The Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park is recognised as both a family attraction and a Conservation Centre for Rare Breed Heavy Horses. We provide an experience you won’t find elsewhere!

Our Award-Winning Park will entertain and educate all ages, whether you are a family, grandparent or a young couple. A separate timetable runs for both Adults and Children throughout the day. Let us take you on a journey, learning how these Heavy Horses faithfully served man for thousands of years, from knights in armour, war, transporting goods up and down the country to farming and pulling barges and this all came to end during one generation.

Travel in style and admire some of Dorset’s finest country side views on a Horse Drawn Carriage ride pulled by ‘Iona’ seen on BBC Wartime farm.
Sit back and relax and learn something new during captivating talks and displays.
“Drive” a real farm tractor in the off- road arena!! Or take a scenic Tractor and Trailer ride down the valley.
If it’s a little nostalgia you are looking for then take a wander around the Exhibits from days gone by, including Vintage trucks, Showman’s and Gypsy caravans (you will learn all about their horses, wagons and culture during the daily demonstration)

Little ones can ride upon Cinderella’s miniature pony and carriage ride. Children can be kept entertained with a giant adventure play park, undercover go cart arena, western bouncy castle, fairground rides, fun straw barn with drop slide and zip wire! Tots play areas, pony rides and much more!
Children are invited to join in a variety of daily tours! Farmers caps at the ready and it’s off to work we go learning all about the working horses. Get stuck in with digging, pulling and planting in the farmers garden!
While your with us, Mosey on down to Smokey Joe’s Western cafe serving wholesome, hearty portions guaranteed to fill you up!

Experience what you can’t elsewhere!
