About Heavy Horse Show

Enjoy free horse rides, visit our 1950s farm and make horse inspired crafts.

Please note this is a charging event: the Annual Pass and NTS Membership are not valid.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Heavy Horse Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
