Exclusive BHS Ireland and National Trust Pleasure Rides BHS Ride Out UK 2019

15 Aug 2019

This exclusive opportunity is available to BHS Gold Members only and marks the continuing welcome during 2019 of horse riding to Mount Stewart, Portaferry Road, Newtownards, Co Down. 

The dates and times are as follows:

  • Friday 10 May 6.30pm to 9pm
  • Tuesday 25 June 6.30pm to 9pm
  • Thursday 18 July 6.30pm to 9pm
  • Thursday 15 August 5.30pm to 8pm

The Londonderry family of Mount Stewart always had horses and ponies and they rode through the grounds at Mount Stewart on trails that were made for just that purpose. The National Trust is working to recover and renovate access to the estate by uncovering and renovating existing paths. In 2017 and 2018 we had access to approximately three miles of trail, and in 2019 we will hopefully have access to an additional mileage.

Pre-booking is essential with a maximum attendance number of 40 and pre-organised departure times.  There is a strict code of conduct for this event, which is below.
