Working Horses in Harnesses

Price: from £145 per person (+VAT), per day 

Our three-day heavy horse courses in Working Horses in Harnesses offers you the opportunity to discover the basic ideas and practices of your environmentally-friendly work mates. 

Through handling, harnessing and caring for a working horse on the farm, you'll learn everything from heavy horse behaviour and its physical workings, right up to hitching on the harness for a day of logging.

Depending on the time of year and, of course, on the British weather, the content will vary - but you'll certainly experience a useful, hitched activity by the end of the third day.

One to one sessions are also available - call us to talk through what suits you best.

...this is what I was meant to do [...] I feel so natural and comfortable with the horses - whatever I do, it seems, as I was not sure I'd be able to work with them like we have [...] Clearly I need to practice to get good at these things, but it's been very surprising and fulfilling to know that I can actually do it!
