The Horse Raft takes you on a unique Forest Experience: a relaxing and informative walk that awakens the senses and allows you the time to discover some hidden gems in the New Forest. You will be enchanted by the area and increase your appreciation and understanding of this unique landscape. With, Sally, an expert in horse awareness you will observe herd behaviour and learn about how the ponies have shaped the landscape. Using mindfulness techniques you will see flora and fauna that you may have missed. A stroll into the history and geology, the commoners and the local traditions, a taste of some local produce and you will feel restored by the land and much more connected with the New Forest.
