Our Volunteers!

We would like to give a huge heartfelt thank you to all of our super volunteers and supporters. 
Being a non-profit charity we don't receive any funding or have any paid members of staff. We are ran entirely by volunteers who do an amazing job. 

This weekend we saw our first event of the season, our popular Medieval Tournament. We're pleased to say it was a great success and we've heard lots of great compliments and feedback which makes us all extremely proud. 

Our volunteers have spent countless hours preparing for the event, many spending the night sleeping in tents and working until dark. We really don't want to overlook the importance of volunteers and what they do.

If you would like to help support the Heavy Horse Centre please send us a message. We guarantee we'll have something you can help with!

Medieval Fair at Sutton Craft Barns

We had a fantastic and fun time away performing at Sutton Craft Barns this weekend. We gave a small demonstration of medieval riding skills, equestrian vaulting and a small fire show. All were enjoyed by the crowds. 

The weekend wasn't without it's original hiccups with us having horse technical difficulties so we kindly were offered use of another horse and transport by a lady who lives not far from us. We are so grateful for her help and loan of her horse, Katie. Katie had never done any of these tricks before but you couldn't tell, she didn't even flinch to having one of our equestrian vaulters stand on her back! She even let Vicky her rider try horse archery whilst on her back!
