You may have seen my previous post about road rage and dangerous driving. However, one rider in the UK started a new campaign on Facebook at the start of August and it has gone crazy! Slow Down For My Horse has already reached more than 20,000 thousand people, with more people joining every day.
So, why has this campaign been so successful compared to many other failed campaigns? Well, it’s largely due to the amount of interest the photos are causing! Riders up and down the country are stripping off and posing with their horses to get peoples attention, using the #willyouslowdownformenow? The idea behind it is that many drivers do not slow down when passing horses, but if the rider was semi naked, they would slow down to look.
Please do your bit to like, share or even be brave and strip off yourself to help this campaign. Hopefully this fun way to draw attention to the issue of horse and rider safety on the roads will make more drivers think and slow down for horses!
