Why the NFBA exists
- to protect and defend existing and potential bridleways and byways and the rights of all bridleway and byway users
- to promote public awareness of the need for and the existence of bridleways and byways and to publicise routes
- to advise local groups on bridleway- and byway-related issues
- to promote the viability of local groups and to encourage the formation of new ones
- to research the historical basis of bridleway and byway claims
- to develop a national bridleways/byways network by coordinating cross-border routes and by promoting the creation of new regional routes (e.g. disused railways, canal towpaths)
- to monitor where possible any regional or national trends which may affect equestrian access
- to seek representation on appropriate regional and national organizations concerned with access, recreation or sport
- to foster links with other user organizations nationally.
The NFBA covers England and Wales.
