Find Out More About Horses and Road Safety

16th June 2022

 

In support of the British Horses Society’s (BHS) road traffic campaign to reduce accidents involving horses on the roads, we are hosting an information event at our head quarters in Bransby near Lincoln in July.

Statistics released by the BHS show road incidents involving horses and vehicles are an increasing problem, with 1,010 reported across the UK just last year.

On Thursday 13th July we are inviting anyone interested in making a difference, to a free information evening.

As well as an introduction to our frontline animal welfare team, the evening will also include guest speakers Alan Hiscox, Director of Safety at the BHS, and Andy Cox, Detective Chief Superintendent, Head of Crime at Lincolnshire Police.

Bransby Horses’ Welfare Manager, Rachel Jenkinson, said: “We have run events like this before but since this is the first one since 2020 when COVID lockdowns came into force. We’re excited to be able to offer free talks to the local community once again.

“This event is great for anyone interested in knowing more about Bransby Horses and the BHS and their campaign to make Britain’s roads safer.

“Horse owners will learn a lot but equally road drivers with an interest in knowing more about what they can do to prevent and report incidents will find it useful.

“It will also be a good opportunity to hear about our work in general and to ask questions.”

Bransby Horses have been supporting UK wide projects such as the BHS Dead Slow campaign for many years and look forward to sharing some of this work with attendees.

The event is free to attend but numbers are limited so interested parties are encouraged to book a place as soon as possible.

To secure your seat on July 13th at 6.30pm, call Bransby Horses on 01427 788 464. Free refreshments will be provided.
