Because the number of entries is too low to make the ride viable, as the date clashes with Rockingham Horse Trials, we have postponed the Escorted Groups to the evening of Thursday 14th July from 6pm (phone organiser on 0116 2791147or 07743 198290 between 7 & 9 pm on Monday 11 July for times) and the riders using map & instructions to the morning of Saturday 16th July, starting between 9am and 11am. Existing entrants have been contacted by the ride organiser; new entrants, please see the link to the “Rides Programme” on the LRBA Rides Page under the rides tab to book. Entries to email@example.com. See LRBA Rides page under Rides tab for payment details and special instructions for filling in the entry form.
Your Picnic Leftovers Could Kill Horses!
Be Horse Aware - Thank you for not feeding other people's horses. Please click here to view a YouTube video explaing how. The British Horse Society are urging members of the public to not feed horses without the owner’s permission. Although frequently motivated by kindness, feeding unknown horses can result in horrifying unintended consequences by making the horse extremely ill - in some cases horses have died. Watch as we take you through the real-life emotion and heart ache that has sadly been a reality for so many horse owners and highlights the real dangers of feeding horses.
New Highway Code
A new Highway Code comes in force on Saturday 29th January 2022. Among other things, it gives priority to vulnerable road users and horse-riders are specifically mentioned! For more information and links please visit our News page.

The LRBA exists to improve, extend and maintain the wonderful network of bridleways in the two Shire counties of Leicestershire and Rutland and their immediate surroundings. At LRBA we have a splendid programme of LRBA Rides, for which you have to be a member. For other Non LRBA Rides please click here. The annual cost is only £10 and all you have to do is to send in the Membership Form.
The rides cost £15 (£5 for under 18s); the Ride Entry Form should be sent to the individual ride organiser listed on the Rides Programme. Our Networks Officer is replacing the Face-to-Face Area Meetings which had to be dropped under Covid-19 rules, with Zoom meetings on particular themes for riders across the region rather than by areas. More details to follow. The News section gives information on bridleway closures and problems as well as events. The latest issue of our Newsletter can also be found in the news section and shows how active we are in trying to improve the network of riding routes in our region.
Day to day updates are to be found on our Facebook page. Click on the logo below to catch up on our latest news and photographs. LRBA members can send information about local Bridleway problems and hazards to firstname.lastname@example.org to be immediately available to warn local riders. We can publicise and enhance details of LRBA events and those of other local equestrian organisations. Adverts are not permitted.
