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:​TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/​DG_069858

Road users requiring extra care (204-225) : Directgov - Travel and transport
Driving safely around older pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and other vulnerable road users
