vertical loads are applied in the vertical direction, and horizontal loads are applied in the horizontal direction.

Johnson/EQE) Subject: 1997 UBC 1630.1.1 Equation 30-1 combines the effects of horizontal and vertical earthquake loads. However, the code fails to indicate how the combined load is to be applied for purposes of design. Are we to infer that this combined force is supposed to be applied in the horizontal direction only? It's not clearly stated in the code.
