The BHS are pleased to announce that for the first time, equestrians have been included in Highway England's Accessibility Strategy.
Highway England is aiming to create and inclusive and integrated network that is safer and more secure for all road users, including cyclists, walkers and equestrians.
The BHS Access and Rights of Way department worked collaboratively with Highways England in the consultation process, to ensure equestrians were included alongside other road users in this document. The BHS worked hard to represent riders across England, and become a key user group. This means that equestrian rights will be considered alongside that of cyclists and walkers.
BHS director of access, Mark Weston said: "Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and we're pleased that equestrians will have a valuable say in our road network".
