Experience Days


Our experience days are designed to give participants the basic information on harnessing and driving a heavy horse  with plenty of hands on activity.  The days can be held at our premises and participating tourist attractions.  If you are a tourist attraction and would be interested in running our experience days/courses at your premises please contact us.  These days are suitable for corporate events, can make an unusual gift, or as a special addition to your holiday in Shropshire.
