Horse riders promote safe road sharing

Hand Signals used by Horse RidersAccording to Manitoba’s Highway Traffic Act, horse riders and drivers of horse-drawn carriages have the same right to use the road and must follow the same rules, but it is found increasingly that motorists are unaware of their own responsibilities in road sharing.

With increased development in rural areas and the reduction in off-road trails, motorists are more likely than ever to encounter a horse and rider or horse and cart on the roadway.

The Road Safety project includes a brochure for the motorist “Sharing the Road with Horses” and a Road Safety Handbook for riders.

A copy of the "Sharing the Road with Horses" brochure PDF can be downloaded here.
