Overhanging branches at junction of NG4 and NG6 SE corner of Bullnose Coppice causing riders to lay down on horse to pass under them followed by too narrow crossing of watercourse (horse can only just cross) followed by badly placed post causing riders to lift foot and stirrup over it to pass safely - incident at weekend when stirrup got caught on post resulting in horse losing footing and leg falling off bridge causing injury to horse and narrowly avoiding potentially catastrophic accident to both horse and rider.
