Heavy Horses

Thwaites Heavies

A spectacular sight at summer shows, the sponsored horse teams are high cost, high maintenance. Used for heavy haulage and brand promotion, they can still be seen on the streets making deliveries of casks for traditional breweries.

Ploughing Horse

Show teams are few in number, but enthusiasts on a lower budget enjoy using  heavy horses for ploughing, logging and transport of visitors at venues such as farm parks.
