• You go onto land to exercise a Right of Way - not to exercise your horse all over the farmer's fields. Keep to the designated line of the route.
• Care for the land.
• Animals thrive best in a calm environment. Do not disturb stock any more than you have to. Go slowly.
• Close any gate you open - even if you have to get off to do so.
• Ride within your 'stopping distance'. Other riders, walkers or cyclists may be just round the next bend.
• Horses are unpredictable. Give other users as much room as you can.
• Do not 'bomb' past other riders. Ask if it's OK to pass, then go slowly until you're a good way ahead.
• Do not damage timber or hedgerows by jumping.
• Be courteous. Acknowledge courtesy. Any bad behaviour gives a bad impression of ALL riders.
• What your horse drops, fertilises. What you drop, pollutes. Take your litter home.
We also have a Bridleway Guidelines PDF which may be of interest.
