|Description||With Kind Permission of Milton Keynes Parks Trust.
Largely through parkland, round lakes and fields along purpose built, surfaced horse trails and bridle ways with a very small amount of road work on quiet estate roads. This ride is uniquely urban in its venue and, as such, riders will need to be aware of footpaths crossing the horse trails at regular intervals. It offers a fabulous training environment and is perfect for the barefoot horse. Please be aware that the 81k/41k/20k and 13k routes all pass through an approx. 2km stretch of cow fields with a series of 7 horse gates and possibly cows. We will of course seek to steward these but if you wish to avoid them then you are advised to choose another class. Please note that none of the PR routes will pass the famous concrete cows! Special awards in lots of classes - see notes and ride website for details.
