  • We link with other horse riding associations through 'United Riders' which is an umbrella body working on behalf of horse riders throughout Essex and south East Anglia, and with the national riding Associations.
  • EFRA is ensuring that the views of Epping Forest riders are heard during consultations on the expansion of Stanstead Airport, housing development in Essex and the south east of England, etc.
  • We have regular member's meetings to find out their concerns.
  • We publish a regular newsletter with articles about riding in the forest.
  • We run events for riders such as Horseman's Sunday, clue rides, a Christmas mulled wine ride, dressage and other competitions.
