Not managed to get to any open days or shows there,but spent a day with the horses about five years ago,great people, very helpful and knowlegable.

 

Spent most of the day learning about the horses and the tack,but the short time that we spent out in the woods was astounding,I'll never forget shackling a very large pole to a fairly small Ardennes - it just walked away as though we'd tied a broom handle to it !

 

Great day and wonderful beasts - recommend it to anyone who gets the chance
