BHL introduction to Horse logging course
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.
