Here's where you'll find ideas for routes to enjoy with your horse and friends. Each leaflet has a map and detailed directions, making route-finding easy. We also include information on where to park and - where possible - to find refreshments during or after your ride. We update the leaflets when we can, either through our own route-checking or when people 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 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 taking an Ordnance Survey map (all our routes advise on the correct one), wearing a helmet to current safety standards and hi-viz clothing, and holding appropriate insurance for you and your horse.
