Just had an email from a horse rider who has recently had a negative encounter with a group of cyclists. She gave us this top tip: Cyclists passing horses should slow down to walking pace and alert the horse/rider of their presence. Horses are prey animals and regard quiet, fasting moving groups as predators. Both horse riders and cyclists are vulnerable road users – we share Rights of Way with each other and mutual respect goes a long way. Here’s what the Highway Code says:
