Horses can be a cost-effective low impact solution for extracting a wide range of timber produce. Small size and high manoeuvrability enables them to work in the tightest spaces with minimum damage to flora and fauna.
I have been horse logging since 2005 and I have won the BHL (British Horse Loggers) annual competition for single-horse logging in 2008 and again in 2009, also second place for two-horse logging in the same years.
Certificates and insurance
I hold CS30.1, CS30.2, CS31, CS32a, CS32b and CS34 chainsaw certificates. I also have both public liability insurance and employers' liability insurance covering shows and demonstration, training courses, general felling and extracting and horse work.
All of my horses are trained by myself using humane, horse friendly methods. I also offer training for people to use horses both on and off road.
Need your own horse for logging? I occasionally offer trained horses for sale.
