About Leicestershire and Rutland Bridleways Association (LRBA)
Leicestershire and Rutland Bridleways Association (LRBA) aims:
- To preserve and improve and where possible extend the Counties' bridleways and byways
- To work towards the establishment and publicising of a network of bridleways, byways, tracks and quiet roads, including permissive routes, that will enable horses to be ridden (and driven wherever possible) away from traffic.
- To endeavour to ensure that the needs of the horse and rider are considered in any planning approvals for new roads, housing or other developments, country parks or recreational provision.
- To encourage and educate riders in the responsible use of the network so that the Counties' rights of way, recreational and permissive routes, and the land they pass over are respected, and also to promote good road safety practice.
LRBA hold area meetings (recently virtual) to consider and discuss issues of access to bridleways, work to ensure that bridleways are correctly shown on definitive maps, consider development plans with regard to implications for riders and the potential to gain new bridleways.
LRBA have run first aid and map reading training events and organise a programme of pleasure rides.
