Special events

There have been applications received by various bodies, such as for orienteering, and foot races. These are judged on their merits but more often are approved subject to conditions. The British Driving Society applied on behalf of Riding for the Disabled to have the occasional drive. As a horse carriages might be described as a vehicle this was a difficult judgment. It was agreed that, provided sufficient notice was given to the Ranger and no more than two carriages were employed, approval was given.
