Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park, Verwood

(4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
The Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park provides the last full-time Heavy Horse center left in the UK and the only rescue center for these historic horses, which have served as work and war horses in Britain since 1066. Keeping the Heavy Horses company are an assortment of farm animals such as donkeys, Shetland ponies, pigs, sheep, and many more. Learn about Heavy Horses with an informative tour or educational talk. Little ones can also take part in lots of hands-on learning activities. When you arrive, be sure to check the timetable of interaction with the farm animals, such as riding, feeding, and grooming. There are plenty of indoor activities to take part in and a cafe to shelter inside if the weather is wet.
