Frensham Sponsored Horse Ride

Sunday 3rd May  2020

It is with extreme regret, and after careful consideration, that The Hedgehogs, (Farnham’s local charity Helping Local People in Need), wish to advise the cancellation of this year’s Frensham Sponsored Horse Ride (FSHR), scheduled to be held on Sunday 3rd May 2020.

 This decision is to comply with UK Gov. Advice on the COVID -19 pandemic and its robust recommendations around social distancing, non-essential travel, public gatherings, self-isolation, and closure of schools. The undetermined period of such measures has forced The Hedgehogs decision to cancel the FSHR.

 We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment that this decision will cause, but putting the safety of riders, their supporters, the general public and volunteers connected with the FSHR is our first and foremost priority.

 In such times as this, we all have a role to play in assisting with the ongoing management and control of COVID – 19 in the interests of public health and reducing the potential impact on the NHS.

 The FSHR organising committee will shortly be in contact with all those who have already made bookings either via Equo or Postal.

We thank you for support in the past and hope that we can all be outside in groups again soon, enjoying our beautiful countryside.

 How to Enter

Online Using Equo

By registering with Equo the entry process for this Ride and all future Frensham Rides and all other rides in the UK who use Equo, will be simple. If however, you are borrowing a horse and don’t have all the information required by Equo please use the postal entry process

During the on line entry process you will be able to request your  preferred start time. The Equo system will then confirm your ‘Start time and Rider Number’. If for any reason your preferred start time is not available  then please email  secretary@frenshamshr.org  and she will either give your preferred time or a time as close as possible to your preference. As before we expect many hundreds of Riders and sometimes meeting your preferred time might not be possible. An early entry will clearly help.
