Make Beeping at Horses & Riders Illegal.

Hi, I have started this petition after researching the law surrounding vehicles beeping at horseriders and finding no law against this.
This is a serious issue and although it is advised against in the Highway Code there is no actual law protecting riders and their horses.
Beeping at a horse whilst on the road can startle them, possibly causing them to go into flight. This endangers the rider, horse and surround motorists/pedestrians.
Please consider having a law like New Hampshire in the US which states: "Every person having control or charge of a vehicle shall, whenever upon any way and approaching any horse, drive, manage, and control such vehicle in such a manner as to exercise every reasonable precaution to prevent the frightening of such horse, and to insure the safety and protection of any person riding or driving the same."
