Falconry & Horses, Horseback Falconry

Falconry & Horses, Horseback Falconry

 

For something different how about a chance to combine two ancient arts, Riding and Falconry.
We can offer a day's tuition, using our own horses
The day would start with an introduction to birds of prey, the way the various hawks would have been flown, and discussion as to where and why horses would have come in, followed by Handling lessons to make sure you can carry a hawk correctly.
This will be followed by Lunch at Bovey Castle
The afternoon will be spent with Hawks and horses as you learn to work the two together. You will get to work with hawks and Falcons and end flying one of our eagles from a horse, 
These are run now run on an exclusive basis for Individuals with a none participating spectator, (Weekdays only for the individual day) or 2 people (weekdays and weekends)  for groups of 3 or 4 please contact us 
Our Falconry horses are retrained racehorses so For experienced riders only, Riders must be confident to ride independently in an open environment Minimum age 16.participants will need to have their own riding gear

10% of what we make from our falconry from horses days and displays is donated back to the retraining of racehorses charity
