The West Country has some of the most dangerous roads in the country for horses and their riders.
The South West has the second highest number of collisions and near-miss incidents between horse riders and other vehicles.
The British Horse Society say there were 60 incidents last year with most happening in Devon and Cornwall.
Police forces across the West Country are running educational exercises to make sure both drivers and riders can share the roads safely.
Drivers should follow this advice to pass a horse and rider safely.
- Slow down to a maximum of 15mph.
- Do not sound your horn or rev your engine.
- Pass wide and slow when it's safe and always drive away slowly.
There are rules for horse riders too such as wearing high-visibility clothing.
However riders like Katie in East Budleigh still find people do not take notice.
