Knowing the laws and acts of Rights of Way on UK roads and highways is important for all horse owners and riders. Access training days are a great way of learning all about the laws and issues surrounding your rights to ride and carriage drive. This is a Level Two training day.
There are three levels of courses available. They are:
Level One: Basic Highway Law and Local Plans
Level Two: User Evidence, Documentary Evidence, Definitive Maps and Wider Access
Level Three: Advanced Highway Law. Open to all, though it is designed as a continuation of Level Two
About Rights of Way training
Training is essential for BHS Access and Bridleways Officers, but is open to anyone wishing to improve or extend safe off route access for equestrians in their local area.
Training costs £5 for BHS Access and Bridleway Officers, members of The British Horse Society, BHS Equestrian Access Groups and British Riding Clubs. In 2015 this offer is also extended to members of The British Driving Society.
Training costs £10 for all others wishing to attend, and additional donations to assist with our charitable work to defend, extend and promote safe off-road equestrian access are gratefully received.
As a guide, most Rights of Way training days start with coffee and sign-in at 9:30am and usually run until about 4pm. Lunch is provided – please advise us of any dietary requirements when you book online or on your booking form. You’ll also receive a training pack with course notes to take home for future reference.
Directions and a programme of events will be sent to you by email or post when we receive your payment.
