Horse Logging Demonstration and Training Course

With: Hawkmoth Wood, North Yorkshire
Horse logging

This is a brief but comprehensive introduction to the working horse aimed at interested novices.
Use and handling of the horse will be demonstrated, and trainees may move to hands-on experience if they wish. Emphasis throughout will be on animal welfare and safe working practice.

This is an ideal opportunity for beginners with an interest in traditional woodland management techniques, woodland owners who would like to know more about timber extraction in difficult or sensitive areas, and professionals in the timber industry to add some practical knowledge in what is still a valid though much reduced industry.
