Says Adrienne Yentis
A friend of mine recently was riding on the heath
and she came across a group of cattle strung out across the bridlepath with no way through – the only way off was to turn round. Fortunately her horse
remained calm throughout. But you can imagine how a nervous horse might react ........... read more

The BHS representative gave us riders a bad name
Horse and Hound January 23, 2014
Comments Tony Barnett
Horse & Hounds and all straight talking people which to congratulate BHS on the "Arrogant BHS Representative" towards the farmer, the author asks "why is BHS being unfair"

"There seems to be a lot of misinformation with regard to the use of bridleways"
Says Maureen Comber
There seems to be a lot of misinformation with regard to the use of bridleways and not enough understanding of the lack of safety for horse riders on roads in the horse and hound comments.
We need to all write and explain our predicament and perhaps request a longer programme from 'Inside Out'.
The County Council seem to have slipped up somewhere as they usually supply the information before posting any notices.

"I thought Fiona Bruce’s remark was typical of some of the goody goodys"
Says Bob Milton
Mark I thought did as good a job as he was allowed to.
I thought Fiona Bruce’s remark at the end re a locked gate on a FP and not doing anything about it was typical of some of the goody goodys

"The performance of the access officer was pathetic"
Says Tony Barnett
After watching the pathetic segment on the tele re riders access rights, and going through a farm yard is asking for trouble, the question is why? is safety going to be secured, insurance a guarantee, are farms animals to be prohibited from accessing the area, does work have to stop to allow riders to pass, and if the access points are granted riders will be allowed to stop and dismount lawfully as they can on ancient rights of way?, well I've heard of going from the sublime to the ridiculous but this is mental.
Myself and others, I do not have permission to mention have persisted with Mark Weston, Lynn Petersen to fight for rights, ancient ones at that, over common land, this of course will test the access officer and "consultant" to the limit, but no different to any application the farmer makes to the high court, both he and consultant are inadequate to meet the challenge before any court, so why start something they cannot finish?
The performance of the access officer was pathetic, the question is, did he have a gun to his head by those equally as blank?
Says Linda Wright
We moved to a Shropshire location a year ago having surveyed the local OS map and noted the significant number of bridleways around the property. Sadly the map appears a total fiction. Scarce any of the bridleways are usable ........... read more
