Cosa farete

Arrive at Middle Week Farm and meet your instructor. Walk across our farm yard and meet our horses before retiring into the harness shed for a safety briefing, warm drink, and home baked cookies. We then cover the harness and it’s use and the basic principles of driving a horse and cart before moving over to the horse barn to groom the horse we will use today. You can either have a go at grooming, or watch how we do it. Next is the fitting of the harness on the horse in the horse barn and preparation of the cart. After that we hitch up and take a gentle run out around the farm so that I can demonstrate the principles of driving before you take the lines and drive the cart yourself. We take care to ensure your safety but horses are large sentient beings and following instructions and being cautious around our horses is important. We do expect guests to sign a disclaimer before taking part in this experience. The disclaimer absolves Middle Week Horse Drawn Services and Airbnb from any liability if you injure yourself or any other misfortune befalls you during the experience. There are ample photo opportunities during the experience and we are confident that at the end of your morning with us you will be able to drive a horse and understand the workings of the harness.

Stuart

We use our carts and wagons almost everyday on our farm and this is a chance to learn a skill that you never know when it might be useful! Besides learning a skill, it is a wonderfully grounding natural experience, genuinely analogue in an increasingly digital age. You will find no tractors on our farm, only working horses. I am a horse drawn farmer who uses three heavy draught horses to work our land with as little in the way of carbon footprint as possible. We try to tread lightly on the land and live a plain life. I have a passion for our horses and use them in their traditional role almost every day on our 11.5 acre farm in beautiful North Devon . I first worked with farm horses in the Amish and Mennonite communities of Pennsylvania U.S.A. as an 18 year old, 40 years later I still keep faith with these miracles of nature.
