Today, I was riding on this some what narrow country road used by both cyclists and equestrians. So two women were on horseback about 40-50 feet ahead.. I find I am often heard by squeeking my brakes. So, I wanted to approach the horse caustiously, not sure how they re-act.. Should I have shouted . That seemingly is more startling.? So from afar the horse picked up on my hybrid's squeaky brakes.. Next, the horse starts wildly bucking and a little out of control... I shout, ok to pass. She says. Wait.. She gets off the road..
Recommendations as how to approach horses from behind so as not to spooke it...?.. . This has happened before and the horse was used to bikes and no problem.. Not this time..
