Campaign calls for better regulation of Bonfire Night
Friday 9th November 2012, 8:30AM GMT.
A RIDING school owner believes firework displays should be restricted to Bonfire Night alone.
Jenny Froome, of La Carriere Stables, was speaking following the launch of a petition and Facebook campaign calling for tighter regulations.
She said displays should be held on 5 November, no matter what day it fell on.
‘Animals definitely react to them,’ she said.
She had not experienced many problems with the 32 ponies at her school but believed that was because many were kept outside and could see the fireworks and were therefore not as scared.
‘I have had a dog that has been terrified,’ she said, however.
