EXPERIENCE DAYS AND TRAINING

We are regularly asked if it's possible to come and spend the day with us to experience what it's like to work with a heavy horse, and the answer is yes!

 

Our current opportunities are available below.   This is regularly updated so please check back for future dates, or follow us on facebook or twitter for automatic updates.  In addition we are able to arrange bespoke days if you have a number of people interested, so please contact us directly if this is the case.

 

We are able to send gift certificates in the post if you are buying the day as a present.  Please email us with your ticket number after booking and we will send them directly.   Please allow 10 working days for these. Experience Days are currently £130 per person, see below for more details.
