Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park - Heavy Horses

The faithful Heavy Horse built our roads, harvested our crops, supplied our railroads, fought our wars and carried us to our graves. They should be recognised as a national treasure, an indispensable part of our heritage and history. We believe we should take the best care of the few which remain with us today.

The Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park is run by a family passionate on the protection of the Heavy Horses. Their aim is to give visitors of all ages an insight into how we once relied on these majestic working animals and to plant a seed of interest into the minds of the young generation as the future of these horses lies in their hands. As well as delivering an educational experience the dedicated family wish to bring hours of enjoyment to visitors near and far.

Sadly this is now one of the last remaining Heavy Horse Centres left in Great Britain and is proud to be funded by its own efforts. The attraction is not charity funded but relies solely on visitors entrance fees to keep running. The farm is home to over 15 Heavy Horses many of which have been rescued being in need of a secure home. Amongst the Heavy Horses the farm also provides sanctuary to many other farmyard friends including, ponies, donkeys, alpacas, turkeys, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, pigs, ferrets and aviary birds.

Without ongoing support from our partners, the farm park could not continue to look after our heavy horses and work on the rare breed conservation we care so much about. The smallest amount really does make a big difference.
