The village of Fernhurst lies in West Sussex, the South of England, and is located on the A286 Guildford to Chichester Road. The nearest larger town is Haslemere, just three miles distance away. Fernhurst is beautifully situated within the South Downs National Park, a hilly area popular with walkers and riders.
Hill walking and horse-riding in the affluent Weald area that includes the likes of Haslemere are popular pastimes for old and young. There are plenty of “summits” to scale for hikers with a head for heights. At 919 feet above sea level Blackdown is the highest elevation in the landscape around Fernhurst, followed by Marley Heights (700 ft), Telegraph Hill (676 ft) and Friday Hill (675 ft). At just 600 ft above sea level, Bexley Hill is the smallest of the Fernhurst hills.
While walkers pose little threat to other people traversing the hilly landscape and enjoying the views, riders can on occasion be responsible for unfortunate accidents. Most riding accidents involve just the horse and its rider but sometimes, when a rider loses control of his or her beast, the animal runs off frightened and throws somebody else off their feet or kicks them in its eagerness to get away and be safe.
If you are sedately riding through a village environment you expect motorists to know the rules, don’t creep up behind a horse and use your horn to frighten the beast out of its wits! Sadly, ignorance will prevail every so often and a silly person will beep their horn and a rider will be thrown off and be hurt. A motorist who behaves recklessly and totally irresponsibly can be made to pay compensation to those who were hurt in an accident caused by such behaviour.
Speak to an accident solicitor in Fernhurst, if you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault. If your accident happened within the last 3 years, you are entitled to compensation.
