To restore bridleways for the exclusive use of horses and riders, push-bikes and walkers; and footpaths exclusively for walkers by designating separate specific rights of way for 4 x 4 vehicles and motor bikes, therefore protecting the safety of horses and people on their own rights of way and preventing further damage to our ancient droves by 4 x 4 vehicles and motorbikes. Currently many riders are being forced to ride on roads because bridleways have been taken over by groups of motorbike riders and 4 x 4 vehicles.

  The great majority of motorbike riders, notably members of the Trail Riders Association, are extremely polite and considerate when meeting horses and riders on their legal rights of way which they both share (called 'Byways Open To All Traffic' or 'BOATS'). However, when asked, the motorbikers invariably say that their sport would be much more enjoyable if they could use a legal route exclusively.
