It is with great regret that, as the current organisers of the Golden Horseshoe Ride, we have made the decision that we will be unable to organise the event in 2021. The ride was due to be run over the weekend of the 22/23rd May. However, the Government’s recent announcement of the “Road Map” to lift current restrictions on the hospitality industry will only allow our family business, The Dartmoor Inn at Lydford, to reopen on the 17th May at the earliest. With all 4 family members heavily involved in the starting up and running of the pub, after being closed since the 30th December, this timing is very unfortunate and we need to concentrate on the business and its recovery as a priority.
The good news is that we have agreed that we will run GHS in its full format for one last time in 2022, and hope that a new organiser can be found for 2023.
