We share the gravel roads and some of our trails with horses. The sudden appearance of a bike rider can scare them and get someone hurt. So, what should you do?
1. Slow down or stop.
2. Call out.
This provides a warning to horse and rider as well as letting the horse know that you are only human, not some scary two-wheeled monster. And continue to talk as you let the horse and rider pass, or give them a wide berth. Let's all enjoy the ride safely.
