Owing to Covid-19 the Working Horse Festival will not be staged in 2020.

The Working Horse Festival

The Society staged the Osberton Working Horse Festival on 5th and 6th October 2019. The event was held at the popular Osberton Horse Trials on the Osberton Estate in Nottinghamshire.

Visitors from across Europe enjoyed seeing demonstrations of horses ploughing, working down and drilling. 

The festival also featured a demonstration of agriculture through the ages with horse drawn implements alongside vintage and modern machinery. 

In addition static demonstrations in the Shire Village were held enabling those who wished to ‘pat’ the horses and learn more information about working heavy horses from their handlers.

Grateful thanks are recorded to Mr Mike Bingham and his team of Stewards, owners, handlers, volunteers and all horses in attendance for their valuable contribution.

The Society also thanks Bede Events who run Osberton Horse Trials for their valuable support.
