The owner of a pony who died after being hit by a car in the New Forest is urging drivers to slow down.

Last year 39 ponies were killed on the Forest roads, but there was also 134 accidents involving cars and animals.

And with thirteen million visitors to the national park each year there's concern that number of casualties could rise if drivers don't slow down.

Cathy Stride says this is the third pony she's lost.
