Working Horses Experience

Immerse yourself in the historical tradition of horse drawn agriculture and join us at Hatfield Park for our Working Horses Experience.

Under the supervision of expert handlers, learn how to interact and work with these magnificent animals, extracting timber from the woodland using sustainable, historic methods. Indulge yourself in a freshly prepared picnic and glass of Champagne in our Bird Hide, overlooking the beautiful River Lea as is runs through the Hatfield Estate. After lunch, sit back and enjoy a carriage ride around our ancient woodlands and parklands.

Suitable for all levels of experience.
