Mendip Bridleways and Byways Association (MBBA)
The MBBA is one of the largest and most proactive Bridleway Associations in the UK, dedicated to creating and maintaining safe riding routes.
The aims of the Association are to protect and preserve the character and status of Mendip’s green ways, to advertise their existence via our map marking service and to encourage the active participation of our members to identify routes in need of improvement.
We are affiliated to the British Horse Society and we are an entirely voluntary association. All the money from our subscriptions and fundraising goes directly to improve the riding routes in the Mendip area. In fact, in the past 8 years we have funded over £75,000 worth of improvements to routes in our area! We are also fortunate to have a good working partnership with Somerset County Council and indeed where possible, many of our projects are joint funded.
To raise these funds we hold regular Fun Rides – our Glastonbury Ride being the most famous with an amazing route around the festival site and the beautiful surrounding countryside. We also host an annual Bonanza Fun Day – this year we were thrilled that Wocket Woy and Pwoducer joined us for the fun!
Please visit our website www.mbba.org.uk and like our Facebook page. Better still – join us for just £15.00 per year and receive discounts on all the events we hold!
We are also looking for Area Representatives who ride their local routes and are happy to let us know if there is a problem or to discuss issues that arise in their area. Although the positions are entirely voluntary, there is no commitment to come to regular meetings, this is simply a way for us to keep an “ear to the ground” and keep up our good work. You will be provided with a map of your area with the local bridleways and just need to contact us if an issue arises.
