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 Charlie or Joe before taking him out into the fields to begin driving a cart and undertaking fieldwork.
Suitable for beginners, with a maximum of five participants, your day will be physically demanding.
Course tutor: Simon Trueman and Jak Hickman
* Simon and Jak are available to run heavy horse days on alternative dates for groups of five people. If you have a group and would like a course run especially for you.
