BLUEPRINT FOR A COMMUNITY ROAD SAFETY CAMPAIGN
Bowen Island Horse Owners & Riders Association (BIHORA) mounted a Spring Road Safety Campaign in 2010. They’ve graciously shared information on their campaign with other Horse Council BC members. View a summary of their Spring Road Safety Campaign, the press release they issued to local media, and an informative poster that they’ve placed at trailheads around Bowen Island. Great work, BIHORA!
You can publicize road safety for horses on the roads by submitting a similar article to your community newspaper. HCBC has some sample press releases that you can adapt to your area. Check out this article submitted to the Comox Valley Record by local Back Country Horsemen of BC members in March 2011.
