Dear sirs,

I hope you are well.

I would like to report a overgrown public bridleway which Leads on from Marlow bottom road. This bridleway is not sufficient for a small horse to ride through, let alone a horse of height. The trees are overgrown and the fence is falling into the path, which caused a very nasty accident with one of our horses and rider yesterday evening which required hospital treatment. The bridleway leads to a main road which Iā€™m sure you can understand and appreciate the detrimental impact this could have on the horse riders, and any oncoming vehicles.

Most of the public bridleways around Marlow bottom are overgrown and are not safe to use, please can I request the council do something about this so we can enjoy our horses in the local countryside without any further incidents.

Kind regards Megan Avery
