Cleethorpes: Girl thrown from startled pony on beach

A Lincolnshire riding school is calling for stricter rules for pet owners after a pupil was thrown from her startled pony on a beach.

The girl was part of a riding lesson in Cleethorpes when a dog caused the animal to spin.

Neither the girl or the horse were badly hurt during the incident.

Sophie Brown, of Cottagers Plot Equestrian Centre, said: "I take my dogs on the beach, but I think there needs to be some element of control, possibly a ruling on keeping a dog on a lead while they're on the beach."
