Lending a helping hand at The Suffolk Punch Trust

The Trust is dedicated to preserving the Suffolk Punch breed but also the skills of the people needed to handle these wonderful horses. They have a great team of staff and volunteers who work hard to achieve the charitable aims of the Trust so we thought we'd muck in and lend a helping hand. We went along with some of our fabulous members. Our volunteering began in the vintage farm and machinery barn; we swept up and cleaned all the drays, wagons, parade vehicles and horse drawn farming equipment. We then had the pleasure of watching one of the horses in training, it was great to see how he listened and manoeuvred, he was so hardworking, obedient and really gracious for such a large animal. Our next job was in the stable and harness room, this is where they have demonstrations to learn how to braid a horse's mane, put a horse in harness plus learn how to handle and care for horses. We cleaned all the harnesses so they stay strong and fit for purpose and refitted them back on to the model horses ready for the next demonstrations. We thoroughly enjoyed our volunteering time at the Suffolk Punch Trust, to thank our members we finished off with tea & some very lovely cake the visitor centre.
