For many years the National Trust have allowed permit holders to ride paths on land at the rear of what was Shana Riding School and between Bradenham Woods Lane and Smalldean Lane.  There is also one path on the other side of Bradenham Woods Lane which links in with the existing public bridleway and from these into National Trust permissive paths for riders. 

This facility is open to all local riders, Naphill Riding Club is involved as we do the paperwork for the National Trust and they generously allow us to keep half of the income raised.

 The fee is. £10 for an individual and £20 for a family.

Permits run from 1 March to 29 February each year.

If you would like to ride the trails, please complete the application form below and post it with your cheque to the address on the form. You will be asked to sign an agreement, allocated a permit number and provided with a map of the permitted tracks. A renewal will be emailed to you each year. Once membership/renewal is complete we provide the local National Trust warden with details of permit holders. We also ask permit holders themselves to help ensure that all users do have a current permit.

We are very lucky to have this facility at such a low price, so even if you only ride the paths once a year, please be fair and pay for a permit. It is also essential that you keep to the paths and do not stray onto footpaths. The bridle paths are shared with walkers so please give way and take care.
