Horse sense for riders and drivers

Horse sense for riders and drivers

During the Spring and Summer months and with longer days, it is likely that more horses and their riders will be on the road enjoying the weather.

We have developed this handy leaflet with lots of advice for both horse riders and drivers.

Download ‘Horse sense for riders and motorists’ (PDF, 0.7MB).

In the leaflet we share:

  • The Off-Road Horse Riding Code of Conduct
  • Rules of The Highway Code
  • Advice on manoeuvres and signals
  • Advice for motorists when approaching and passing a horse and its rider

DFI wishes to thank The British Horse Society and Road Safety Scotland for their contribution to this leaflet.
