HC Deb 03 December 1958 vol 596 c141W
Mr. Wigg

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will state the circumstances in which horses held on the establishment of a unit for draught purposes may be used for riding and vice versa; and how far under his regulations it is permissible to use draught horses for riding outside the normal hours of work.

Mr. Soames

Horses may be used for recreation, on payment and under certain safeguards, provided that there is no interference with their normal work.
