Unfortunately, every year a high number of equestrian incidents go unrecorded. If no-one knows about them, nothing can be done. Greater Manchester Police are working together with the British Horse Society to promote road safety #thinkhorsethink15.
If you are involved in a Road Traffic Collision causing injury to you or your animal YOU MUST contact the Police via 999 or 101 you can also report near misses and various equine incidents via this link.
Drivers when you approach a Horse rider please can you :
- Slow down to 15 MPH on any road to pass a horse
- Be patient do not sound your horn or rev your engine
- Pass the horse (At least a cars width)
- Drive slowly away.
