Changing footpaths into Bridle paths where accessible to do so
Petition Background (Preamble):
By allowing a number of footpaths to be used as a bridle path this would enable horses to stay off the roads.
This would in turn reduce the number of horseboxes/trailers on the road as well as many riders box up their horses just to be able to access the countryside and have safer riding.
Please note i have put in "where accessible to do so" I totally understand the landowners point of view
I would even be open to having a path “lead only “ option, as where i live the nearest bridle path is two miles up a busy road, but if i could gain access to just one footpath whether i could ride or lead across i can then access miles of bridle paths without coming near a road.
There must be some way of achieving a balance between rider and land owner.
