    Logging with horses, can anyone advise me?

    I have given him a email and I found the articles very useful on his website, think I am going to do a course of some description to learn about the techniques needed, maybe a weekend course to start and then see if I feel I need to do more.Given the BHL a email to find out about courses. What a beautiful mare she is stunning, I would love to know a bit more about her! This might sound like a daft question but do they 'fit' in a standard horse trailer or do they need some adaption for large bottoms?

    Thank you, I shall give him a email, his website is very helpful! Do I really need a training course! I mean I have ridden from being very young and also driven horses! I understand that the horse must get used to the sound of the chains/equipment behind it and pulling weight but surely like anything with any horse it is a case of building trust and introducing them to it over a period of time, making it fun to them as all horses (apart from the lazy plods who need some convincing) love to work. I would be very interested in hearing of that mare you have.

    Logging with horses, can anyone advise me?

    I have searched the forums and BHL but I can't seem to find the in depth breed info and harness info I need. Although I think I have found my logging horse.....bless the little bugger [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzwmmnFrkIM]horse logging, Annie i skogen - YouTube[/ame]
  10. I have a few questions that I can't seem to find the answers to and was wondering if there are any horse loggers on here? I have been looking at different breeds! Dales ponies seem to pop up ever so often as a popular choice and heavy weight cobs (around 15hh) seem to be good as you get a good horse for considerably less money than pure heavy horse breeds. Then there is the Ardennes (belgain draft?)! The perfect breed for the job but trying to get a hold of one or finding a dealer/breeder is like trying to get hold of unicorn poop! Does anyone know of any breeders/dealers/importers over here? Where did you purchase yours? Where do you source your tack? and what is the cost? I was wondering how complicated the training of the horses really is! I am presuming it is just a case of training the horse to accept the movement of a log behind it and getting it used to the tack and also teaching words like "walk on", "stand", "steady" etc etc and teaching the horse to use it's brain I am not looking to make a huge profit in horse logging, more of a small profit making hobby (I have mentioned that I was thinking of doing it to friends and they have already expressed a interest in using the horse) as I have been around horses since a child and want to help keep this tradition alive. Any advice would be very much appreciated!
