RIDE DETAILS:  The ride is entirely in Thoresby estate this year.Generally the terrain is fairly flat to gently rolling.  It is an easy ride and route. It looks a bit complicated on the map but it will be easy to follow. Mostly forestry tracks, some lovely grassy tracks, one long track surfaced with red shale, some old tarmacked roads in the forest (not used as public roads). These can be slippery in places . If your horse is barefoot, may be advisable to use boots. Please note with the exception of Freeboard Lane (red shale track) all parts of the route are private and not accessible normally.

There are two road crossings on the route out and back, which will be stewarded.
