Our dedicated team of more than 280 local volunteer Access and Bridleway Officers work hard to defend, extend and promote safe, easily accessible off-road riding for everyone.

Routes to ride

Over 100 affiliated Equestrian Access Groups around the UK help us to promote equestrian access at a grass-roots level, monitoring local equestrian rights of way and working alongside local authorities and other groups to campaign for improved off-road riding.

Ride Out UK Month - May 2018

Happy rider out hacking

Explore the scenic route

#RideOutUK Month is all about raising awareness of off-road riding and celebrating BHS volunteers, local authorities and organisations who protect and restore multi-user routes across the UK.

This May, why not saddle up, enjoy a day out with your horse and raise money for the BHS Paths for Communities Fund to help us to do more in your local area!

What you can do...

With your help we can do more to promote and develop safe, easily accessible off-road riding for everyone.

  • Fundraise - the Paths for Communities Fund was established to provide new routes to ride in your area. Please help us increase the creation of these routes by fundraising or donating.
  • Join a group – Equestrian Access Groups are a fun, sociable way to promote and develop access in your area.
  • Volunteer - if you believe that equestrians should have increased access to more, and better bridleways, why not become a district, county or regional Access Officer?
