Saddle up and explore the scenic route...


We dedicate May to the UK’s equestrian routes; 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. All while raising money for the BHS Paths for Communities Fund to help us to do more in your local area!

2018 will see the return of the incredibly popular National Trust rides, which offer riders the chance to saddle up and explore beautiful scenic views over five National Trust estates, with at least one in each nation.
