Horse Logging Course

Saturday September 30 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

| £65

A Hands On Horse Logging Taster Day with Nick Burton of Powys Forest Horses

The day will include an introduction to horse logging and horse logging equipment, with a talk about harnesses, horse care and grooming, followed by a practical demonstration of putting on the harness. Participants will then have a go at guiding the horse with long reins before moving on to negotiating an obstacle course without and then with a small log. As places on the course are very limited there will be a good opportunity for everyone to gets Hands On. Finally we will move on to having a go in the woodland setting extracting a larger log from the woods. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions regarding the practicalities of running a working horse operation.

To book please contact us on 01938 561741 or email info@stiperstonesandcorndon.co.uk.
