Heavy Horse Themed Weekend

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Enjoy our heavy horse-themed weekend over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend as we throw a light on the role these gentle giants played in Victorian England.

Alongside the museums resident Shire horses we will have several guest animals who will showcase the work of horses in industrial times, including horses pulling trade vehicles, a horse wearing the harness used for shunting on the railway and a traditional harness used on canal horses.

Traditionally, on high days and holidays, the horses were turned out in their best harness with brasses shining and we will have a Shire horse dressed in his full show harness to celebrate May Day.

Enjoy demonstrations on the art of horse mane plaiting ready for show and on harnessing a heavy horse.

Horses will be on site throughout the long weekend, on Sunday & Monday a Farrier will be demonstrating the skills of shoeing horses and on Monday, a wheelwright will be demonstrating his craft.

All activities will be outdoors and be able to watched from a safe social distance.

The Museum is delighted to have recently gained accreditation from The Shire Horse Society and are now a proud member of the prestigious society.
