Providing safe off-road riding

Welcome to TROT

TROT (Toll Rides Off-road Trust) is a charitable trust dedicated to providing members with an extensive national network of horse riding and carriage driving routes on privately owned land. 

Through our dedicated band of local agents, we work with landowners to establish and maintain interesting and well-kept off-road rides where our members can enjoy riding and driving safely and legally.

TROT administers the Forestry Commission’s riding permit scheme for horse riding in forests in Southern England.

Our routes

Farm routes are generally on privately owned farmland or woodland.They may include short sections of bridleway or byway but there will be minimal roadwork and, best of all, there are generally no other users! This helps our members to enjoy a safer riding experience.

Forestry routes may contain bridleways and byways but TROT membership opens up a wonderful network of riding trails, helping to keep members away from the busier public areas of the forests.

Please see more information about routes here.

Calling all landowners!

TROT is always looking to expand the choice of rides that it provides to its members. If you have a trail on your land suitable for horse riding and would like to recover some of the cost of maintenance, please click here to see some of the benefits of allowing TROT members to ride on your land.
