A second horse has been killed and another injured in less than a week following two collisions with cars on Kent's roads.
On Saturday a car hit two horses and a rider at Ninn Lane, Great Chart.
One horse was killed, and the other injured. The rider was taken to William Harvey hospital with back injuries.
A second horse died on Wednesday after colliding with a car on the A20 at Hothfield. The chestnut mare died at the scene. The driver was not injured.
The police also received reports on Wednesday that three horses were loose on the A28 near Ashford.
It is thought they escaped from a field, but were not connected to the horse that was killed.
Kent Police are warning drivers to remain alert when overtaking horses, not to drive close behind them or sound horns, and to drive past slowly, giving them a wide berth.
