A marketing campaign to coach motorists on how they will safely move horses on the street occurred in a Huntingdonshire village.
The group of 10 horse riders and two helpers rode via Holywell-Cum-Needingworth as a part of the Move Broad and Gradual marketing campaign on September 19.
The journey aimed to unfold the phrase concerning the significance of protecting a protected distance, ideally a minimal of two metres, whereas passing horses at no larger a velocity than 15mph.
Horse rider Jane Ellington, mentioned: “We’ve had a number of folks come previous far too quick and too near us.
“Some folks suppose they’ve joined the F1 within the village, but it surely’s a village with a number of the velocity limits as little as 20 mph and 40 mph in different areas.”
The British Horse Society statistics state that just about two horses every week are killed on UK roads. Since Feb 2019 to Feb 2020, 1037 incidents have been reported.
“Many of the drivers on the morning both drove gradual and broad previous us and some stopped, smiled, waved and took pictures which was good to see,” Jane added.
Equisafety donated a Hello-Viz waistcoat and hatband for the raffle, whereas pictures have been taken by Tess Cadman Nation Pictures.
Almost 180 rides/drives have been organized throughout the UK on September 19, with one even happening within the USA.
