The British Horse Society is hosting its annual Access Conference on Saturday 17 October, with an exciting schedule packed full of excellent speakers who will be sharing their experiences across various areas of access.
The day will consist of informative talks from knowledgeable speakers on surfacing, the gates trial, 2026 and volunteering for access
Plus, we’ll be holding breakout sessions throughout the day – so you can tailor make your own Access Conference to suit your particular interests! There will be two sessions; the first in the morning and a further session in the afternoon, with four interesting topics to choose from:
2026 Restoring the Record - Useful online resources and using them - Dr Phil Wadey
2026 Restoring the Record - noticing potential routes and the value of different documentary evidence - Sarah Bucks
The Ridemaps Project - Digital Mapping using Memory Map and the Web for recording Rides and Unrecorded Routes - Adrian Bigg
'Access Issues' – Your opportunity to raise your access issues with Mark Weston, BHS Director of Access and Geri Coop, Special Projects Officer
To enable you to get the most out of the sessions, each is limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
