Karen Burch is the BHS Access Officer for Carmarthenshire. Karen
has set up the Carmarthenshire Riders Group which is continuing
the work of the old Carmarthenshire Bridleways Action Group, but
also approaching the decision makers in both local and National
Government to open the many byways and unsurfaced highways that
are currently not available to us.
The Carmarthenshire Riders Group aims to work with other
partners to create safe on and off road access for horse riders
and organises fun rides to raise funds to contribute towards
these improvements. We also lobby local and national government
for better access and to raise issues that affect horse riders,
giving horse riders a voice alongside walkers and cyclists. We
run charity rides for the charities close to the hearts of our
members in order to increase awareness, our membership numbers,
and to give us a stronger voice when lobbying for better access
for riders throughout Carmarthenshire.
riding Open available rights of way Highlight equestrian numbers
and the contribution made to the Welsh Economy Promote the need
for consideration in local government planning/development
Establish satellite/local groups to ensure all riders benefit
from the group. Objectives Lobby decision makers for funding to
improve the bridleways, byways and unsurfaced highways for safe
off road riding. Survey all available routes and provide
statistics to support funding applications.
Membership of the
CRG will be £5 annually, running from JANUARY 1st. Membership
forms are available by clicking the JOIN

Help us -
To get a good
network of bridleways requires a great deal of time and work by
us, the council, landowners and YOU. If you want to ride safely
we need information about routes that you have ridden or have
heard of. If possible take a walk on the route and take some
photos. Get other riders, past or present, to write in as well.
The more support we have, the easier it is to help you.
If you have a ride you enjoy
click Your Rides to email it to us.
