Harmony in the saddle!

Whether horse riders or cyclists, it is hoped that a new advice leaflet issued today (24 July) will help to make time in the saddle safer and more enjoyable for all.

The British Horse Society (BHS) has produced the Code of conduct for horse riders and cyclists in England and Wales to enable each user to better appreciate the others needs and requirements.

The BHS believes that working with other vulnerable road users is always the best cause of action in promoting multi use of off-road routes and safer use of our roads. It is hoped that this leaflet will enable both groups to have more empathy and understanding for the other.

Mark Weston, BHS Director of Access, Safety and Welfare, said: “Equestrians and cyclists as vulnerable road users share many of the same issues and it is important that we appreciate each others needs.”

Whilst incidents are rare and infrequent the charity has a facility for people to report any incident involving bikes and horses on its dedicated accident website, www.horseaccidents.org.uk.

The leaflet can be found on The British Horse Society website, www.bhs.org.uk.
