We are often asked if it is possible to come and spend the day with our horses to experience what it is like to work with such magnificent animals - and the answer is yes!  We run monthly Experience Days in partnership with Chelmsford City Council at Hylands Park.  These days are usually based around either carriage driving or horse logging, and we also run occasional days for Under 16's too.  No previous experience is necessary, and there is a maximum of 4 places available each day, so you'll get plenty of hands-on time.
The day starts with meeting all the horses, before grooming, harnessing and getting one of them ready for work.  You'll be introduced to rein and voice commands, given a demonstration of the task at hand, and then given a chance to have a go under the watchful eye of one of our team.  The days are relaxed and designed to give you a fun day with our horses and give you an understanding of what working with them involves.  Tea and Coffee is provided, and there is an excellent Cafe at Hylands for lunch, or you can bring your own.

We are Currently revamping our Experience Day Program.  Please visit back soon or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates (Posted 2/6/2017)
