Ride Out UK
Help us raise money to restore your equestrian routes by saddling up this year, from May – October.
If you love to hack, ride your bike, or enjoy spending quality time with your horse, then Ride Out UK is for you! The money raised will go towards restoring our bridleways and multi-user routes. There’s plenty of ways you can get involved from taking part in our hacking challenge to attending an organised ride. Your support will help every UK horse and rider have a safe place to ride off-road.
Take in the serene beauty of National Trust estates on horseback, to an urban picnic or pleasure ride. Get involved in local organised events in your area.
Ready for a new 2019 challenge? Can you hack at least 70km over 6-months and raise a minimum of £70 to restore off road routes?
Make a donation online to our BHS Paths for Communities Fund. Your donations make a difference to the world of equestrian access.

"Accessing funding was vital for our resurfacing project on Whitmoor Common. The route was treacherous and at times completely submerged, and with riding areas so limited here we desperately needed a change. It’s an absolute joy to ride now and it’s made such a difference to the community. Thank you so much to everyone raising money for the Paths for Communities Fund!”
Philippa Wright, Chair of Worplesdon and District Bridleways Association
