It is with a very heavy heart that we have to deliver the devastating news of the loss of Steve our amazing Canadian Percheron. We are not clear on what actually has happened but he must have had a fall and he was unable to get up despite all attempts, from himself, us and little Shetland Orbit who stayed with him throughout as well as Bosun watching carefully too.Steve came to live at the centre at the end of April 2011 in fact the day of the Royal wedding is when we collected him! Since his arrival Steve has been a big part of the centre,not only in height standing at 18.3hh but also in his character. He became best friends with Bosun our British Percheron, and taking on various working roles within his time with us. He was a good solid chap who made everyone feel safe, he helped teach humans how to interact with horses, he taught his human best friend Matt how to be a Medieval knight, as well as other folk too, he took part in the equestrian vaulting shows demonstrating how our team perform gymnastics on horsesback...

Steve, as usual was very well behaved and a crowd pleaser! Whilst it wasn't the busiest Friday in Skegness we still had lots of interest and lots of people tell us they'd come and visit.
Steve is a 17hh Canadian Percheron and is a firm Northcote favourite well known for his nickname 'Speedy Steve' in our popular Medieval Tournaments! He is also sometimes used within our vaulting team. You can find out more about Steve here.Read More
