The BHS is excited to launch this year’s Ride Out UK, the annual campaign celebrating and raising awareness of the important mission to protect and improve safe off-road routes for horses and riders across the UK.
Access to the great outdoors has been more important than ever throughout the last year. Kicking off from May 1st until the end of October, the BHS is encouraging people to explore their local area and take part in the campaign however they can, raising crucial funds for the BHS Ride Out Fund.
There are several ways to get involved, through organised rides or a Rideathon, a sponsored hacking challenge.
The Rideathon challenges people to ride 70km and raise £70 (or more) for The BHS Ride Out Fund. But it’s not just for horse riders. Participants can also complete the challenge on foot, bike or horse and will all receive a BHS Ride Out UK 2021 rosette and personalised certificate for their contribution. For more information on how to take part in the Rideathon challenge, visit the website:
There are also many local organised rides and events coming up over the next 6 months, so keep an eye out as they are announced here:
The BHS Ride Out Fund has provided funding for projects which open and/or enable safe off-road equestrian routes throughout the UK since 2015. As a charity, the more funds that are raised, the more projects can be assisted to improve the lives of equestrians and other users around the UK.
