The BRITISH HORSE LOGGERS CHARITABLE TRUST (BHLCT) was set up in 2006 in order to receive gifts and charitable donations to support Horse Logging in the UK.

The Trust’s charitable objectives are to:

  • promote and maintain the standards of the craft of Horse Logging for the public benefit
  • advance education and training in the craft of Horse Logging and associated skills

The BHLCT has five principal activities:

Apprenticeships
The Trust runs a three-year Apprenticeship Scheme in order to encourage new horse loggers. The scheme is accredited to Level III by Ascentis.
To date, the BHLCT and its funders have supported five apprentices

Grants
The Trust provides a small grant-funding programme for BHL Members; the grants are aimed at new and aspiring horse loggers to help them develop their businesses.  Click on the link below for more information and to see the application form.

Machinery Ring
BHLCT owns a number of pieces of specialist equipment, which it hires to BHL members.  The machinery ring is used by new businesses that are currently unable to invest capital in their own equipment and established horse loggers who have a one-off need for such equipment.

Demonstration Events
The Trust, with the help of its Patron, HRH Prince Charles, has organised a number of ‘Seeing is Believing’ demonstrations.

Fund Raising
The Trust is actively seeking funding for its activities and welcomes donations, gifts, legacies and bequests
