This is a special day with one-to-one tuition and guidance in working with Harvey, Samuel and Joshua, the three heavy horses at the Museum.  The day starts with grooming and harnessing Harvey.  You will receive handling tuition, and have the chance to long rein Harvey around the fields of the Museum’s Historic Chilterns Farm.   There will also be the chance to take part in other working activities, including harrowing if the weather is suitable, and for you to work with the other horses.
