Dozens of horse riders showed their bare cheek to highlight road safety – by riding their steeds through the streets semi-naked.
More than 50 raunchy riders flaunted all to back a campaign highlighting the road safety dangers faced by horse riders.
Some demonstrators used riding helmets to protect their modesty while others waved signs in front of their wobbly bits.
Sonia Withers, 49, whose horse Rocky had to be put down after they were hit by a car 13 years ago, said drivers’ attitudes have not changed since Rocky was killed in Lancaster, Lancs., over a decade ago.
She joined the protesters giving shoppers an eyeful on the streets of Morecambe, Lancs., on Saturday.
Sonia said: “It has got worse since my accident. The more cars on the road, the more dangerous it is for us. People think all horse riders are posh but we are not, we work hard for a living.
“This protest is the first of many, we do need somewhere to go.”
Sharon Monks, who organised the protest, has urged Lancashire County Council to take more notice.
She said: “I’ve asked the council to put horse signs up on the cycle tracks because we have right of way as well.
“We want to let people know we are supposed to be there without the abuse. Everybody was fine with the nakedness, I didn’t ask anyone to do something they weren’t comfortable with.”
Lancashire County Council said: “We would like to increase the number of bridleways in the county as we recognise that there is only a limited number of paths open to horse riders, and will take every opportunity to secure new routes whenever possible.
“However, we have received a lot of complaints about the use of horses on the cycle path between Lancaster and Morecambe over the years, and would need to take this into account in considering any proposal to allow horses to use this.”
