Thanks to all those who made donations after our Ride Out UK 2017 hack, we were able to donate £110 to the BHS Paths for Communities fund. Fantastic result everyone!

To celebrate BHS Ride Out UK month and to highlight one of our important local bridleways, we will be having a hack for members and their families and friends to Fencott and Murcott bridleway 17, which runs between Ragnalls Lane, Horton-cum-Studley, and Manor Farm, Murcott, on Sunday 28th May between 9am and 12 noon. Start from your yards and make your way to the bridleway (or include the path in a longer hack). There will be some goodies for the participants! Contact us for more information or to join Otmoor Riding Group!
Don’t forget that next month is the British Horse Society (BHS) Ride Out UK month! A good time to celebrate and raise awareness of your local off-road riding! It’s a great excuse for enjoying a hack. Or take part in a BHS event and help raise money to help protect and improve equestrian access across the UK!
