Litter and street cleaning

Horse dung

There is no legislation that requires horse riders to uplift dung dropped on a public road or pathway. One of the reasons is that, unlike dog fouling, dung from a healthy horse presents no risk to human health.

Riders are encouraged to dismount and move the dung to the side of a public road or path, if it is safe for them to do so. However we have no enforcement powers to make riders clear up after their horses.
