Toll Rides (Off-Road) Trust – or TROT – is a national organisation with local agents around the country who develop new riding routes for horse riders on farm land and rights of way, avoiding roads. Riders pay a fee according to how many miles of toll routes are open in their ‘hackable’ radius and once a rider becomes a member of TROT they can use ALL other farm or forestry routes nationwide for no extra fee. Seventy percent of the members’ fees go to the farmer/landowner, with the remaining thirty percent going towards the costs of administration.

The Stapleford TROT route comprises approximately 18 miles of ‘off road’ riding with links into rights of way in the area. The route is mostly on arable field margins with some tracks and pastureland.

Stapleford TROT is located between Whissendine, in Rutland, and the neighbouring village of Burton Lazaars, in Leicestershire. There is plenty of suitable roadside parking in the area. Secure off road parking is available for a small charge at Pears Lodge Farm on the TROT route.
