I believe that there should be a law about it because horses are unpredictable animals and they can spook or bolt at anytime. If a law is created, then you can prevent a lot more accidents or injuries for both the rider and the driver.

Since the horseback riders are in the vast minority of those that travel in this day and age, it should be them who slow for the car drivers. This could cause unprecedented traffic jams and would destroy economy if it prevents employees travelling to work.

Horseback riders are choosing to not use public transport and also choosing not to be pedestrians or bicycle riders, all of which are environmentally and economically friendly alternatives to car-riding. This choice is theirs to make but due to making it, the government should highlight that it will never override the primary forms of transport and has no legal superiority over them whatsoever.
