Based at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Hawthorn Heavy Horses are experts in the use of heavy horses for Forestry, Carriage Work and Tourism.




We are a Husband and Wife team based in Essex.  Matt is an experienced land manager with a degree in Countryside Management working since 2002 gaining practical experience with charities, local authorities and private companies and has ridden horses since his teens.  Claudia has had a lifelong love for horses and with a degree in Equine Management has been working professionally with heavy horses since 2002, including teaching, showing, driving, logging and demonstrating. 



In 2004 we decided to combine our two areas of expertise and set up a working horse business, as we believe that horses have an important role to play in land management now and in the future.  After specialist training in horse logging and lots of research we started the business in 2008, we are now the premier horse loggers in the region and are a successful tourist attraction at Hylands Park in Chelmsford with a growing firewood business.
