Do you dream of riding round Badminton but know you’ll never have the skill or bravery to do so?

Then the Badminton Ride on Sunday 26 September could be just the thing.

This sponsored ride will take place in the surroundings of the Badminton Estate, where the world-famous four-star horse trials take place each year.

The ride will be about 10 miles long with 40 or more optional fences.

The entry fee is £20 (£15 for riders aged 14 years and under) paid prior to 18 September, or £25 (£20 for children) on the day.

This year’s Badminton Ride is in aid of Help for Heroes, the charity that helps care for wounded soldiers, in particular those returning from the current conflict in Afghanistan.
