Cars and jeeps have been involved in the highest percentage of reported incidents with horses

85 per cent of horse riders say they have experienced issues on Irish roads.

12 per cent of those incidents resulted in an injury to either the horse or the rider.

The Road Safety Authority, Naas based Horse Sport Ireland, Curragh headquartered Horse Racing Ireland and the gardai have launched a road safety appeal calling on horse-riders and other road users to share the roads safely.

Cars and jeeps have been involved in the highest percentage of reported incidents with horses, while cyclists, vans, lorries and agricultural machinery account for an equal share of the remaining incidents.
