CANCELLED: BHS Ireland & National Trust Pleasure Ride at Mount Stewart

23 July 2020

This exclusive opportunity is available to BHS Gold Members only and marks the continuing welcome during 2020 of horse riding to Mount Stewart, Portaferry Road, Newtownards, Co Down

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 3 miles of trail, and in 2019 this was extended to approximately 4 miles over a new route.  And in 2020 we will have access to between 6 and 7 miles of trail and depending on the weather will be able to ride around the entire perimeter of the estate.

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

Please complete the booking form with the required information and return to Susan Spratt with payment of £15 per horse and rider.

You may pay by Paypal to

Please Note that this event is not for lead rein riders.
