Heavy Horses

Working with Heavy Horses

Spending time with a heavy horse is a wonderful experience. Their gentleness and generosity will fill you with an enormous sense of calm and understanding.

Our two day course offers you the opportunity to experience and learn the basics for working a heavy horse in harness. You will work through modules designed to give you an insight into the behaviour of horses, horse care, tack and equipment, harnessing and introduction to working a heavy horse.
