Look out for the horses
12:45pm Wednesday 29th February 2012 in Letters to the Editor
PEOPLE who live in Orsett and drive though it must realise that Orsett is a village, and part of village life are horses.
It is a sad case that today, despite us wearing bright yellow colours, the drivers that go through Orsett have no courtesy for us horse riders.
I am not saying all drivers, but most will still go very fast past us.
Only the other day a driver with a skip must have thought it funny to go past me at about 60mph. My horse was in a state of panic.
Please drive carefully past us – it’s for the safety of us all. – NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED.
