Reopen HMS Cambridge to horses

This petition had 396 supporters

The National Trust has recently decided to ban horses from using the HMS Cambridge path, Wembury, a path enjoyed by many horses and riders. This will be a disappointment to many, as the link between Heybrook Bay and Wembury point avoiding the road. This is one of the few places horses can be ridden safely off the road in the Wembury area and its closure will result in horses being hacked out on the road more.

I am sharing this information to highlight the difficultly encountered by horse owners trying to stay off the highway where possible.

In my experience of using the path, it has been enjoyed and shared amicably with many other users who seem to take pleasure from seeing the horses enjoy the path.

The National Trust is supposed to be an inclusive organisation: 'We look after coastline, forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, nature reserves, villages, historic houses, gardens, mills and pubs. We restore them, protect them and open them up to everyone.' I have always respected other users and the country code and am grateful of the care that is taken for the land.

This problem can be resolved by allowing horses to enjoy the path once again.
