About Us

Have you ever heard of the Erewash Riders Association? We are a local group of volunteers dedicated to improving rider’s rights of way in the Erewash Area.

Formed way back in 1985, Erewash Riders Association is still fighting for the right of all horses riders within its area to have access to safe, off road and enjoyable riding routes.   Erewash Riders is constantly involved in opening bridleways and is presently dealing with bridleways in the following areas:

Boyah Grange Path
Old Coach Road, Hopwell Nook
Hopwell/Dale Pat
EBC Bridleway Initiative
Riverlife way
Derby Canal Restoration
Shardlow area
Nooning Ford
Morley Almshouse
Midshires way
Elvaston Castle


To help fund what can be a costly business of trying to keep Erewash bridleways maintained and re-opened, we regularly organise rides and events with access to normally out of bounds off road riding. Come along and meet like minded people on rides or come along to help, either way, you will be met with a friendly warm welcome. We also try to organise trips and events for our members such as day trips to equestrian events, demonstrations and equestrian table top sales. See our events page for more information. ERA events are for members only. Membership can be purchased on the day of the event for £2. Please see our memberhip page to download a form.


The committee meet regularly to discuss current bridleway actions along with planning of social events and local rides. We also have an Annual General Meeting which usually involves a guest speaker from the equine industry. Have a voice, let us know what problems you have faced with riding access in your area!


We publish regular e-Magazines for our members to inform them of updates, along with interesting articles, competitions and give aways!


For only £2 per year, you can join the ERA. You will receive a quarterly magazine (via email) and option to attend our annual dinner and AGM. Also help fight to maintain existing, and open new, bridleways in your area. Visit the membership page for more information along with a membership form.
