Hacking Route: Back Woods, Spa Hill and Hazeleigh - 1 hour
Limebrook Farm Livery Yard
This is about one hour if you push on!
Leave Limebrook via the back gate and you can canter the length of the track until it reaches the tarmac section at the top.
Continue until you reach the road (be careful going either side of the gate at the end)
Continue along Lodge Road passing the 'New Field' and the 'Livery Field' on your left
Take the left hand fork in the road and follow it round past the chicken hatchery until you reach Hazeleigh Woods.
Depending on the weather the woods may be open or closed. If the board and rope is not across the entrance on the left turn left into the woods and stay on the track, otherwise a steady canter is possible along the verge.
Upon exiting the woods turn left and go about 10 yards down the road until you can turn right onto the signed bridleway.
Dependant on the ground conditions, a good length uphill canter is available at this point, but ensure you pull up before you reach the top of the track as there is a sharp S bend which may unseat you.
Follow the track around the S bend and through the gap in the hedge, the bridleway continues over the hill and down the other side crossing a wooden bridge (which can be slippery) back onto tarmac road.
At the end of the tarmac road, turn right onto the main road (This can be quite fast)
Follow the road along past several farms and the Edgewood vets, you will come to Hazeleigh crossroads. Turn Right and follow this back past the livery field back to the farm. - Be aware that the down hill bits of the road are quite slippery even when dry.
