    Thanks jimmy but I wont be out on narrow roads just yet, its all arena work and private roads used it wont be until I know how to do everything that I will be allowed onto little roads. And I intend on getting a big horn and a flag and ringing all the farmers to let them know to stay in haha

    No range rovers down my area, although we have some serious amount of log trucks that go way too fast, but hope by the time I drive the babies they will be all gone

    All the truck/ lorry drivers are really great around us... and so are young men ( probably worried about thier high insurance premiums!) and bus drivers--- I agree with jimmy- the ones who do the stupid ditzy things are ussually women at least in our area. Weve been overtaken on the outside, swiped at as we've turned into drive, from the other lane (!!) horns blaring behind us, and my personal favorite- the young mother/car driver, on a narrow lane, who let her child hang out of the window, and try to pull my mares harness off as we passed! Good thing we are pretty bombproof- all that training's paid off!
