Ashridge Estate – Protecting Our Roots – Horse Riding Information Session

In September 2023 we publicly launched our ‘Protecting Our Roots’ project and held our first public engagement event, to share our future vision for the Estate and bring to life the urgent need for change. As part of the project we have been reviewing all recreational activity across Ashridge Estate and the varying impacts these have on the special landscape in our care. We know that horse riding is a popular activity at Ashridge and we want to continue welcoming horse riders, however we also need to make some changes to protect the estate and prevent further harm.

The information sharing session is on Wednesday 3 April 2024 with slots at either 5.30pm-6.30pm or 7.00pm-8.00pm. We are also holding another session the week before but this has already sold out.

The session will consist of a short presentation about the changes being made to the permit scheme and some adjustments to our network of permissive bridleways, and include materials to read and a chance to ask questions

Please register via to book your place as spaces are limited. All materials will be available on the ‘Protecting Our Roots’ website ( after the event.
