I really dislike the things. If your horse misjudges it they can take quite a pounding on the legs. Meg did it a couple of years ago, and I thought she'd fractured her leg, so I don't tend to ride down there now, which is such a shame as there are some fantastic rides. :(
Some of them can be quite high. They're along all the bridleways and trails near us, they're to keep motorbikes etc out.
See what nice scenery and rides I'm missing! :(
I've been debating about writing to the local council, but they've been there for years so I can't see them removing them.
