The Secretary of State has not had recent discussions with the Welsh Government on this matter.

The Government recognises that horse riders are vulnerable road users. As part of the current Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) Safety Review, The Highway Code will be reviewed to help keep cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders safe on the roads.

The full scope of review has yet to be determined but, in accordance with normal practice, it will be conducted in consultation with all relevant stakeholders, including the Welsh Government.
