Mapped Out For Equestrian Enthusiasts
is a great time for getting out and about. It may be cold
but nothing can beat those crisp morning rides. Wrapped in
your Puffa and wearing multiple pairs of socks, you can escape
the hustle and bustle of the festive period and enjoy the
tranquillity of the British countryside.
if you're wondering what to buy your fellow horsy friends
for Christmas and you haven't got a huge budget, then look
no further. Every rider should have an Ordnance Survey Explorer
map - and at only £6.99 each you can't go wrong. Whether
you're riding in your local area or exploring some of the
other regions of Great Britain, the right map will help you
locate even the most hidden bridleways, resulting in a more
satisfying and personalised escape.
a scale of 1:25 000, Ordnance Survey's range of Explorer maps
provides equine enthusiasts with the most authoritative guide
to the countryside yet. With unrivalled, accurate detail that
highlights car parks, riding stables, bridleways, picnic sites
and of course local pubs where you can both stop for a well-deserved
rest, you can ensure that you make the most of your escape.
What's more, highly detailed contours allow you to evaluate
the difficulty of your route so you can select a challenging
trail that will
really push you and your horse.
Survey's Explorer range is stocked in many high street shops,
but if you prefer to do your Christmas shopping away from
the crowds, log on to www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/escape where
a complete range is available to order. And with Ordnance
Survey's revolutionary new OS Select maps now available on-line,
