Additional Event Information

An approximately 6.5 mile circular route utilising the Five Pits Trail and passing through the Williamthorpe nature reserve. Going is entirely on surfaced trails and as such this is a predominantly walk and trot ride, ideal for nervous or novice combinations. Paths are nicely screened by hedges and there are some pleasing countryside vistas, with some across water. The route is entirely off road, barring a slightly staggered crossing. Worth Noting: The route is off road but there are four road crossings, in some cases across busier roads. These are all direct with the exception of one which requires a short distance over a road bridge on a residential road. Larger vehicles may be seen at crossing points. One road crossing has a horse stile. This can be avoided but the crossing is then slightly staggered. One trail access point is via a narrow path with a flag at the entrance which may upset some horses in breezy weather. The trails are multi-user so expect to meet walkers with dogs or pushchairs, runners and cyclists. There may be livestock beside the route in places. A crossing of a wooden bridge is required. Parking is most suited to trailers and compact horseboxes. Group sizes are limited to 6 plus guide. All riders must have their own BHS gold or equivalent public liability insurance. Under 18s are welcome, but must be accompanied on the ride by an adult rider. Payment of 38.50 per person secures your place. For more info please contact via email, phone or Facebook.
