LRBA exists to improve, extend and maintain the wonderful network of bridleways in the two Shire counties of Leicestershire and Rutland and their immediate surroundings. At LRBA we have a splendid programme of LRBA Rides, for which you have to be a member. The annual cost is only £10 and all you have to do is to send in the Membership Form. If you have a problem with a bridleway or byway, please go to the FAQ's section to see how to report it.
"We have been organising a varied programme of rides on local bridleways and quiet country roads for the past 25 years. Recently attendance has dropped and in 2017 we had to cancel 3 of our 10 rides because the number of entrants wasn’t enough to make the ride viable. We therefore want to find out what you think the reasons might be and whether there are changes that would encourage you to take part in more rides. We would be grateful if you would take five minutes to respond to the Questionnaire. A gift of free or refunded annual membership (worth £10) will go to an entrant drawn at random on 12th January 2018".
The rides cost £10 (£5 for under 18s); the Ride Entry Form should be sent to the individual ride organiser listed on the Rides Programme. We have area meetings twice a year in the 7 areas across the two counties, at which we discuss bridleway matters. The dates and locations of the next set of meetings can be seen in Area Meetings. The News section gives information on bridleway closures and problems as well as events. The latest issue of our Newsletter can also be found in the news section and shows how active we are in trying to improve the network of riding routes in our region.
Day to day updates are to be found on our Facebook page, so click on the logo below to catch up on our latest news and photographs. This was started in October 2016 by two Administrators - Lynne Pass and Mary Holland and is currently building up its membership. It’s available for LRBA members to post information about local Bridleway problems and hazards so that it is immediately available to warn local riders. LRBA members can post and update information relevant to equestrians. We can publicise and enhance details of LRBA events and those of other local equestrian organisations. Adverts are not permitted. If you have other information about events, bridleway problems or related matters, please feel free to contact a member of the committee.
HELP: The Pennine bridleway is 205 miles long and was opened in 2012, but the local authority is being stubborn about tacking a dangerous 5 mile stretch on a busy road. Please sign the petition by clicking here.
You should find all the information you need in the various sections of this website; but if you feel something is missing and there is more you feel we need to include, then please get in touch with us at email@example.com. We'd love to hear from you, do come and visit us again soon and we hope to see you at one of our events.
