Horses are as bad as Cats...

you are NOT in control, it's simply letting you think that for a while.

Just a quick search of the web..

Australian Traffic Codes Website:
According to Australian Traffic Codes, the owner of the livestock is liable for damage caused by restrained or unrestrained livestock unless it is found that the driver was operating in an unsafe manner.

Equine Insurance Website:
personal horse owners liability insurance. This type of equine insurance will cover up to five horses and the coverage ranges from $300K to $1,000,000 with very affordable premiums. Should you end up being sued for any reason in conjunction to your horse(s), personal horse owners insurance will cover you. This type of insurance will also cover you if you have to make payments because your horse has caused damage to someone else's property or injure someone.
Liability insurance will keep you covered should a horse or someone riding a horse cause any damage to another person or property.

UK Animals Act:

Section 2(1) made an owner of a dangerous animal strictly liable for damage caused by it even where the owner had taken every care to avoid the damage. That s understandable where you are considering the likes of a lion or tiger. But horses are not a dangerous species .

So Section 2(2) provides: ''(2) Where damage is caused by an animal which does not belong to a dangerous species, a keeper of the animal is liable for the damage, except as otherwise provided by this Act, if

(a) the damage is of a kind which the animal, unless restrained, was likely to cause or which, if caused by the animal, was likely to be severe; and
(b) the likelihood of the damage or of its being severe was due to characteristics of the animal which are not normally found in animals of the same species or are not normally so found except at particular times or in particular circumstances; and
(c) those characteristics were known to that keeper ''
