We have an agent GPO "Do not redirect client printer(s)" starting from Horizon 2012, which can do this. Please refer to https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon/2012/horizon-remote-desktop-features/GUID-81E84F1C-C446-46....

When you install the horizon agent you pick a printing option, you should be able to just reinstall the horizon agent without that to prevent printer redirection at all if you don't need it globally.

You don't want the integrated printing feature then, thats what redirect printers from user desktops to the virtual desktops. The GPOs will disable that , but if you don't need it at all just reinstall the agent without it.
