The Western Counties Heavy Horse Society's event
A day at "The Western Counties Heavy Horse Society's" event
I spent the day at The Western Counties Heavy Horse Society's working day event. I watched several demonstration's of the horses carrying out different task from grass cutting to manure spreading. There was also a dressage and horse shoeing demonstration. Some of the Images that I took at the event can be viewed -- here...
The Society was formed in 1975 its aim is to promote heavy horses and encourage their use in agriculture, industry and leisure.
Due to mechanisation on the modern farm, there has been a marked decline in the use of working horses.
