Additional Event Information
Approximately 8 miles setting out from Friden, this is a stunning peak district route offering far reaching views and unrivalled peace and tranquillity. Sections of the route are moderately challenging with some rocky going up Gratton Dale but it is more than worth the effort for the reward of cantering up Long Dale, if all riders are happy to do so. A large part of the ride is open grassland so there are a number of good canter opportunities throughout.
A small amount of roadwork is necessary to connect between bridleways, mainly on small country lanes.
Open grassland may contain livestock including sheep and cattle which we will have to pass through.
Sections of the route are narrow and in places rocky with restricted head room due to overgrowth. Long sleeved garments are suggested.
There are some narrow gateways along the route.
Occasionally Gratton Dale can become flooded after heavy rain.
All riders must have their own BHS Gold or equivalent Public Liability Insurance. Under 18s must be accompanied on the ride by an adult. Group size is limited to 6+guide.
Payment of £35 per person secures your place on the ride. Contact via email, Facebook or phone for more info. Bookings can be made using the following link:
