  • the Forestry Commission Wales recreation channel Dave Liddy Forestry Commission Wales Visitor Management Advisor said Mountain bike riders just like anyone else have to share the countryside with other users but while bikes can generally be relied upon to behave as directed by their owner the same is not true for horses Approached from behind or if bikes suddenly come into view horses can be spooked and behave unpredictably This can be disastrous for the rider and even if they manage to stay on they might struggle to control a frightened horse Dave said he had witnessed the results of a frightened horse coming into contact with a mountain bike which left both riders shaken but fortunately unharmed There are now more than 350km of purpose built singletrack mountain bike trails in Welsh Government woodlands which attract over a quarter of a million riders every year However there are estimated to be around 90 000 horses in Wales and horse riding is also permitted in most of these woodlands Also both mountain bikers and horse riders are legally allowed to use public bridleways byeways and unclassified public roads in the wider countryside The potential for conflict is obvious The Stop Stand Speak message really ought to be at the forefront of any bike rider s mind said Dave As a responsible land manager we want to raise the awareness of mountain bikers using our trails but the message is just as applicable anywhere in the countryside Forestry Commission Wales Recreation Ranger Andy Braund said Whether you re riding a horse or a bike just a little consideration and respect can mean the difference between a safe fun ride or a tragic accident or ill feeling between different users The video was produced by Maia Media and the horse riding community
