Crazy New York Law Restricts Time with Your Horse
Occasionally one comes across a law that makes people shake their heads. At some point, people or persons had to sit down and think that there is a need for this law. Was it because someone thought it was a good idea to walk their horse in the dark?
Here is the law as it is written in New York State, as of 01/02/2019
Chapters 1-372, 377-454, Vehicle and Traffic:
§ 1264. Ban on night riding. No person shall ride or lead a horse upon a roadway during the period from one-half hour after sunset to one-half hour before sunrise. The provisions of this section shall not apply to
horse-drawn carriages or carts or police officers, peace officers or park rangers mounted on horseback.
Do you think that there is a need to ride your horse before or after sunset on a main road? Think twice about it as it could garner yourself a ticket and be an issue to your (and to your horses) safety.
