The day includes an introduction to the horses, then learn how to harness your horse. Moving out to the field you will work your horse on long reins, walking behind them, giving directions and verbal instruction, as well as driving a sledge pulled by the horse to further practice your skills. In the afternoon you will progress to driving the carriage alongside the other participants though the parkland. At the end of the day you can help to turn the horses out into their fields.
