Draft Horse Basics (Scholarship Available)


Experienced teamsters share draft horse handling, hitching, and driving skills. Participants begin by building confidence with the gentle giants in the barn, brushing and harnessing. Then, skills will be honed with simple ground driving of a single horse progressing to plowing and other field work with a team. Breeds, hoof care, and health will be covered. Experience the pleasures of working with Suffolk draft horses on Tillers’ beautiful farm, and start building the skills you’ll need to work with draft horses on your own.
