What do we do?
The Kingdom Blazers organise jump rides in the winter and then fun rides, pub quizzes and other social events in the summer.
What is a jump ride?
It’s similar to a cross-country course because it follows a pre-set route, and also has lots of jumps, but you ride alongside all the other horses. In short, it’s brilliant fun! After your first time out, nearly everyone, no matter how nervous beforehand, finishes with a big smile on their face.
Where are they?
We are very fortunate to be able to ride over many different areas of Fife, thanks to the generosity of a great number of farmers and landowners. You can find out where we will meet each week on our upcoming events page. We try to publish details a few weeks in advance.
When is it?
Jump rides start in October and we meet every Saturday until early March the following year. We set off at 12 noon and follow the first line. There’s a break of around 20 mins before we set off on the second line. The day usually finishes at 2.30pm with a hack home. We usually cover around 20 jumps per day. If you don’t want to jump, that’s absolutely fine – there are always options. There are always plenty of helpers on duty.
We would recommend a hacking jacket or cross-country attire, preferably with a back protector and stock. BS-approved hats are compulsory. Horses should be clean and presentable and your tack must be in good working order.
Health and safety
Your horse must be fit.
If your horse kicks, you must tie a red ribbon into its tail.
If your horse is new to the sport, or you’re not sure whether it kicks, you must tie a green ribbon into its tail as a warning.
Please follow directions from the stewards at all times and keep away from crops – our sport relies on the goodwill of the farmers.
