Oh look Julian Lewis MP and the New Forest Equine Association, yet another New Forest pony that was NOT killed by a cyclists. It's quite clear which group of road users present the true hazard on New Forest roads.

Is there a history here that I'm not aware of? As this comment makes no sense.

Hmmm, I suspect the cyclists will still get the blame though!

No one will say anything about the family cars that tempt the pomies onto the carriageway to feed them tasty morsels and lead the ponies into a false sense of security. Wild pomies are generally quite flighty unless they have been 'tamed' by tasty treats!!

May the Lord strike me down for slandering car drivers!!

Have to agree with your there, as an Equestrian i find cyclists far more considerate than 'most' drivers.

I am glad you all find the death of a beautiful wild animal as an excuse for hilarity and a chance to score points for cyclists, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
I am sure it probably was a car that hit the pony and he was probably speeding but like the cycling fraternity there are good drivers and idiot drivers and until these people are prosecuted and made to pay the owners for the death of their pony then it will carry on.

Apologies, earlier in the year our inept MP and the aforementioned organisation tried in vain to concoct an anti cycling agenda, seeking to pin almost all the traffic woes of the region upon cyclists, including animal fatalities which statistics show zero involvement of cyclists. Needless to say they had no basis whatsoever to their wild claims and accusations and were rightly rebutted, but not before their foolish mentality rubbed off on a few mindless criminals who sought to deliberately puncture the tyres of and obstruct cyclists which resulted in one rider breaking their collarbone.

It's not about points scoring Geoff, it's about countering the baseless negative stereotype of cyclists created the likes of those I have already mentioned and supported by bigots like yourself. Cyclists enjoy equal status on the roads by law, it it high time certain small minded motorists woke up to this fact and stopped hiding behind the anecdotal examples about a handful of law breaking cyclists.

Hilarity? People have been trying to make a valid point about how these poor animals have been dying and why.

But all we get is scapegoating, something which you've done yet again here.

So are the cyclists. What do you not get about this? Do you hate the fact that people might just be like you and appreciate all the aspects of the New Forest?

Its not yours and yours alone.

No but cycles have no place in its infrastructure anymore than cars do but at least they stick to the roads unlike cycles who tear up the forest by riding off track
