Heavy Horses

Working Heavy Horses

 Harvey, Joshua and Samuel

  • Chiltern Open Air Museum is home to three working horses: Harvey, a Clydesdale, and his half-brothers, young Shires, Joshua and Samuel.
  • All three horses are undergoing regular training, Harvey as a single horse and the two youngsters as a working pair and also as singles. They feature in working heavy horse events during the season.
  • If you are interested in learning about working with heavy horses, the Museum offers Heavy Horse Experience Days.
  • There are opportunities to meet Harvey, Joshua and Samuel during the year (see Events).
