Want to know more about how horses and cyclists can work together to improve communication and be safer? Book your place now at the BHS Safety Conference on Saturday 22 March 2014 at BHS HQ.
The potential for problems to between horse riders and cyclists is a hot topic at the moment following the increase in cycling’s popularity after the London 2012 Olympics.
Cyclists and horses have much in common as vulnerable road users and the BHS is working to foster friendly and understanding relationships with cycling organisations. British Cycling is the leading cycling organisation in the UK and we are delighted that Martin Key, one of their representatives, has kindly agreed to speak at our conference.
Martin will share how the racing calendar is structured, the different types of events, the protocols that should be in place to ensure that everyone in close proximity is as safe as they can be, how to find out what is going on locally and what signs to look for when an event is taking place.
