Hawthorn Heavy Horses is a family run business based in Essex that specialises in using heavy horses for woodland and land management, using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. We excel in working on sensitive sites, nature reserves, parks or anywhere machinery is undesirable and a more sensitive approach is needed . In addition we also run the Hylands Horses project at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, where as well as undertaking estate and woodland management using horses, we provide public carriage rides, heavy horse experience days, wedding rides and educational demonstrations.We also sell sustainable firewood that is produced and sold on site.
Currently we have two Suffolk Punch horses, a Shire, and a range of equipment from across the UK and the world. In 2014 we were accepted onto the British Horse Loggers "Professional Register", further demonstrating our position as one of the top working horse businesses in the UK.
