Help us protect your access before it is too late! 

 
These statements may seem alarmist but recent¬†posts¬†have¬†shown¬†there is a lot of interest in rights of way in our area.¬†¬†Do you realise that many ‚Äėrights of way‚Äô¬†in England are potentially in danger of being extinguished in 2026?¬†¬†¬†

Countdown to 2026

The BHS is committed to protecting and preserving the equestrian off-road network. However, there‚Äôs only so much we and our volunteers can do ‚Äď we need your help! Working together we can ensure that routes used by horses in the past are accurately recorded and reinstated as safe off-road routes to ride and carriage drive according to the evidence.

To help you to help us save these routes, we’ve created a toolkit detailing how to go about getting them recorded to ensure that they won’t be lost after 2026.

2026: Why is it important?
