Working with heavy horses

Event details

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, events may be cancelled.

Spend the day learning how to care for heavy horses and how to work with them.  You will start by grooming one of Acton Scott’s heavy horses, understanding the importance of foot care, feeding regimes and general horse husbandry. You will then learn how to put the harness on before going out into the fields to begin driving a cart and undertaking fieldwork.

Suitable for beginners, the day will be physically demanding.

You will need to dress for the weather as this course takes place outside and wear safety/sturdy boots.

Tutors: Simon Trueman and Jak Hickman

Simon and Jak are available to run heavy horse days on alternative dates to groups of four or five people.  If you have a group and would like a course run especially for you, then please contact us for further details.
