See a Shire horse and you immediately think of power, strength and majesty but also their gentleness and kind disposition. The Shire horse is the most numerous of all heavy or draught horses in the UK, built with powerful muscular bodies featuring broad backs and strong hindquarters ideal for pulling heavy carts, drays, trailers, barges or in days gone by, as fearless chargers carrying knights into battle. In this specially commissioned program, we spend the day at Dan-Yr-Ogof Shire Horse Centre in the knowledgeable company of manager Sara Jane Price as she expertly explains living and working with these gentle giants and demonstrates them working in the traditional manner.
