Road traffic accident involving horses

There are few horse riders who would choose to hack on a road, but unfortunately the lack of accessible bridleways, or the need to access these bridleways by public road, means that they have no choice. Horse riders do, however, need to ensure they behave in a safe way on public roads and have regard to cars and pedestrians around them. Equally, motorists and pedestrians need to have awareness of the horse, and drive appropriately for the conditions the road presents.
