Harassment of horses in Churchtown Southport

We all know, or should know the diseases dog dirt causes.  Blindness for one, and children are more susceptible, as well as being tread into the home etc.  How can anyone compare dog dirt to horse manure?  Horses eat grass, and the droppings are used for the garden to fertilise plants, roses and rhubarb etc.  If the horse happens to do this as it is being exercised, and rode along the road, a shower of rain and it is washed away, after all it is organic grass.  Dog dirt remains unless picked up by owner, which are few and far between.  So people give horse riders a fair deal, this applies also to the police horses, which also get a lot of flack.  So please educate yourselves on this subject, if these people who complain about the horses went down to New Market where the Queens horses are, they would be laughed at.  So I hope one day you will see sense, but I doubt it. 

PS:-  this refers to an incident that happened in Longacre Churchtown in June.
