Introduction to the challenge

The scheme is a new addition for 2020 as an opportunity for members to ride out of the arena and explore new areas of the country side and local environment. 

Members who wish to take part, are asked to record their rides and to record the distances they travel in miles or kilometres. This is to be recorded on a Pony Club Rides tracker.
