Whether we live in Fairwarp or are visiting the Ashdown Forest, we will often encounter horses and their riders. Sadly, there are a number of accidents that involve riders every year often causing serious injury. Please take a few moments to read the following safety guidelines and perhaps we can reduce the risk of more accidents in the future.
The sheep and cattle are out grazing on the Forest and in enclosures protected by electric fencing.
There are notices posted on all gates that say, ‘Please ensure all gates are closed. Dogs must be kept under proper control at all times. If a dog is seen attacking or chasing livestock it could be shot. If you see any problems please ring the Forest Centre straight away. “Thank You”
