Bedmax Newmarket Heath Ride in aid of Racing Welfare
This year’s Bedmax Newmarket Heath Ride in aid of Racing Welfare will take place on Sunday 15th September.

The Newmarket Heath Ride is a sponsored ride which offers the chance for participants to ride over 8, 15 or 20 mile routes across Newmarket’s hallowed turf.  Starting and finishing at the July Course, the event is made possible by the support and kind permission of The National Stud, Newmarket Racecourses and Jockey Club Estates.

This ride gives you access to some of the best turf in Newmarket. Follow in Frankel’s hoofprints with a blast along the mile long Al Bahathri all weather gallop. Like previous years, we have combined the ticket price and sponsorship into one fee, with no additional sponsorship money required unless you choose to fundraise. Richard Weller-Poley will be onsite to capture your memorable moments along the ride.

All horses must have a valid passport which should be available for presentation on the day should this be required. Flu-vaccinations and tetanus should be up to date in line with current BEF guidelines.


Bookings open on Monday 15th July. Spaces are limited so we recommend booking in early to avoid disappointment.

Since we launched BEDMAX almost 25 year ago, the racing sector has been such an important supporter of our business and it is a privilege to help Racing Welfare in some small way. We hope everyone has fantastic day on the Newmarket Health Ride and that they enjoy their ride across what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most noted racehorse training grounds.
