Alice Sergison, 28, from Fakenham, was with Delilah by Kingsway garage on Hempton Road in the town when the woman pulled away sounding her horn at them.

Miss Sergison said she was walking alongside her daughter, teaching her to ‘kick on’ as she shared her passion for horse riding with her child.

When the incident happened on September 5, Miss Sergison said she was on the verge next to the road.

She said: “I was gobsmacked, I didn’t know what to do. It is awful. It only takes a split second to spook them and my little girl could have come off.
