Pleasure Riding

Pleasure Riding Award Scheme

If you would like to earn lovely rosettes for riding your donkey, join the Pleasure Riding Award Scheme. You will receive a log book to record your riding time and on attaining 25 riding hours, and multiples thereafter, you will receive a lovely rosette. The joining fee is £4.00 and covers up to 50 miles – or the first two rosettes. You can log your riding in minutes – you don’t have to ride for an hour at a time – and it is surprising how the time adds up. You can count time in the show ring (and the collecting ring), gymkhana games, hacking out – anywhere you are riding your donkey. There is no upper or lower age limit, but please observe the height/weight regulations:
