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 based upon your ‘home’ ride. A member's ‘home’ ride is determined as the closest TROT route to the stable where the member's horse is kept. If the nearest route is a Forestry Commission route, then you have the option of adding Farm routes to your membership as well. If the nearest route is a Farm route, then Forestry Commission routes are automatically included.
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.
Disabled riders memberships are free of charge but charges for hatbands and tags and deposits for keys are applicable. Please contact us for a membership form. Documentary confirmation of your disability (Blue Badge or a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions) should be enclosed with your application.
