Forestry Warning for Riders!

Riders must take part in the government’s consultation on the future of England’s Forestry Commission (FC) woodland or lose their access, both national and local equestrian groups have warned.

“Now is the time for riders to make their voices heard.”
 
Defra launched a public consultation into the future of the 637,000 acres of publicly owned forest last Thursday – to read it please follow the link to Defra – http://www.defra.gov.uk/corporate/consult/forests/index.htm.
Equestrian access to thousands of acres of England’s forests could be lost if public forests are sold off as part of the Government’s efforts to plug the national deficit.
