I've happy to share the road with anyone - horses included - as us cyclists are just as much of a nuisance to motorists
However, what i detest, and in my opinion, destroys all good will towards many horse riders is the ones who think its acceptable to take their beloved steed for a walk between the hours of 7.30am to 9am or between 4.30pm to 6pm
That, in my opinion, is taking the p*ss
90% of cyclists riding at that time are commuting - they have a purpose - how many people ride their horse to work????
It infuriates me - two horses side by side doing 5mph - totally blocking the road up
I give plenty of room and i pass slowly snd quietly at normal times, but when i'm commuting, i do not, due to the principle, give them any more respect than i would passing a parking van
All lardy upper middle class tw*ts - ooo look at me, i'm so rich i don't need to work, so i'm gonna slow you lot down!!!
