Ride Out UK Month

Ride Out UK 

Kindly sponsored by Thorowgood

Saddle up and explore the scenic route...

Ride Out UK Month 2018 is kindly sponsored by Thorowgood and it's all about raising awareness of off-road riding and applauding the fantastic efforts of the 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!
