Hey CW loved the photos, then I saw the horses, they are impressive too
Driving home from the huge city of Dargaville this morning and this young person was walking her horse on the side of the road. I thought to myself here is an accident waiting to happen.
As she walked down the road her horse was on the road side and she on the grass verge thus placing the horse closest to my vehicle as I passed her. I adjusted my speed so as not to spook the horse.
The danger I see is if a vehicle passed to close that horse is going to go to its left right over top of the young lady leading it. Do people not think of the safety to themselves when they get between the horse and its escape route. Often see it when walking beside a building the horse next to the building and the rider on the outside again the horse has only one way to go if spooked. Perhaps its the training the horse will only be lead from one side. Bit like some have been conditioned to only mount from one side.
Anyone else got a comment on my observation.
