Organised by arrangement with you at a time convenient to us both, this heavy horse course takes you back into a different era and gives you the opportunity to gain as much “hands on experience” of working a heavy horse as possible and is tailor made to your requirements. For example, we can do a combination of driving work, field work and horse logging work, or just one of these if you prefer, although ground conditions and time of year will have an influence on this. It is not a requirement for you to have worked with horses before as we will tailor the course to your needs and abilities.

Course Date:
(by arrangement with you)

Cost £200 per day including a scrumptious lunch, tea, coffee and cakes! 

plus £50 per additional person including food.

Personalised Gift Vouchers can be included for the Horse Logging/Working Horse Courses; an original and memorable present.

"Just a quick mail to thank you ever so much for a terrific day yesterday! Robyn and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect and really appreciate that you took the time to incorporate our needs (whether we knew them or not) into the instruction. We had a ball and learned so much." David
