Very near miss at Smallwood – riders beware!

At our meeting in August one of our very experienced riders described a terrifying experience with a blue tractor on a narrow lane in Smallwood.  This was an aggressive driver who actually drove at the horses. Fortunately it was the right riders and horses and a very serious incident was avoided. The incident has been reported to the police and action has been taken.  There also seem to have been an increasing number of incidents with ‘rat run’ drivers around Smallwood , probably worsened by all the issues on the M6.  If you should witness such an incident please report it to the police and the BHS .    Carol Burns has instigated the provision of ‘Slow Horses’ signs which were long overdue, in the area of the livery yard at Brookhouse Green for which we are very grateful.
