Plans for a wind turbine development in Northamptonshire are being challenged over claims it could scare horses.
An application for the 60ft (18.3m) high wind turbine at Longbrook Farm, outside Oundle, will be discussed by East Northamptonshire district councillors later.
The turbine would stand in the middle of an open meadow at the farm.
Wendy Rousell, from the British Horse Society, said: “The blades can cast a moving shadow that could spook horses.”
The British Horse Society said it is objecting to the plans because it claims the turbine would be too close to the bridleway network used by riders in the area.
