The Federation was formed in 1989 as the Federation of Pennine Bridleway Associations. With increasing requests for membership from all over the country, the Federation became a national organization in 1997.
The Federation is a member of the Rights of Way Review Committee, which makes recommendations on rights of way legislation to central government. It was also a member of the Equestrian Access Forum, which produced the equestrian access strategy Making Ways for Horses (August 2012).
A grass-roots, bottom-up organization, the Federation provides a contact network to inform, support and encourage the many people and local groups working in isolation to improve bridleway access in their own areas.
