Over the years SAFE has helped to negotiate Horse Routes and paid money towards routes in Lisvane (from railway station north), Forest Farm (Whitchurch), Forest Ganol & Wenallt (Rhiwbina),Ty Rhiw/Walnut Tree line (RCT), Forest Fawr Caerphilly, Penallta Parc, Case Hill Woods (Dinas Powis), Cefn Mably Woods and lobbied for/paid toward improvements to many statuary bridlepaths.

The more members that SAFE has, the stronger its negotiating power!

If you care about off-road riding, please support SAFE!

Membership is £5 (Individual) or £10 (Family)

The £5 individual membership is less than a bag of feed, and a fraction of what you might pay for just one lesson or trip to a show. In some areas, especially around Rhiwbina and Whitchurch, SAFE have negotiated permissive horse routes which are the majority of the off road riding routes. If you rode out just twice a week this would work out at less than 5p a ride!

SAFE has not raised its subscription for many, many years – if you can afford the £10 family membership we would encourage you to use this option. All funds received by SAFE are put into improving off-road riding.

Of course! If you have any problems with the instructions below, please e-mail us or use the Contact Form on the Contacts page.

We will be happy to get in touch and arrange alternative methods of joining and/or paying. While Standing Order is the most convenient (for SAFE, and, we believe, yourselves), we aren’t going to turn away members!

SAFE is a self-help group, so we are always looking for members who can take a more active role. Also, if you want to make a one-off donation to support SAFE’s work, please e-mail the Treasurer
