Help SAFE help you!

Please help us to help you to fill these pages.

Do you see an opportunity for improving off-road riding in your area? Perhaps with some support you are prepared to help bring this about?.

We can provide advice about contacts and grant funding and have some limited  funds (which added to “matched” grant funding can often go quite a long way). If so please do get in touch .


North Machen

SAFE is currently in contact with Caerphilly County Borough Council regarding the replacement or repair of a gate which is proving impossible to manage from horseback.


Gwern-y-Domen planning application

SAFE was previously involved with the BHS, Caerphilly Council and the Welsh Forestry Commission in the creation of routes in the area for walkers, cyclists and riders.

SAFE is currently active in feeding into the consultation process regarding a housing development in this area, which may impact negatively on access for horse riders.

There are concerns that a development on a green field site will increase traffic on country lanes used by horseriders and SAFE needs to understand how any new roads and housing will impact on the bridlepath at its northern end.


Horse Step over Coed Coesau

The step over is steep and very muddy. Being close to a road makes it more dangerous. SAFE has been in contact with Natural Resources Wales with a view to raising the surface and (if practicable) moving it back to make it safer.
