Yesterday afternoon I was driving home at about 25 mph through our subdivision when coming at me on the other side of the street were three people on three horses. Gorgeous horses. Big horses. Very calm.
Just walking along. *clip-clop, clip-clop*
Not knowing what to do when driving past horses on my suburban street, I slowed down to about 10 mph. The people on the horses nodded, waved, but did not smile, as we passed each other.
Ever self-aware, I realized that I may have done something wrong.
So here is my question: when driving through city streets am I supposed to treat horses as cars and just drive on by; OR am I supposed to slow down [stop?] when I see them?
Anyone got an answer? I sure don’t. This is all new to me.
