Long Lane, Luckwell Bridge
Following recent drainage works by Highways on this unclassified road at Luckwell Bridge, horse riders found that the drainage grids that spanned the whole width of this well-used track were unsafe for horses, especially as the grids were set in concrete [albeit well-grooved] on a steep slope leading towards fast-moving traffic on the road below.
Lobbying by many local riders has persuaded Highways to provide a compromise by covering one of the grids with thick rubber matting, thus returning this lane to a useable ridden track. See photos below.
Grid plus MAT
This year we have five people offering escorted rides throughout the spring and summer, and we are planning six actual rides. A list of these [with approximate dates] can be found on the 'Events' page.
Please note that the 'old' riding hat standard of EN1384 is no longer acceptable, and all riders taking part in Bridleways Association activities must wear a hat to the new standard which is: BSEN1384 PLUS PAS015
