NEW FOR 2018 - (optional) FANCY DRESS CHALLENGE Our annual Charity Ride is held in aid of Gaddesden Place RDA (Riding for the Disabled), with all profits from the day donated to the charity. However, it costs around £80,000 a year to keep this remarkable centre open, and we would like to see if we can at least double the amount raised by riders in 2018. So...why not take on an extra challenge in 2018 and ride the course in fancy dress, asking friends, family and colleagues for sponsorship to make the task more worthwhile? After all, there'll be a professional photographer on hand to record that you actually did it! We'll be offering a prize for the most creative costume and we're sure a good contingent of riders won't disappoint (participants last year, who weren't even invited to come in fancy dress, still turned up as minions and witches, so we're excited about what - or who - might appear in 2018). Fancy dress not your thing? Then let us know about your own challenge. It could be taking on all 30 jumps if you're not that keen on fences. Or simply doing the course for a good cause could be enough. Extra sponsorship for the day is entirely optional; by taking part in the event you're still supporting the charity. However, if the idea appeals, the Centre has a special My Donate page (www.mydonate.bt.com/events/gaddesdencharityride/450513), which riders can link to in order to set up their own sponsorship pages. (Visit www.gaddesdenplacerda.org.uk for full information on the work of Gaddesden Place RDA.) Good luck! GADDESDEN ESTATE PARK & RIDE EVENTS - PLEASE READ TO THE END AS OUR PROCEDURES HAVE CHANGED Park up and follow an 8-mile route around the estate's farm tracks, woodland rides, bridleways and rural roads - all set within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can also enjoy the five furlong grass gallop and extra jumps, with the full range of 30 optional jumps - ranging from 2ft - 3ft 3ins - now available. Refreshments and professional photographer at each event. A portaloo and standpipe for fresh water are both available at the parking area. Venue address: Gaddesden Home Farm, Bridens Camp, Hemel Hempstead, Herts HP2 6EZ. Please follow the signs for the car park. Gaddesden Estate Park & Ride Procedures: - In booking a place on a Park & Ride event you agree to abide by the rules and procedures listed below. - For safety reasons, the time slot you book will be your time slot to leave within. Therefore if you wish to ride with friends or family please ensure that you book the same time slot as we are unable to adjust these timings once you have booked. - On arrival, please check in with the steward in the gazebo and obtain a sash. These should be returned at the end of the session when you 'check out'. Sashes which are not returned will be charged for. - Please be considerate when on the Ride. We request that participants do not 'bunch up' around the jump complex as this impedes the riders behind. - Participants are liable for any costs should a vet need to be called on your behalf. Should a rider be rendered unconscious the stewards reserve the right to make the decision as to whether a vet is needed to attend to your animal. General Rules: - All children under 16 years old must be accompanied by a mounted, responsible adult for the whole ride. - No stallions/entires allowed. - No dogs allowed on the ride, other than in the parking area whereby they must be kept on a lead at all times. - All riders are required to wear an emergency medical and contact armband or carry a temporary card in an outside pocket. - Correct riding clothes and hard hats, correctly fastened and to the correct standard must be worn. Non-fixed peak hats and body protectors are recommended for those jumping. - Do not leave vehicles unlocked and keep valuables out of sight; the organisers accept no liability for loss or damage to personnel, equines, vehicles or goods. - You must have your own 3rd party liability insurance if you are not a BHS Gold member. Refund Policy: Participants will have the option to move to another Park and Ride date, or, if unable to make an alternative date, request a refund, when giving AT LEAST ONE FULL WEEK'S NOTICE. If the organisers are forced to cancel the event - for example in the case of bad weather - participants will again have the option to move to another Park and Ride date or request a refund. We regret that we are unable to offer a refund or an alternative date if your request for a refund is due to circumstances outside our control (for example if you or your horse are unwell) when less than 7 days' notice of your withdrawal from the event is given.
