When an irate tractor driver encountered a TV personality on the road, they were taken aback.
In tense moments, the guy vented his wrath as Cheat Detectives host Liv Shelby kindly urged him to slow down for her three-year-old horse, Selina, who was out for her maiden walk in Manchester.
Selina was said to have cowered in fright since she had never seen a tractor before.
However, when urged to be obedient, its driver did not take it well.
Drivers should be ‘especially careful’ around horses, according to Highway Code regulation 215, and should not exceed 10mph.
The man, whose face has been obscured in the film, storms out of his vehicle on the tight roadway.
‘Do not wave at me, little girl. Get that horse out of the way now,’ he shouted at her.
Liv tried to calm Selina down by bringing her away from the road and the irate motorist.
‘Good girl, it’s alright,’ she told her beloved animal.
The Channel 4 star tried to explain to the tractor owner: ‘She’s never seen a tractor before!’
Her words, however, fell on deaf ears as the man proceeded to yell at her for interfering.
‘Don’t ever tell me how to drive,’ he fired at her.
‘I’ve been coming down here, I respect everybody, and I’m not coming fast.’
‘If you can’t control that, you shouldn’t be allowed to…’, he said, gesturing towards her horse.
‘She’s never seen a tractor!’, Liv reiterated, which the man did not like one bit.
‘Shut up! I’m talking to you, alright?’, he raged. ‘So do not wave like that again at me.’
‘I just said slow down,’ Liv reasoned, only adding to the man’s anger.
‘Slow down! I’ve been driving round here for 50 years, alright?’, the man mocked.
‘Don’t do that again,’ he said, walking away.
Liv shared the astonishing helmet footage with her thousands of social media followers in a bid to ‘spread awareness’.
‘What this man did was illegal, threatening and bullying,’ she added.
‘My poor pony is only three years old, her first time on the road and we were completely bullied to get out of the way.’
Drivers should’slow down’ when they encounter a horse on the road, according to the Highway Code, and should not use their horn or rev their engines.
The code also states that, when it is safe to do so, drivers should ‘pass wide and slow, allowing at least two metres of space’ between them and the horse.
‘Horse riders are often children, so take extra care and remember riders may ride in double file when escorting a young or inexperienced horse or rider,’ it adds.
‘Look out for horse riders’ and horse drivers’ signals and heed a request to slow down or stop. Take great care and treat all horses as a potential hazard; they can be unpredictable, despite the efforts of their rider/driver.
‘Remember there are three brains at work when you pass a horse; the rider’s, the driver’s and the horse’s.’
