Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park - Taya Street with Abby Rose and her foal, Lily Rose

We provide an experience you won’t find elsewhere and making your day trip educational and entertaining is our aim - whether you're a family group, grandparent or young couple.

Let us take you on a journey learning how heavy horses faithfully served man for thousands of years. Carrying soldiers into battle, transporting goods up and down the country, hauling barges and tirelessly ploughing lands.
