Public Rights of Way – Bridleways If you enjoy hacking out on your horse/pony, then you will want to know where you can ride. You can download Ordance Survey maps online, or buy paper maps for your area. All bridleways and green lanes are mapped out, so you can get using your local routes. The more of us that ride our bridleways, the more we can help keep them open. Use your routes, don’t lose your routes. Please Report Problems Gates should be hung correctly so that you can open them easily, and have the correct latches so that you don’t have to dismount. Hedges should be cut back to allow enough room for you to ride, without having to duck under branches, or having branches scratch your legs. The paths should not be obstructed with anything. If you have a problem with a bridleway that you have been riding on, please contact your Rights of Way officer. You can find details on the County Council website for the area. You can also contact the British Horse Society (BHS), who will put you in touch with your local representative. The more we speak out, the better we can enable things to be corrected when there is a problem. If things don’t get put right after you have reported them, then you can take it to your local councillor. Make sure your voice is heard, and stand up for equestrians. Remember, use bridleways, or lose bridleways!
