  • Concerns from Local Norden Residents We have received the following e-mail from a concerned resident in Norden. Please can we encourage all horse riders in the community to act in a responsible and considerate way for other path users.If you are riding through such confined spaces when your horse passes its droppings please either dismount and kick them to one side or if you can not please return after your ride to move them to one side."I'm writing to complain about the mess left behind by horse riders.

  • Yet More problems at Black Dads Unfortunately no photograph of the three riders riding through Black Dads today 28th August 2015 (about 10.40) were taken so the culprits can not be identified.The riders rode across the garden on the Bridlepath from Nabbs Wife to Ashworth Valley.

  • BHS Accident Reports Map You may recall that we were encouraging you to report any accidents or dog attacks to the BHS.

  • Advice from BHS on Hat standards You only get one head - make sure you look after yours! Rule 49 of the Highway Code states: Safety Equipment: Children under the age of 14 MUST wear a helmet which complies with the Regulations. It MUST be fastened securely. Other riders should also follow this advice. (LAW H (PHYR)R) There are a wide variety of riding hats and helmets available, all of which have been designed to ensure that the wearer is as comfortable as possible while also being protected to the recognised safety standards. Riding hats are designed to be as effective as possible to help minimise the possible head injuries involved with horse riding, but in keeping with any safety equipment, no riding hat can be ...
