The Irish Working Horse Association now runs in its third year. They regularly organise events all over Ireland - to get together, exchange information, experiences and ideas, to learn from each other, and to promote working with horses.
Next year, after a brief break, the Pferde Stark, one of Europe's biggest working horse festivals, will take place again near Detmold in the Northwest of Germany. This is bound to be a spectacular event with many different working horse breeds from all over Europe taking part in farm work and carriage driving demonstrations.
Also, in 2013, the European Horse Logging Championship will be held at the Pferde Stark!
