We have run these courses over the last couple of years
and they have been very successful. The course is aimed
at people who are considering horse logging as a career.
It is a five-day course that will give an insight into all
parts of working horses in woodlands, but obviously
this is only a start. We cover horse care, harness types,
harnessing, health and safety. After the initial theory
there will be mainly hands-on exercise, from long reining to doing a complete job.
By the end of the course participants should be able to
be of some help to loggers who might need a hand.
After the course there is the offer of continued support
for people who would like to take this further.
Course cost is £850 for 5 days for BHL
members.( £880 for nonmembers)
