Overview

'A 350km network of routes developed specifically for horse-riders and walkers, linked to quality assured horse and rider accommodation ... SOSCT routes are clearly waymarked, most of the gates are easy to open (for riders that means without dismounting), and the drainage and other improvements which have been undertaken throughout allow you to walk or ride these routes with confidence that you won’t get stuck in a bog or have to turn back when you find your way blocked.'
