L. R. B. A. Rides
"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".
We have an exciting and varied programme of rides each year. To enter each ride, please fill in the Ride Entry Form and send it by post, with a cheque for the ride fee and a stamped addressed envelope for maps and ride instructions, to the organiser on the Rides Programme. In the future, we hope to handle the majority of the ride entries online using BACS payment for entry, when we have found an effective way of coordinating payments to the treasurer with the ride organiser’s entry list. Also we have a PDF covering Ride Information, that is worth reading.
All riders must be members. The ride fees for 2017 are £10 for adults and £5 for under-18s, except that under-18s get their first ride in the year free of charge. Click here to view or print your PDF Membership Form.
We sometimes have an official L.R.B.A. photographer at our rides. Because we cannot display photographs on our Facebook page or Website of riders under-18 without permission from their parent or guardian, we have a form available for ALL our under-18 members on which parents or guardians can either give or withhold their permission. The letter explaining this can be viewed here. To view/print a copy of the PDF form, please click here.
Ride entries should reach the ride organiser at least one week before the ride date. Some rides have limited entry numbers because of restricted availability of parking and entries for these are first come, first served.
PLEASE REMEMBER ALL RIDERS MUST BE AN LRBA MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE IN RIDES.

There is a programme of 10 rides, spread over the two counties and their neighbouring border counties.
Some of the rides are at weekends; others are in mid-week evenings.
This year there will be a special camping weekend at Gretton at the beginning of June.

Bring yourself; your horse; your partner; their horse/bicycle/walking boots and enjoy a weekend riding and exploring the countryside just over the border in Northamptonshire.
There are many routes available on bridleways, permissive paths, quiet country lanes and slightly busier country roads.

On arrival, each rider MUST deposit with the Ride Organiser an “Emergency Envelope” with their name on the front and containing all instructions on getting the horse back home in case of an accident to the rider.
Please reclaim the envelope at the end of the ride. Please bring the horse’s passport and show to the Ride Organiser.
