The British Horse Society wants to know what riders – and, more specifically, their horses – think of wind turbines.

The society says wind turbines are increasingly common in parts of Britain, from single domestic installations to large wind farms.

Some equestrians are already riding or driving close to or among wind turbines but others are concerned about the safety of themselves or their horses in the vicinity of turbines.

The British Horse Society wants to identify any concerns surrounding wind turbine developments in order to guide its policies and support its responses to planning applications.

It is therefore conducting a survey. Replies to the questionnaire will provide evidence of equestrians’ needs that can be used in responding to proposed turbine developments, and ensure the society is operating on fact and not assumption.

 

The survey can be found here.
