Road Safety Handbook

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 as other users and must follow the same rules, but many motorists, bikers, cyclists and other road users are unaware of their own responsibilities in road sharing.

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