How to Ride in the Road

A – Riding Straight:
1- keep to the left

2- keep a horse you are leading to your left

3- move in the direction of the traffic flow in a one-way street

4- never ride more than two abreast, and ride in single file on narrow or busy roads and when riding round bends.

5- You should dismount at level crossings where a ‘horse rider dismount’ sign is displayed.

B- At a Junction or Roundabout

*keep to the left and watch out for vehicles crossing your path to leave or join the roundabout
*signal right when riding across exits to show you are not leaving
*signal left just before you leave the roundabout.

-II- Dogs

-III- Herded Animals

These should be kept under control at all times. You should, if possible, send another person along the road in front to warn other road users, especially at a bend or the brow of a hill. It is safer not to move animals after dark, but if you do, then wear reflective clothing and ensure that lights are carried (white at the front and red at the rear of the herd).
