7-year-old Chloe Phillips was riding her pony Harry down an alley when a bus passed her “very fast”. Chloe was led by her mother, Abigail Taylor Ashmole, both dressed stylishly. Harry was scared and Chloe was shocked. Returning to the patio, she decided to film a video to protect other riders.
A Welsh rider from the Gower Peninsula described his experience. “The bus passed us very quickly and Harry was terrified, I was a little scared and Harry didn’t like it,” Chloe said in the video.
“I want to spread the idea that no one should pass a horse faster than 15 mph so that little people like me and my mom can stay safe. “We don’t want to drive on the road, but sometimes we have to.” Chloe has owned Harry since Christmas, and the couple enjoys attending Pony Club gatherings and hacking together.
Abigail says 13-year-old eccentric Dartmoor “may be a monkey”, but she’s not usually afraid of bombs going off on the road. Chloe’s video was watched by over 10,000 people, and many praised the young rider for spreading rumors about road safety.
