The Dorset Heavy Horse Farm Park has sadly had to CLOSE until further notice due to COVID-19.

There is nothing more important than keeping you and your family safe as well as our horses and animals homed on the farm. During the time which the farm park is closed to visitors, the struggle to provide feed and daily care for the rare breed heavy horses and farm animals currently rests completely on our shoulders.

If you would like to help, here's how you can Support Us:

We would like to thank everyone for your kindness and continuous support. We are one of the last remaining Heavy Horse Centres now left in Britain and are determined to pull through this crisis in the hope that one day in the future we will be here ready to welcome you back.

We wish you all to remain safe and well during this difficult time.
