Answer

The ability to display the items in the filter horizontally is not currently built into Tableau Desktop.

Possible workaround:
Use another worksheet as a filter and use an action filter.

Steps:
1. Add the items of a filter field in the other worksheet (horizontally).
2. Display the two worksheets in the dashboard.
3. Add an action filter to filter through worksheets.
