Training and Demonstrations

The whole Carnog team is available for working demonstrations or training days, either at your site or from our base in Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant.  We can demonstrate a full range of techniques, from single horse to pair, horselogging with the swingle tree and the timber arch and field skills such as harrowing and using the bracken roller.  We also have a variety of different harness to show.  In the woodland, in the field or on the showground, Molly and Tyler can put on a good show for you.

Working with Horses Courses at Glanaber Farm

Training with BillyWe have been running 'Introduction to Working with Horses' Courses at our home base of Glanaber Farm in Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant in Powys. These one day introductions are open to a maximum of 4 people and so will give you lots of hands-on experience with our two working cobs, Tyler and Molly.  They both love the camera and really enjoy giving demonstrations and meeting new people.  They are very steady and generous and safe for novices to learn a few basic techniques and have already done a number of courses.

We can tailor our course for you but usually during the course we will cover basic care for your horse, choosing a working horse, looking at a variety of harness and equipment as standard.  Most of the time will be given over to hands-on the reins time and giving you a real practical experience day to remember.

Introduction to Horselogging Courses at CAT

We have now carried out six successful 'Introduction to Horselogging' courses at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) near Machynlleth in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. The courses gave a practical introduction to working with horses in low-impact woodland and land management. We are currently taking a year off from our courses at CAT but visit the CAT website for details of further courses next year.

We have also carried out a number of demonstrations on CAT's range of woodland courses and in the CAT Visitor Centre.  Basic training days have been carried out for privately arranged small groups and individuals.  We can work with your horses or you can work with Tyler and Molly.  Contact us to discuss your requirements.
