Slow Down for Horses

Slow Down for Horses

Horse Riders are a regular sight on the roads within the village. Both riders and car drivers should ensure they are familiar with their obligations under the Highway Code and that the relevant care and consideration be given to riders.

  • Be particularly careful of horse riders and horse-drawn vehicles especially when overtaking. Always pass wide and slowly.
  • Horse riders are often children, so take extra care and remember riders may ride in double file when escorting a young or inexperienced horse or rider.
  • Look out for horse riders' and horse drivers' signals and heed a request to slow down or stop.
  • Take great care and treat all horses as a potential hazard.
