Extremely smooth and slippery road surface in various places between Braunston and Brooke and Braunston

The road surface is extremely smooth in places between Braunston/Brooke/Braunston, approx 3 mile circuit. It is now downright dangerous in places when I am riding horses around the block as they simply can not stand up. I have had two horses now slip right over in different places. thankfully neither horse nor rider was seriously injured but it is only a matter of time before someone does get hurt. Save for the Oakham to Ridlington section, none of the circuit is treated in wintery conditions and the smooth surface is also a danger for motorists with so little slip resistance now. I have attached a plan with the worst spots marked and would ask that you give serious consideration to addressing the problem please
