Kirtlington Sponsored Ride
A ride across 7 miles of beautiful rolling private parkland with old turf so the going is always excellent. You will ride across grass, woods and tracks with no roadwork.
Seven miles with 50 fences plus bonus fences including water – jump all, some or none at all. New fences added & course re-vamped in 2015. The jumps are inviting, some more challenging than others and all avoidable for those who prefer not to jump.
By kind permission of Mr & Mrs J Budgett, Mr & Mrs J Tylor & Mr and Mrs J Nicholson.
A trophy to be won for the most amount of sponsorship money raised.
Proceeds to: Ebony Horse Club, Oxford Children’s Hospital, Thames Valley Air Ambulance and Bicester Hound Club.
