Spend the day learning how to care for heavy horses and how to work with them. You will start by grooming one of Acton Scott’s heavy horses, understanding the importance of foot care, feeding regimes and general horse husbandry. You will then learn how to put the harness on before going out into the fields to begin driving a cart and undertaking fieldwork. Suitable for beginners, the day will be physically demanding.
