As an motorists you should know:
- to watch out for horses being led or driven on the road
- to leave as much space as possible to allow for unexpected movements by the horse
- to take extra care on bends, crests and on narrow roads
- to slow down when passing a horse so your vehicle does not startle them
- to not use your car horn around horses
- to understand that their are inexperienced riders out there
As an equestrian you should know:
- to know and obey the rules of the road
- to use clear hand signals
- to wear an approved protective gear, including helmets & high visibility clothing
- to always ‘look, check, and look again’
- inexperienced riders - to always be accompanied by experienced rider
As a property owner you should know:
- to watch out for horses being led or driven on the road when you are working in your yard
- to move away from the horses or temporarily turn off any loud equipment being operated near the roadway so as not to startle the horse
