The Parochial Church Council for St Peter ad Vincula are behind the idea for a pleasure ride. The team are a group of local volunteers who all wish to raise money for our historic 13th Century church in Tollard Royal. In addition we wish to support 2 other historic churches in Farnham and Chettle.

All the volunteers are horse riders and also want to help support the fantastic work of Dorset Air Ambulance and Wilton Riding for the Disabled.

The idea of a ride is to attract people to the Cranborne Chase, visit our churches and generate revenue from outside of the village.

Jackie Lloyd of Lloyd Endurance is advising the design of the ride, planning of the routes and helping to ensure the day is well managed.

There will be 3 routes each giving a unique opportunity to ride across normally restricted land. By kind permission of Ashcombe Estate, Rushmore Estate and Chettle Estate.

Hence its called the ARC Ride!
