Blenheim Palace Fun Ride



The first fun ride ran at Blenheim in 2012. It was a huge success and has grown in popularity ever since. Now 300 everyday riders are able to enjoy some of the private roads and tracks of the Blenheim Estate.

The ride, which covers approximately 10 miles, incorporates some optional fences of 2'3" to 2'9". It also offers some amazing views of the estate and palace and unique photo opportunities, as well as the opportunity to see secret areas of the park on horseback - something which is normally not accessible to everyday riders!

"This year reached a new level of ‘inclusiveness’ with the fun ride. Your team of organisers and stewards for the fun ride were superb" – Sue Eeley

"It all ran so smoothly and I think everyone loved riding around such a beautiful parkland and to be part of such a prestigious horse trials" – Clare Davis

Thank you again for making the fantastic Blenheim Palace Fun Ride possible for those of us who wouldn't normally have the chance! - Theresa Sanders
