Flitch Way Friday (Full)Great Notley Country Park, Great Notley, Essex CM77 7FS 28/02/2020

Completed by 30 of the 52 people who entered. It was a horrible day for riders and marshals but at least horses got exercised and some mad riders said that they did actually enjoy the ride 

A Friday ride starting from Great Notley Country Park. We ride to Little Dunmow along the hard surfaced track (no mud!) of a disused railway called the Flitch Way, do a loop at the end; then ride back to Notley. 13 miles in total  (but you could turn around at any time on the Flitch Way section to make it shorter).  Timeslots from 10.30am to allow the kids to get to school first.

Normal Great Notley Country Park parking fees will apply. 

Please note that there is a long bridleway bridge over the A120 on the route. It is not as scary as it sounds as the bridge is at an angle to the road so the horses do not particularly see the traffic. I took my youngster over it when I first got him and he was fine. There are mounting blocks either side for those less brave.

Flu Vaccination requirements for this ride are that all horses attending must be up to date with their annual flu injections (ie.the last booster is no more than a year old). Random checks may be made so please remember to bring along your horse passport.
