Bridleways in Hockley

A friend of mine, experienced in horse riding, has some questions regarding bridleways and bridleway routes in Hockley Woods. “Some route signs have ‘vanished, and you loose the trail”, she told me. That inspired me to put this page together! After all, I’m trying to link cycling clubs and Ramblers, so why not the Hockley Equestrian fraternity!

If you have any comments or news as a Horse Rider, or member of Hockley Equestrian Centre please contact me and I can post useful information here to share with others. If you have any issues or suggestions regarding signs for Bridleways in Hockley Woods please respond here.

    Hi Michelle, Thanks for posting. It doesn’t make complete sense but hopefully fellow horse riders will know what you’re referring to.

    If riders are being asked to get off and walk their horses across the car park, would it not be possible to have 2 Mouting blocks put in. One near the exit of the car par to get back on before going out and one the other side of the car park inside the Woods! I’ve had to use the picnic tables to get on my 17hh chap…I was riding side saddle at the time I might add.
