HH Skills Training Days

Heavy Horse Skills Training Days 2017

The Suffolk Horse Society is again offering its popular heavy horse training days. The days provide a good grounding that enables people to brush up on existing skills or get to grips with new ones. Some of these sessions may be useful for those looking to take part in the Society Probationer Judges Scheme.

Nigel Oakley and Cheryl Grover will conduct the training at Rede Hall Farm near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Both Nigel and Cherry are Trustees of the Suffolk Horse Society with many years' experience of the Suffolk breed and of teaching equine matters.  We limit attendance numbers so that each participant gets individual attention in a friendly, informal atmosphere.
