As title really.....
I would like to know if anyone uses the MOD land in Farnham or Minley or anywhere else in the country, and if they think that it is unfair that horse riders are the only users that have to pay.
Dog walkers, ramblers, mountain bikers etc can all use the land for free..... why are horse riders penalised.
I would have to get £10m insurance to get a permit but the other users dont have to get anything.
I asked the warden today, if Merlin was attacked by a dog or got injured in a cattle grid, spooked by the cows/soldiers etc.... who would be accountable. His answer was to say that I could claim off of my own insurance!!!!
So I am insuring myself for others to be able to harm me and can claim off of MY insurance..... surely this isnt right!!!
The permit for Farnham is £95 per year..... plus the extra it costs for the high public liability part of the insurance. I cannot understand why it is so high. As long as I can prove that I have sufficient insurance to cover anyone I may injure (unlikely as it is) then why cant there just be an admin fee of about £20 to cover the paperwork.
Why do we accept being screwed out of money just because we are horse owners.
I realise there wont be huge amounts of people who this will affect, so please leave a reply if you can and it applies. I am in the process of trying to get this made a fairer charge and need all the help I can get.
Thank you...... and a huge slice of cake for getting this far!!!
