Heavy Horse World Spring 2019 issue is now out!
As we emerge from a muddy, snowy winter Heavy Horse World Spring 2019 issue is ready to welcome you to a new year packed with opportunities! It’s full of fascinating features and news you can use! The Spring issue is always our shows number – leading with all the info you need about the National Shire Horse Show at the Staffordshire County Showground on 22-24 March, and including our unique Free HHW Events List – compiled from returns from show secretaries up and down the country.
Highlights this issue are news of the Shire Horse Society’s Heavy Horse Camp, designed to help newcomers discover top tips; the first part of our new ‘Learn to Plough’ series in which William Castle takes you through all the practical steps you need to succeed, and a focus on two heavy horse businesses, in Lancashire and Somerset. This issue is packed with profiles of people who have found a new and absorbing life with heavies whether in breeding, showing, ridden or driven, as well as a couple of real horse characters who are making their name in very different disciplines.
There’s history, discovering the road-hauling ancestry of one of our regular contributors, and a pictorial look at one of our top lady ploughmen. Plus a new chapter starting for the Suffolk Punch Trust, and an award – for the third time – for Welsh Shire breeders. Not to be missed! You can subscribe or renew your subscription here, or phone us with your details – it’s just £30 for a year.
