Campaigns advising drivers of the speed and distance they should pass a horse have been launched by the BHS and HRSA. BHS statistics suggest that over 2000 incidents have been recorded in the five years that the BHS horse accidents website was launched, most of these were due to cars passing TOO CLOSE to the horses.
36 horse riders have died | 181 horses have died

HRSA are proud to show their shocking video aimed at drivers to promote more awareness on the road. Many thanks to all who donated to the making of this film.
Mary & Flo, illustrated by Wendy Avery are the latest HRSA campaign. The short video series aims to provide fast information to drivers about what horse riders are trying to tell them when they are on the road. See Part One: Turning below! Animation by DeeFee Productions.
