****Parental consent forms required for all riders under 18 years old*****  click this link to download   Parentalconsentrides

Rides are open to all riders, members and non-members, aged 8 years old and above.  ( * see below for under 8 years old)

Riders aged 8 – 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult (over 18yo) either on foot or mounted. No more than 2 children per adult.  Mounted adults must enter ride as normal and pay appropriate fee.  Adults on foot go free!

Associate members  and non-members may ride unaccompanied after their 14th birthday.

Full members may ride unaccompanied after their 13th birthday.

* Very  occasionally we  are able to offer a  ‘Lead Rein’  class at specially selected social rides for children aged 4 and over, lead from an adult (min 21 years old) on foot. This would be clearly noted on the entry form and is subject to very strict and special conditions.  Absolutely NO lead rein from a mounted adult allowed, whatever the age of the child.

WARNING TAIL RIBBONS – BLUE means a stallion.  GREEN means young or novice horse.  RED means that the horse is nervous or bad tempered (may kick) if other horses come too close.  PLEASE TAKE EXTRA CARE AND CONSIDERATION WHEN YOU SEE A WARNING RIBBON.

WHIPS – none longer than 75 cm, 34 inches, are allowed.


Hatcams can be used at rider’s own risk.

SPURS – not allowed.

****PASSING/OVERTAKING OTHER RIDERS**** – Riders wishing to pass others must first obtain permission from the rider in in front so ALWAYS ASK PERMISSION TO PASS!  Give a reasonable notice, by calling ahead,  and never come up at speed from behind or past another horse.  Please be patient and courteous.  If the rider in front asks you to wait or walk past, respect their wishes.  Pass with due care and attention.  This is even more important if you are riding in a large group and overtaking a single horse or pair.  Especially so if you see a warning tail ribbon too!

If you are about to be overtaken you should clear the way as soon as you are able.

For full rules see our handbook.


REFUNDS FOR SOCIAL RIDES – We understand that sometimes things happen that mean you can’t attend a  ride you’ve entered.  If you let the organiser know ASAP they will do their best to let you have a full refund, however please be aware that in some circumstances this may not be possible.

Full and Associate Members and PC -£12*.   Non Members, inc Supporters – £20*.   

*Higher entry fees at some rides due to expenses incurred for parking and permits.

    Hi Tracy. Sorry to disappoint but we’ve hit a few snags with our proposed Hill Head social ride so have replaced it with Hartington instead. We do hope to have it on our 2019 season calendar.
