BHS dedicated accident reporting website is the BHS dedicated accident reporting website. It is hoped that everyone who is involved in any equestrian related incident will go directly to the website and report their issues. Hard statistical evidence is needed to lobby those in a position to make changes.


Government's Cycling and Walking Strategy


The BHS have drafted a letter which anyone can send to their local MP to ask that equestrians are included when cycling and walking routes are being considered. Please click here to be directed to the relevant page on the BHS website. NLBS is encouraging as many people as possible to send this letter to their MP!
