The landowner had an aggressive dog that it was asked to keep away from the bridleway as it chased horses making it distressful for horse and rider. The landowner has now actively put sheep hurdles up across the bridle way to deter horse riders and walkers going through the wood up to Priors Marston. There is no livestock in the field that would warrant shutting theses sheep hurdles and tying them up and until the dog incident these hurdles are only ever shut if there are sheep around which was for a couple of weeks a year. It has been since the dog incident (the day after),. Having tied sheep hurdles makes it increasingly difficult for riders to pass through. If he wants it shut perhaps a proper bridle gate could be put in or he could stop obstructing public rights of way.
