Countdown to 2026

The BHS is committed to protecting and preserving the equestrian off-road network. However, there’s only so much we and our volunteers can do – 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?
