The six participants all gathered in the cobbled old courtyard for an introduction round, a slide show on the history of working horses and to look at different types of harnesses.
Then, we went to get the horses and everybody was keen to have a go at grooming them - especially Daisy, the foal, was very popular! We then learned about harnessing the horses correctly and took off to the walled garden where everybody had a go at long-reining the horses from the ground, signel and as a team.
After a tasty lunch we gathered again in the garden to learn about different horse-drawn farm implements.
Then, it was time to get down to work and do a bit of weeding with the harrow between the rows of vegetables.
The day finished with a round for the children on the sled, pulled by a still keen and energetic Henry!
