Road Safety Awareness
I was very upset this morning at a post on facebook concerning an accident involving horses on the road. this is how I feel.
Road Safety awareness. I hope with the lighter days we'll all be able to get out and about riding. Please always be aware that most drivers have no education in how to behave around horses. Most drivers are very courteous, some few are not ...and some few are outright deliberately dangerous.
Please smile and wave, if safe to do so, at any driver who has shown courtesy...I now have bus drivers who cheery wave even before I do and most of the vans on the busy part of the road are very polite and wave too..... even if all they have done is slow down from 60mph to 55........ if you are nice perhaps they will be better next time.
Plese wear lots of 'bright' , bridles, tails, necks, legs can have velcro on brights, reflective and bright sheets over your horse, I love the Parsons Rump as I don't like the flapping sheets. Humans can be decorated too... I know I'd like more than my over-vest, I plan to get a hat band and probably chaps too.
i am fed up with the speed and the greed of the world around me but i have not found nor can i offer a cure
