyphens (-), or underscores ( _
), and then press Enter. To create a double line, type three or more equal
signs (=), asterisks (*), tildes (~), or hash marks (#), and then press
2. To remove an automatically drawn border, choose Format - Paragraph -
Borders and select no border.
3. To undo an automatic border replacement once, choose Edit - Undo.
4. To disable the automatic borders, choose Tools - AutoCorrect Options -
Options and clear Apply border.

The lines and other drawing objects that you insert in text are not defined
in HTML, and are therefore not exported directly into HTML format. Instead,
they are exported as graphics.

When the document is saved these lines are retained.
There is no need for the "Insert Horizontal Line" in the Insert menu.
