Riding out and hacking

We aim for every equestrian to be as safe as possible when riding out. Our work is dedicated to improving safety on the road, and protecting, maintaining and improving off-road access for equestrians across the UK.

For many equestrians, hacking out is part of a weekly routine, and for some, riding on the roads is their only option. Whether you are riding on the road or off-road, it is important to know your responsibilities as an equestrian to keep you, your horse and others safe.

Incident reporting

We urge all riders and carriage drivers to report every incident they are involved in, regardless of severity, via our horse incidents reporting hub online or our Horse i app. This allows us to collate statistics on incidents across the UK, to help better understand the rate of equine-related incidents and, ultimately, to use this data to lobby for change in safety laws.
