Welfare and Care
Our team works hard to defend, extend and promote safe, easily accessible off-road riding for everyone, but we could not do this without the help of our dedicated local Access and Bridleways Officers.
Find your local Access officer
Whether you want the challenge of an epic long-distance ride, a route for your fundraising fun ride, a holiday on horseback, or just a change of scenery closer to home, we can help you find somewhere safe to ride.
Frequently asked questions

Provide localised advice, support and assistance through our network of dedicated Access Officers
We know there’s nothing better than riding out with friends, or just enjoying the company of your horse in the open air.
We are committed to defending and increasing such opportunities by recording legal rights, preserving and reinstating routes, and creating new rights for every rider and carriage driver.
