The BHS launches the Equine Activity Survey

1 Oct 2020

The British Horse Society has created a survey to learn more about the activity of owners when caring for and exercising their horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. The survey also aims to understand their activity when using public roads and off-road tracks together.

At The British Horse Society we are actively campaigning for improved equestrian road safety and access to safe off-road riding routes.

The Department for Transport in the UK publishes annual statistics about the activity of motorists, cyclists and walkers. No such information is currently available for horse owners, loaners or sharers and we would like to change this. It will be extremely helpful to establish some baseline figures, which will help us with campaigning for improved equestrian road safety and access to safe off-road routes.

Anyone that owns, loans or shares a horse, pony, donkey or mule in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland is being asked to complete the survey.

The survey is part of a larger study investigating equestrian road safety.
