Advice for riders

  • Wear your riding hat at all times and make sure it is correctly fitted.
  • Ensure that the horse's or pony's shoes are in good condition and that they are not loose or badly worn.
  • Make sure that all tack (including saddle, girths, leathers and bridle) are in good condition.
  • Keep to the bridleways created by the council, shut gates and ride quiety past other animals.
  • If you have to ride on the road, use the left-hand side and be alert to anything that could cause your horse to shy.
  • Always wear reflective clothing. Use reflective bands around your horse's fetlocks and carry a stirrup lamp if you have to ride after dark.
