On the weekend of 12th & 13th August Jonathan and Fiona Waterer kindly hosted a Working Heavy Horse event at Higher Bidacott Farm in North Devon. The event was held in aid of the Addington Fund and Chittlehampton Church.
Many horses of all different sizes came to demonstrate different working skills in the fields. The 6 horse ploughing team provided a dramatic display and there was also dung spreading with shire horses, hauling logs and wagon rides, while the younger riders showed their skills in the arena. A farrier was demonstrating shoeing a horse and there were stalls, food and much, much more. On the Sunday a dog show also took place.
We were also able to have a stand to promote farm accommodation locally, countywide and nationally.
I would recommend you watch for the event next year so you can go along and enjoy a step back in time!
