Staff College Drag Hunt Fun Rides
Staff College Drag Hunt runs two Fun Rides every year: in May we help to organise a ride around Windsor Great Park and in October we run a ride around Minley. Entries are open to all and our rides are suitable for happy hackers, to fit eventers. They have a wide selection of well built and maintained jumps, in various sizes, all of which can be bypassed if you are a non-jumper. The rides are widely recognised as two of the friendliest and well run rides in the South, riders come back year after year to enjoy themselves. If you have any questions, please email

Minley Fun Ride 4th October 2020 - CANCELLED
We are incredibly sad to announce that circumstances have forced us to cancel our Minley Fun Ride on 4th October 2020.
The Fun Ride takes place on Defence Training Estate, owned by the Ministry of Defence and controlled by the Defence Infrastucture Organisation (DIO).
Given the recent hardening of government policy in relation to Covid-19, the DIO have directed that use of Defence Training Estate is to be restricted solely to military training and that all third party activities (this includes us) are limited to 6 people on site at any one time.
Under these circumstances, we have no other option than to cancel our Fun Ride.
We are hugely disappointed to have to do this and apologise to all our lovely Fun Riders who have entered.
REFUNDS: Refunds will be automatically issued to everyone who has entered, you don't need to email us. Our secretary will start to process refunds from this FRIDAY 18th SEPT. Please be patient with her - she has hundreds of refunds to process! Please also be aware that it may take a few days for your refund to appear back onto your payment card. If you have any questions about your refund, you can email Jess email@example.com.
FUND RAISING: This event is an important fundraiser for our Drag Hunt, so if you would like to offer your entry fee as a donation towards the cost of caring for and feeding our lovely hounds, then please email Jess firstname.lastname@example.org. There is NO OBLIGATION to do this and if Jess doesn't hear from you, then she will process your refund. If you would like to donate your entry fee to our Drag Hunt, please email Jess before this Friday 18th when she will start processing the refunds.
Many thanks to everyone who supports this ride, year after year. We look forward to welcoming you all to our ride in 2021!
Royal Windsor Fun Ride 25th & 26th May 2019
What a fantastic couple of days at the Royal Windsor Fun Ride! Huge thanks to everyone ‘behind the scenes’ without whom this ride could not go ahead. Thank you to Amanda Stewart & her team for their top organisational skills, to our fence builders for the fabulous selection of jumps that the riders enjoyed and last but not least - to everyone who gave up their free time to steward the ride. We couldn’t have done it without you! The result of all the effort? 650 smiling riders having a great time in the beautiful setting of Windsor Great Park.
