I have recently visited hayling ialand to ride my horse along the beach, this was combined with a wonderful family morning. My 2 year olds boys & 10 year old niece watching their mummy/auntie ride & playing in the water & sand themselves with my partner.

That morning there were 5 other horses on the beach, all very safe & no issues caused. All horse transport perfectly & legally parked. It was a wonderful experience for all my family & horse. Myself fulfilling a lifelong ambition & my niece making her own future dreams of beach rides.
To ban horse riding on hayling island would be a travesty for so many reasons. Also the other visitors to the beach enjoyed the horses so much, with others taking pictures of me & my horse.
However I would like to add the kite sufers & wind surfers was another story, there were 100's of them, causing numerous issues and in the way of everyone & behaving very unsafe. With myself & other visitors having to dodge the kites falling to the floor, etc. With one part of the beach nearest to the shallow water being taken over by all the kite sufers, with very little social distancing being respected. These were the visitors, parking illegally & blocking other drivers in.
& of course dogs off the lead & not in control by their owners, unsafe for all visitors. Therefore the discrimination of horse riders in unfair, all access to the beach for all sports & leisure activities should be under review to ensure equality & consistency.

It would seem wrong to stop a valued privilege for many because of the mistakes of a few.. Surely that’s like stoping joggers in a park because a few are not being respectful to others? Put more signage up as regulation reminders, make certain areas for riders etc but a ban would be a step too far at this stage.

Horses were here way before your vehicles. Maybe allotted times for horses riders in the day.
