As is the norm now this ride will run subject to strict Covid protocols.
You must be a full/annual member of ILDRA for the 2020/2021 season to enter rides - no day members/non-members allowed.
As well as our usual Pleasure Rides we will be offering both a Bronze Qualifier Competitive Trail Ride (approx. 36km - 22 miles) for CTR members and registered horses only and a pre-novice level competitive ride over a shorter distance (approx. 18km - 11 miles) which will be open to all riding members and their horses. If you're new to endurance or returning after a lay off (who isn't?) then this could be the ideal starter for you...
Entries for Baronscourt will open at 8pm on Wed 19th May and close at midnight on Tue 25th May if the ride is not already filled.
The day will be divided into different rides each with its own time window, so you (and anyone you want to ride with) will need to select the correct ride when entering. CTR riders will be allocated a start time within the 1st hour
You will be sent a specific start time via WhatsApp one day before the ride. Please arrive no more than 20 mins before your start time and leave when your ride is finished
Baronscourt Estate is Lord Abercorn’s magnificent seat….the great number of fine oaks and three long narrow lakes which ornament this place give it an air of great grandeur. While you ride around the estate in spring and early summer you can enjoy the magnificent displays of bluebells, rhododendrons and azaleas. The carefully tended woods along with the lakes create a truly enchanted location in which to ride away from the pressures of modern living.
This ride is not too hilly and suitable for accompanying younger children on foot or bike.
