Hacking licences for the 2017-18 season are now available. They are valid from 1 Mar 2017 to 28 Feb 2018 and cost £30 each, the same as in previous years. Please note that you must have a licence to ride a horse or pony anywhere on the Common apart from on the Restricted Byway along the front edge of the hill and a short stretch of bridleway at the far end of West Down. The Rangers will be checking to ensure all riders are properly licensed. Riders must sign up to the Riders' Code as a condition of being granted a licence.
If you intend to ride on the Common during the coming 12 months, please complete an application form and return it to the Board of Conservators with your payment. Find the form here: bit.ly/CCHackingLicenceRead More
