Agree completely but they should be illegal in all of the UK.
Agreed they are very inhumane.
Medgull - "way too many dogs in this country who don't work for a living!"
I think that about people but it doesn't stop them leaving poo bags around.
Maybe if community officers curculated the parks more often and enforced the littering law it would help with this issue? You should write to your local council!
Ban them everywhere! They are not just inhumane when used in Scotland...
Wow! Sexist much? Do only women ride horses on roads? What about all the jockeys riding out to the gallops or just to exercise the horses in different scenery? Most jockeys are men you know? Horses were around way before cars or roads, they helped build the roads along with many other strutures, harvest and transport food and to win wars. Believe me road riding is purely a necessity not a desire. So think on, stop being so impatience and pass wide and slow when you see one sharing the road space. Now think of a campain that really matters.
