Horses and Trail Riders don't mix. Do they?
England & Wales enjoy approximately 100,000 miles of public rights of way. Horse riders have access to approximately 20,000 miles. Trail riders can access approximately 6,000 miles.
Trail riders and horse riders are both vulnerable road users and the TRF encourage all our members to show horses and their riders the courtesy and consideration that they would expect in return.
Animals and vehicles can both enjoy and share the countryside with a little common sense and respect. Our Code of Conduct, by which all members agree to adhere to, provides guidance on how to behave whilst trail riding. We often encounter horses and special consideration is given to this within our guidelines.
