Yep we always stop and give them heaps of space to get by and wait till they are along way off before restarting again.

Agreed. However they can hear us a lot easier than we hear can hear them....

As Teflon pointed out, we cannot hear them coming and get out of their way all the time.
So at times it's left up to them to get themselves off the track if their able to.
I bet we go past horses all the time and don't even know it.

I have horses and always make a point of riding around them so they are ok with bikes.
In saying that sometimes they still get spooked.

caught out yesterday.. usually i do stop but I meet them on a blind corner at speed. She was not a happy camper! I hammered the brakes but did not come to a complete stop. No doubt she had a few words to say about me zoombie. lesson learned.

I always stop and a lot of the time even take my helmet off ( coz that can spook em too )
And have been given a barrage of abuse while doing the right thing by a couple aswell :o
I can,t see why there allowed in the bush as there clearly un roadworthy , no brakes or kill switch , no horn and the only time they have a brain is when someones sitting on there back :D :D :D
