Inviting stretch of bridleway
A ride with friends in the sun
 
Here's where you'll find lots of ideas for routes to enjoy with your horse and friends: we've selected the most enjoyable routes we know across Yorkshire to share with you. Each leaflet has a map and detailed route directions, making route-finding easy. We also include information on where you can park and - where possible - find refreshments during or after the ride. We update the leaflets when we can, either through our own route-checking or when people who've tried them let us know of changes. 
 
Before you set off, please read the small print: 
While our routes have been carefully checked and are on public rights-of-way, Ride Yorkshire is not responsible for any changes since we last checked them or for adverse weather conditions. By selecting and following these routes, you agree that it is your decision to use them and that you ride them at your own risk and accept responsibility for yourself and your horse. We strongly recommend that you take an Ordnance Survey map as a back-up (all our routes advise on the correct one), wear a helmet to current safety standards and hi-viz clothing, and hold appropriate insurance for you and your horse.
