Event Information

RA – Salisbury Plain escorted ride – Woodford Valley

The rides are organised by the Masters of the Royal Artillery Hunt and land access has been granted with the kind permission of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and local landowners.


Escorted rides on Salisbury Plain and surrounding land

A series of four escorted rides over four weekends offer riders the rare chance to ride over the beautiful expanse of Salisbury Plain and surrounding private land.

Starting on Saturday 3 April and the following three Saturdays, there are different timing options and ride paces in order to cater for the speedy thruster, happy hacker or children on lead reins. The rides don’t include jumping. Each ride will take about two hours.


Location – Woodford Valley, near Amesbury

The starting point is Springbottom Farm in the Woodford Valley. This is south of the A303 near Amesbury (WhatThreeWords https://what3words.com reference swarm.tabs.pizzeria). The ride will be over private farmland in the beautiful Woodford Valley. Parking for trailers and horse boxes will be signposted and stewarded. More details will be provided nearer the date.




The rides will be COVID-19 secure, with strict adherence to social distancing guidelines. To that end, a maximum of five people are permitted on each time slot, plus the escort.


Refreshments will be available.

Looking ahead

The next escorted rides will be:

  • Saturday 17 April – from 10am, start location TBC, a circular route on Salisbury Plain
  • Saturday 24 April – from 10am, start location TBC, a circular route on Salisbury Plain
