The Sussex Cottage Holiday Blog - Heavy Horses and Working Animals show their Skills this Summer

Heavy Horses and Working Animals show their Skills this Summer

Posted 9 March 2011 by Andrew Gardner

If you are taking your cottage holiday in Sussex this summer then the Heavy Horse and Working Animals Show on Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 June, is worth seeing.

The giants of the horse world will demonstrate their skills and versatility alongside a host of other working animals at a magnificent gathering this summer. The Heavy Horse and Working Animals Show at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum, at Singleton, near Chichester, West Sussex, will be an unforgettable weekend of displays, demonstrations and parades. The Museum has for many years held its Heavy Horse Spectacular, one of the biggest shows of its kind in the south of England, and this is now the third year in which the event has also included a wide variety of other working animals. A highly entertaining and innovative show is planned, guaranteed to delight visitors of all ages.

During the two days over thirty Shires, Clydesdales, Suffolks, British Percherons and Ardennes horses will be taking part in a variety of activities. Weighing up to a ton and standing up to 19 hands high, these powerful and majestic horses are prized for their good looks, gentle temperament and capacity for work.

You can read more about the museum on our West Sussex places to visit. If you would like some ideas for accommodation have a look here.
