Road safety bible for riders.

The British Horse Society (BHS) has updated and republished one of its most popular books, Riding and Roadcraft.

Aimed at teaching riders safe practise when riding on the roads, the book covers topics such as The Highway Code, Falls and Injuries and Roadcraft. The new edition looks further into emergency vehicles.

The book is essential for anyone wanting to take the BHS Riding and Road Safety Exam and it is also recommended that anyone riding, or thinking of riding, on the roads purchases a copy.

Roadcraft is essential to any rider who has to take a horse on the highway and this book provides the information needed to help you to be a safe and competent rider, particularly when accompanied by riding and road safety training.

BHS Head of Safety, Sheila Hardy, said: "I am delighted with the success of this essential book. This new edition will ensure that riders are kept up-to-date with issues relating to riding on the road.

"Current exam candidates in possession of the tenth edition will not be at a disadvantage when taking their BHS Riding and Road Safety Exam. However, the BHS does encourage riders to obtain a current version."

Riding and Roadcraft is available from the BHS Bookshop, tel: (08701) 201918 or visit www.britishorse.com priced pounds 5.95. BHS Gold Members receive a 10pc discount on production of their membership number.
