Additional Event Information
This 8.5 mile history rich route sets out on bridleways where you could at one time have come across infamous highwayman, Black Harry. Passing through Stoney Middleton the route winds via byways and back lanes into the village of Eyam, made famous for the sacrifice the inhabitants made during the Plague outbreak in 1665. Take in some of the poignant grave sites as well as the pretty village. The majority of this route is on surfaced tracks but limited canter opportunities are possible, ground conditions permitting. In the event grass sections are too wet, a detour will be made to remain on surface, extending distance to 10 miles.
Sections of the route are steep, both up and down so both you and your horse will require a reasonable level of fitness.
Going can be stony across much of the route with some rocky and uneven sections.
Some roadwork is necessary, mainly on quiet lanes but there are two direct crossings of an A road.
Bridleways crossing grassland may be populated with livestock.
There are two Horse Stiles with a pair of sleeper sized rails to step over.
All riders must have their own Public liability insurance and all under 18s must be accompanied on the ride by an adult. Group sizes are limited to 6+guide.
