EU Transport Strategy

While on-site mobility and transport management are the responsibility of urban, local and regional communities, their actions and measures taken are widely influenced by EU targets and EU funding. So it is important to integrate the traffic mode of horse based mobility into the White Papers and strategies of the EU. Only by that it will be visible as an officially accepted transport and mobility mode and will arise in subordinate regulations.

Up to now, only walking and cycling have shown up in official papers as an alternative to be launched in order to cut down the amount of conventionally fueled cars. Horse based mobility is not seen at all up to now and is thus not mentioned in all the concepts for local mobility and infrastructure of cities, communities and rural areas. Without good reason.
