  • The slopes are very slippy. The owner has cleared one slope but the other is impossible to go down on a horse and needs clearing for access.

    Both ideally need to be rerouted as the slopes are too slippery amd steep for horses

  • As the Land Owner I challenged 2 horse riders riding off of the established bridleway. I was informed that the riders had reported an issue with the bridleway, report number 2981859. The riders also informed me that Northants Council advised that they could ride off of the bridleway; the safest route. Having spent time since purchasing the land improving the bridleway this is somewhat disappointing. Is it possible to speak with the Council Officer investigating?
