A horse being led by cyclist. Riding into the village of Loon, near Assen in the Netherlands on the wonderful smooth and wide cycle path usually used by commuters, shoppers, school run kids, skaters, cycle tourers and of course racers.

The village that this 3 metre wide cycle path leads to has just 280 residents. Having such a good quality route means that parents have no doubts about allowing their children to cycle to secondary schools in Assen, 6 km away.

Cycle facilities of this quality lend themselves to all kinds of uses including in this instance the walking of horses. Dutch horses are familiar with, and not spooked by, bicycles.

See #12365 for a dog being led by bike (this is much more common than leading a horse) or #20486 for a video showing the cycle path at the other end of this village.
