The Bedford Hack is our signature ride, lasting around 2 hours, on the members only BRLA bridle trails. These beautifully maintained trails cover over 100 linear miles of historic riding terrain including water crossings, woodlands, open fields and both natural and man-made jumps placed throughout.
If you have spent most of your riding career in an arena, testing your skills in the open space can be both exhilarating and intimidating. This ride offers a rare opportunity to gallop across fields and immerse yourself in natures true beauty on horses that are trained for this environment and in a small and accommodating group. All jumps are optional and can be avoided.
Experience: Confident canter rider, comfortable in half seat, can be suitable for first open space ride if you are an experienced indoor rider, all jumping is optional.
