This will be a unique opportunity for horse riders and cyclists to ride through the famous Festival ground passing the site of the pyramid stage, the healing ground, dragon field and standing stones before riding up the steep escarpment to the summit of Stickleball Hill. There will be cross country as well as coloured jumps in varying heights en route, as well as a photographer and refreshments available on the Festival site.
The aims of MBBA are to protect and preserve the character and status of Mendip’s Green Ways and to advertise their existence for the safe use and enjoyment of all, especially children. Money raised by the event will go towards the cost of providing new gates and improving the condition of bridle paths throughout Mendip.
