A series of new guides for horse riding routes in the northern part of the Lincolnshire Wolds have been unveiled
The guides are expected to encourage locals and visitors from across the UK to saddle up to experience the delights of the north east corner of Lincolnshire.
Ranging from seven to 19 mile routes, the maps have been created by local British Horse Society (BHS) member John Presgrave.
With both local riders and those from further afield using the guides, it should help benefit local businesses, including food and drink outlets, accommodation providers, and possibly saddleries and blacksmiths.
John Presgrave said: “As with similar projects in Devon and North Yorkshire, I hope the bespoke, colourful and concise nature of the guides and maps will create an enjoyable riding experience for locals and visitors alike. This project also gives local businesses an opportunity to tap into this equestrian pursuit and unlock the beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds for a wider audience.”
Heather Clatworthy, Senior Executive at The British Horse Society, said: "Whether you wish to find somewhere new to explore, or if you and friends are on holiday in The Wolds with your horse, having access to tried and tested circular routes with guides is invaluable.
“Many equestrians through lack of experience or from past bad experience on busy and dangerous roads are too scared to explore off road and miss out on so much with their horse.
“I am confident this guide will encourage the equestrians of Lincolnshire to explore different routes, will attract people into the area, and potentially help raise awareness of the great work The British Horse Society do to protect and extend safe off road access for equestrians.”
