The Committee

The Park is owned by Camden Council and administered by a Committee consisting of Equestrian & Community volunteers.

 

Recreational Riding

BYO Horse & Ride in the Park.

The park, all 80 hectares, is available for use by recreational horse riders and horse carriage drivers most days of the year, excluding only those days on which major events are being held taking up the use of the whole ground.

Both individually and in groups many riders have been taking advantage of this facility at all times of the day from day break to late evening throughout the year.

The casual rider/driver is also catered for with a casual daily rate.

Terms and conditions of usage are set out in the Application Form. Additionally the committee has adopted and implemented safety rules in line with National Standards. International Standards may apply in the case of events requiring their usage.

As riders/drivers are not covered by Camden Council insurance it is the duty of the rider/driver to provide evidence of personal insurance coverage of his/her usage of the park.

N.B. Home and Building Contents Policies, including N.R.M.A. and other similar insurers, do not provide liability coverage for this park usage
