What's New
hi-viz clothing - new for 2006

Although there is plenty of hi-viz gear around for you and your horse, we have some great new Bridle Rides branded fluorescent Safety Yellow T-shirts and sweatshirts at very reasonable prices. They come in come in unisex adult sizes S, M, L and XL - and the T-shirts are £6.50 each and sweatshirts £13 plus £3.50 postage and packing.

We recommend wearing hi-viz gear when you're bridle riding because as well as being more visible on minor roads, you are easier for other path users to spot on bridleways. It is also much easier for the emergency services to find you in the event of an accident.

You can order them by credit or debit card over the phone on 0121 445 6998. We'll also have some on our tradestand at Your Horse Live in November.
In the photo above right, Bobbie from Bridle Rides is wearing one of the sweatshirts on a cold December day. As it was only 3 degrees above freezing, we think she can be excused for not modelling the T-shirt - which is the same colour, only thinner and with short sleeves!
new Yorkshire Wolds network

We completed the research riding for the new Yorkshire Wolds network on 1st May 2005, which went very well - so we're happy to declare it well and truly open for booking. The photo on the left shows Bobbie and Herbie from Bridle Rides researching a route near Sledmere, which will give you a glimpse of what the area is like.


new, improved beach rides

We now have a permit for Theddlethorpe Beach in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and there's a new ride to Holkham Beach in North West Norfolk which can be incorporated into a 3, 4 and 5-day ride itinerary. Click on the in the text above for the latest details on these networks.

improvements to existing networks

We re-rode the central part of the Wansdyke network in April 2005, adding a brand new one-centre holiday in the process. On the left is a photo of Bobbie and Herbie doing the research riding. Click here to see details of all the rides in the Wansdyke.

In September we completed the research riding for a brand new one-centre holiday near Whitby in the North York Moors. We also added a one-centre holiday in Rutland during the course of the season, plus a second one in the South Cotswolds, which is one of our most popular rides. There are now petal rides available in all 17 networks - and for those of you who prefer one-centre holidays, some even have a choice of 2 different ones!

We also re-vamped some of the rides in the Dorset Downs during the course of 2005 and also created a new 2-day ride in the Valeof Belvoir north of the Rutland Rides (click here for details of all the Rutland Rides).
