The BHS Ride Out Fund

The BHS Ride Out Fund has helped provide multi-user routes across the UK since being launched in 2015. The more we raise, the more projects we can assist with funding, therefore providing more safe off-road access routes for equestrians as well as other road users around the UK. With hundreds of horse and rider injuries on the road reported to the BHS each year, it is more vital than ever to preserve these routes.
