Riders and horse owners are invited to an open conversation being hosted by the British Horse Society and Police Scotland on Saturday March 2nd.

The event is for those keen to learn more about riding and roadcraft, how to report incidents and how to ensure you are covered in the event of an accident.

Expert speakers will offer an insight into the rights and responsibilities of horse-riders on the roads – from trouble with drivers, to the law as it affects riders. Among the speakers are Alan Hiscox from BHS Safety and lawyer Catherine MacDonald.

A spokesman from the BHS said: “Do you ride on the road or in the Scottish countryside? If so, do you know your rights, responsibilities and the law?

"Do you ride on the pavement, ride two abreast, use a mobile when riding a horse or have you suffered from road rage and dangerous driving?”

The event is at the Caladh Inn on James Street from 10.30am on Saturday March 2nd and is free to attend, with tea and coffee provided.

Non-BHS members are very welcome to attend. For all further information and booking contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
