Notice - Horse tethering in Kirkby Stephen

26 July 2021

Please note that the same policy regarding horse tethering in Kirkby Stephen will be being followed in 2021 as it was in 2019.

Horses are free to be stopped for welfare reasons - to be rested and watered - in the town centre but are not to be tethered and left unattended.

In the past, there have been issues caused where horses left unaccompanied have obstructed the highway and blocked pavements.

Horses left tethered and unaccompanied may cause an offence of causing an unnecessary obstruction of the highway.

Thank you.
