TROT toll routes are on both private land and Forestry Commission land. Those on private land are referred to as ‘Farm’ routes. We have Farm toll routes in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Cheshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Leicestershire. In addition there are routes on Forestry Commission land in Berkshire, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Two thirds of your membership fee goes back to the landowner or to the Forestry Commission and the remaining third goes towards the management and running of the TROT system.
The membership year runs from 1st May until 30th April the following year. If you decide to join partway through the year, you will only be charged for the number of months until the following April 30th. Note that this includes the month that we are currently in! For example, if you join in September, the membership will run from September 1st until April 30th the following year (8 months). Renewed memberships in the second and subsequent years are always for 12 months. Please also note that if you join during April, your membership will run for 13 months until the end of the following April.
The membership fee is base upon your "home" route. If there is a Farm route and a Forestry route within 30 miles (as the crow flies) of your stable's postcode, you will be offered the choice between the nearest route of both types. You must choose between them and whichever route you choose becomes your "home" route. Selecting the Forestry route will give you membership which allows you to ride on all TROT Forestry routes. Selecting the Farm route will give you membership which allows you to ride on all TROT routes, both Farm and Forestry. If no routes are found please contact the TROT office. If there are only Forestry routes available you will be offered the nearest Forestry route. If there are only Farm routes you will be offered the nearest Farm route.
Please have your rider's insurance details and the postcode of your horse's stable handy, as you will need these to complete the form.
