How have you survived riding on the roads up until now? It’s definitely time to start taking a more responsible attitude to keep safe - you owe it to your horse and other road users as well as yourself. It seems you are very confident riding on the roads and get the most out of it, but don’t forget that accidents can happen – and often do when you least expect it - no matter how good a rider you are. Think about the routes you are going to ride and the potential hazards, and make sure you stay alert on the roads.
